The Clock: Free viewing this weekend

I haven't seen this yet, but people I know that have say it's excellent. A 24 hour film using footage from well known films that corresponds with the actual time of day. That's a rubbish explanation that doesn't do it any justice. A better description is here.
It's running this weekend from 6pm Saturday. Free entry.

Creative Floor Nightout 001 - Glug - Things to make and do

Last night we went to Glug at Cargo.

The presenters came from a wide range of specialisms from traditional craft to digital media.

Among them I find the talk by Mudlark the most interesting. Which is about a new approach into developing social games. The principal surrounds how narrative are being generated and captured using existing platforms (yet taken for granted) like Oyster card.

A good example is a game they developed called Chromaroma, which captures stories from daily commuting experiences:

They also shared point of views about Gamification. In case you missed the talk shared few weeks ago, games like Chromaroma had applied concepts like Gamification to enhance user engagement.

Other highlights include a Creative Review talk about their film making projects as well as a free letter press poster made by Mr Smith.

The .wwf format is essentially a pdf that can't be printed. This amazingly strikes a balance between massively simple and massively ambitious. And a really good ad for WWF to boot.

Infographics put in context

A simple idea that takes infographics out of the realm of graphic design.

Smile! You're on the internet.

An experiment that demonstrates how your webcam can detect facial expressions, in this instance, everytime you see something online which makes you smile.

Diesel Island

Diesel Island - Land of the Stupid, Home of the Brave - is Diesel's latest campaign . Cross-media boosters like viral videos, a facebook application, a game based on island's everyday life and pirate radio will complement the print and posters and invite users to form and become part of a new nation.
