L’entretien d’embauche

La question (qui n’en est pas une) qui tue.

1968 DIGITAL

« Comment aurait-on suivi et raconté les événements de 68 avec un smartphone? (…) 1968 Digital suit l’histoire d’un personnage racontée depuis un téléphone portable qui aurait pu lui appartenir. » Exemple :  Alexander Dubček, premier secrétaire du Parti communiste tchécoslovaque en 1968-1969 et instigateur du Printemps de Prague de 1968.

Focused Listening

Soundmapping promotes focused listening. This website offers an interface for users to explore and listen to the city with a purposeful and special attention that is rarely given to the sounds of the environment. We aim for people to continue this attentive listening and experience the complexity and lure of the soundscape firsthand. This promotes a more optimistic approach to acoustic ecology, encouraging listeners to lend a musical ear to the soundscape.” — Montréal Sound Map

A Bear’s-Eye View of Yellowstone

Looking for inspiration? Take a look at this incredible long scrolling One Pager that takes us on a journey with 4 bears as they navigate the heart of Yellowstone, as seen from the bears’ own point of view. I love bears…

Magnifiquement baroque

Sa manière d’enseigner est simple, nette, et consiste en pratique plus qu’en discours ; il ne dit pas ce qu’il faut faire, il le fait ; et en ceci, comme en bien d’autres choses, l’exemple vaut mieux que la règle. (…) Tu trouveras bientôt dans ta sensibilité l’énergie et la vivacité de l’accent qui anime la musique italienne.
