Gorillas of Isabelle Alford-Lago

gorilla1.jpg There is an amazing Gorilla that appears to be leaning on an ad/bench at Pacific and Brooks in Venice that i drive by every few days and have been meaning to stop and take a pic of for ages! To my delight, today on Yo! Venice!, they have shared the new mural above that just popped up on Abbot Kinney on the side of Isabelle Alford-Lago’s amazing gorillas! This Santa Cruz native went to USC, and currently works and lives right here in Venice, CA ~ which explains why so many of her gorilla murals have been popping up nearby. Take a peek at some of my favorites on the next page!

Making of the Audi Quattro slot cars

audiSlot_main_00.jpg Here’s the latest from Shawn Sims, Director of NOTlabs and resident car aficionado.

Back in October 2012 in Toronto’s Royal Bank Plaza, a shipping container sized structure popped up alongside a new Audi Quattro A4. In the glowing glass container, you’d find quite the slot car track, essentially a tiny Audi wonderland, which you could race through via iPads. Audi Canada and Slot Mods USA took the traditional slot car track to a new level, as this one included 3D printed 1:32 scale Audi A4s that you drive with an iPad and custom cameras. Bummed you missed it? Me too. Lucky for you and I they released a great making-of video about the process of creating the interactive installation.

The short film, Painting Coconuts - The Audi Quattro Experience, is filled with inspiring craft and passion. It follows David Beattie, owner of Slot Mods USA, and his team as they produce the one of a kind interactive artwork. Every detail is painstakingly hand crafted. The trees are made from dried Japanese Sedum flowers, custom circuits were built for the POV cameras, and when sourcing a 1:32 scale model of the current A4 proved difficult, they 3D scanned a real one and used the digital file to 3D print the slot cars. Check out the making- of video and lots of close ups on the next page…

Rose Bowl Flea Market Letters

letters1.jpg Finally went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market this weekend… it was quite the overwhelming amount of any and everything… but amongst it all, totally feel for some metal letters, in a nice clean font that was hard to ignore… so we gave in.

Parker 5th Technology Pens

parker0.jpg It’s been a while since i’ve fallen for a new pen (my go to has been the G2 05 since high school) ~ but these new Parker 5th Technology pen refills are a fascinating evolution of the classic fountain pen nibs and modern technology pen refills feel incredible when put to paper!

Celebrating their 125th, Parker just sent over one of their Parker Ingenuity Pens with the new Parker 5th Technology. Coming in fine and medium with color options of Black, Blue, Peacock Blue, Olive Green, Burgundy, and Purple and quite a range pens they fit in to. So far i’ve only tried the black medium ink ~ and it flows so smoothly, it feels great. the most interesting aspect of the new design is the flexible tip, and the “design eliminates pressure, impact and temperature-induced ink leaks.” Can’t wait to try out the fine as well… take a peek at the details on the next page.

NOTlabs: Virgin Atlantic EWR Infinity Cube

updateimage1.jpg Director of NOTlabs, Shawn Sims, is taking us behind-the-scenes of our latest piece, the mirrored, Instagram Infinity Cube that just got installed in Virgin Atlantic’s new EWR Clubhouse!

The Instagram Infinity Cube was designed and built for Virgin Atlantic’s new Newark Clubhouse at EWR to complement the #howIclubhouse campaign. When visitors arrive at the lounge, they can’t miss the mirrored cube as they approach the Liquid Lounge Bar and Passion Pit… with the exterior reflecting the dazzling space around, the opening inviting them to peek inside for an even more mesmerizing look at how people clubhouse around the globe, and then encouraging them to add their own!

All sides of the inner and outer cube are mirrored, and the far interior face of the cube has a screen that displays a rotating gallery of photographs. The interior mirrors especially, create a kaleidoscopic effect by reflecting the Instagram photos from the hashtag #howIclubhouse. Since the entire cube is made of mirrors, it generates an endless symmetry in 3D space of the Instagram photo. The outer cube reflects the lounge and people moving through it. The entire cube swivels 360 degrees allowing people to view it from multiple vantage points as they move through the space.

Take a look on the next page to see how this quick project came together at NOTlabs
