You may have seen the viral video “Old Man In Nursing Home Reacts To Music.” Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett talks about that moment and his documentary about reaching through dementia with music.
"Our film addresses some subjects people don’t like to talk about, yet it’s a joyous experience because we show that people suffering from memory loss still have this life inside that runs incredibly deep."
Blind Self Portrait
Blind Self Portrait uses computer vision algorithms to build a contour drawing of the visitor, and a moving platform guides their hand to execute the drawing while their eyes are closed. The experience of machine-guided movement is surprisingly uncanny, and when the drawing is complete it’s unclear who should be signing the work.
Exhibited at the NYC Resistor Interactive Show and the Slap Dash series at Launchpad in Brooklyn.
LX Type, a typography made from the mesh of the tram’s electrical wires.
The iconic trams of Lisbon do not go unnoticed. Neither do the wires that provide them with energy and that are spread across the city’s most charismatic neighborhoods. Still, Leo Burnett Lisboa looked at these in a different way and saw a typography in its complex mesh.
And like that, with the support of the Lisbon City Council, the official font Lisbon was born.
On the website lxtype.pt, where it can be explored and downloaded for free, everyone can test the font and find out a place associated with each letter, transforming words in spontaneous and personalized guides of the city.
To spread the idea, a film was created and directed internally by Hugo Lage and with a soundtrack kindly provided by Dead Combo.
