A nice example how power of a shopkeeper goes over the will of the city inhabitants. More importantly, city counsil shows amazing disrespect for its role to listen to what the citizens want. Shops you can get anywhere, especially if they are already there.. why kill your city space and little green for it?

Using 3-D video-mapping technology, the guys at Mr. Beam were able to transform a plain white living room filled with plain white furniture into whatever kind of fancily decorated living room they desired by projecting different patterns onto the various elements.
We created an unique physical 3D video mapping experience by turning a white living room into a spacious 360° projection area. This technique allowed us to take control of all colors, patterns and textures of the furniture, wallpapers and carpet. All done with 2 projectors.

Progressive (provoking) artists nowadays need to deal with the soft power -stop signs in our head- as oppose to explicit signs and rules in public, if they want to get their message out. This is much harder than it seems.
But it can be done. Grenzfurthner shows with an example, which remind me of the YES-man trick, but his point is much broader than the YES-man. Enjoy.

It is just a nice selection, but gives a good idea what was around in commercial cinema the last 12 months.
Photographic documentation of a Space Shuttle launch plays a critical role in the engineering analysis and evaluation process that takes place during each and every mission. Motion and Still images enable Shuttle engineers to visually identify off-nominal events and conditions requiring corrective action to ensure mission safety and success. This imagery also provides highly inspirational and educational insight to those outside the NASA family. This compilation of film and video presents the best of the best ground-based Shuttle motion imagery from STS-114, STS-117, and STS-124 missions. Rendered in the highest definition possible, this production is a tribute to the dozens of men and women of the Shuttle imaging team and the 30yrs of achievement of the Space Shuttle Program.(via)

My workshop is located in an old storefront with a big window facing towards the street. In an attempt to create more privacy inside, I’ve decided to install a small but smart curtain in that window…The whole setup works really well. But in the end, it doesn’t protect my privacy at all. It seems that the existence of my little curtain is leading itself ad absurdum, simply by doing its job very well. | Niklasroy.com [via Tijs]

How did “The Simpsons” manage to track down Banksy, the pseudonymous British artist, and get him to create the powerful opening-credit sequence from Sunday’s episode, which seems to reveal the torturous sweatshop responsible for the show’s creation? And how, after all that mockery, have the producers behind that Fox animated series been able to retain their jobs? | Artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com
