SHINE is a collaborative film project produced by BIZNIK.com, an online networking community for micro business owners and solopreneurs. The project began on May 6, 2009 when 12 video crews and over 400 entrepreneurs gathered in Seattle’s largest film production studio to share why they work long hours, for low pay, facing great uncertainty.
The film combines compelling stories from the event, and interviews with academics, celebrated researchers (like Scott Shane author of Illusions of Entrepreneurship), and entrepreneurial superlatives (like Bruce Livingstone, founder of iStockphoto, acquired by Getty Images for $50M).

This project of Arelien Juner, the series – Surface – is a reflection on de function of fashion magazines as a medium of dissemination of ” mass culture” images and its relation with the reality. It’s about questioning the status of the fictional world and idealized created for the magazine, and its relationship to the real world where the image is built.
The series is proposing an approach of the object by selecting covers with a big diffusion. The context is changed, the magazine on white background becomes only an illumination.
Plastic and photographic work, this series, as an object of mass culture, can give new meaning to the existing image and more generally, to question the meaning of an image. What is magazines’ perception as a presenter of the image? What influences the image, shown on the cover? Does it have an impact on our own perception, our does it have an impact on the society? These are a lot of questions you can get when watching this artwork.

So this documentary is all about service design thinking. I have read the book “this is service design thinking”, it is very interesting and we are working with it at the academy. This docu gives you a sneak peak in what I am learning at international lifestyle studies.
This film is a Zilver Innovation initiative, and was created by 6 students from the Master in Strategic Product Design at the TU Delft in The Netherland

Artist Gaëlle Villedary developed a grass carpet for the french village Jaujac. His project is called tapis rouge, what means; red carpet. Making a symbol of honor for the village, by connecting nature and their ways, the connection, the link, a way to connect the heart with the village and the inhabitants with the valleys. The incarnation of the threat that is crossing Jaujac through the ages is a piece of nature, a communion between nature and men, though art. Curious where the carpet will take you?

De Culinaire werkplaats is a wonderful place founded by Marjolein Wintjes and Eric Meursing. They want to inspire you with fooddesign, foodinspiration and other innovative foodconcepts. They are also very conscious by their choice of ingredients, their ingredients have to be produced animal friendly, local, fair trade, direct trade, seasonal and good for personal health. The creations they make are almost art.
Inspiration is the key of this concept. De culinaire eetplaats is working to create ‘the dinnerplate of the future’. For example they used the inspiration BLACK. Images of this inspiration are above.
The loveliest thing of this concept is work’in: They offer you the chance to join them and learn by doing. You can decide what kind of project you want to learn. You can learn about technique, about season products and more information about food.
Last but not least, they offer a shop’in: You can buy great products from their seasonal collection. All products are chosen consciously

Yayoi Kusama has a new exhibit at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane and it is a great one. This 82-year old women but still up and running. In 2002 she set up the interactive children’s project, this exhibition is called obliteration room and is a part of that project. Interaction became an important aspect in Kusama’s work in the mid to late 60′s. In the beginning it was a white room, a perfect domestic australian environment. A white canvas ready to be obliterated. She let kids with thousand of coloured stickers decorate the room. In the pictures above you can see the colour explosion!
The Obliteration room is part of the exhibition: Look now, See forever and you can visit it at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane till 11 march 2012.
