For the Santa Monica Pier Festival, GMUNK realised TrueCar, an installation interacting with its audience by following individual and the crowd’s actions. Therefore, the gigs in Santa Monica become participative with this interactive and unique experience.
For this public artistic project made for the city of San Francisco, Refik Anabol has composed a collection of parametric data sculptures representing the soul of the city and the one of its inhabitants. This project helps to develop the public contemporary art by offering a hybrid mix of architecture and media arts from the 21st century.
On last december 14th, Voyages SNCF invited web’s influencers at la Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine for a #VeryGoodTrip evening hosted by Shirley Souagnon.
The goal was to present Voyages SNCF ’s new offers (TGV, iDTGV, Ouigo, Ouibus and VoyagesSNCF.com) in a festive and funny way: imaginary characters (improvisation) live extraordinary journeys that influencers can shake up via tweets.
But, no matter what happens: SNCF Voyages always have the best solution to answer their needs!
Therefore, Snow White could peacefully leave with her seven dwarfs and her prince thanks to the group offer, Harry Potter could finally go to the Festival of Magic in Brest with all his spells books through OUIBUS.
By the same time, guests revealed Mika’s last music video on Twitter and TGV’s new advertising campaign and win several gifts thanks to a picture contest on Social Networks.
A Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet realization, where the wood etchings of the first talk with the audiovisual productions of the second. A staging of the absurdity of the world from its origins to the mind’s wandering. The scenography, built as a watch mechanism, immerses the visitor in this Lille 3000 exhibition.
This is the email Jeremiah Dillon, marketing product manager for Google Apps for Work , sent to his teams. Would this not be the resolution to all collectively should hold in 2016? At LDR, we will try to stick to it.
“Subject: If you don’t have time to read this . . . read it twice.
Stop. Breathe. Now, think about how you’re managing your time. Speaking for myself, I have some room for improvement.
It’s been said there are two paradigms to scheduling — the manager and the maker.
The manager’s day is cut into 30-minute intervals, and they change what they’re are doing every half hour. Sorta like Tetris — shifting blocks around and filling spaces.
The maker’s day is different. They need to make, to create, to build. But, before that, they need to think. The most effective way for them to use time is in half-day or full-day blocks. Even a single 30-minute meeting in the middle of “Make Time” can be disruptive.
We all need to be makers.
Ok. Great idea. I’ll do that . . . you know . . . later . . . I’m late for a meeting.
No. It doesn’t work that way. The only way to make this successful is to be purposeful. Establish an implementation intention. You need to define precisely when and where you’ll reserve Make Time for your projects. Let me tell you a story about a study on this effect:
The control group was asked to exercise once in the next week. 29% of them exercised.
Experiment group 1 was given the same ask, along with detailed information about why exercise is important to health (i.e., “You’ll die if you don’t”.) 39% of them exercised.
Experiment group 2 was asked to commit to exercising at a specific place, on a specific day at a specific time of their choosing. 91% of them exercised.
Commit to protecting Make Time on your calendar, including the time and place where you’ll be making, and ideally detail on what you’ll be making. That way, you know, it’ll actually happen.
So, I can just do this like . . . last thing on Friday, right . . . after all of my meetings are over?
Actually, no. Many of our meetings could be shorter or include fewer people, and some don’t need to happen at all. Take back those hours for your Make Time instead. But don’t put it off till the end of the day on Friday — the time you choose really matters. Your energy levels run the course of a wave throughout the week, so try to plan accordingly:
Aim to do the following:
Monday: Energy ramps out of the weekend — schedule low-demand tasks like setting goals, organizing, and planning.
Tuesday, Wednesday: Peak of energy — tackle the most difficult problems, write, brainstorm, schedule your Make Time.
Thursday: Energy begins to ebb — schedule meetings, especially when consensus is needed.
Friday: Lowest energy level — do open-ended work, long-term planning, and relationship building.
Always bias your Make Time toward the morning, before you hit a cycle of afternoon decision fatigue. Hold the late afternoon for more mechanical tasks.
My new challenge to you: create and protect your Make Time, and before you “steal someone’s chair,” consider whether it’ll be disruptive to their Make Time.
I have Make Time on my calendar. Please don’t schedule over it, and I promise to do my best not to schedule over yours.”
We can be heroes, just for one day
The graphical development office and multimedia TRAFIK produced with Tetro a light installation, interactive and orginal sound, which was presented during the River Night Festival 2015 in Singapour : 20 arches (2.70 x 2.20 m) of 8 illuminated units offering nearly 160 bright prospects possible.
The audience plays with this structure thanks to a touch pad and can change the light to create new possibilities and change its intensity.
Lever de rideau wish you a happy 2016 !
