"Make your Franklin is a community art project.
Make your Franklin is international, bearer of a cultural reflexion.
With this mind, Make your Franklin suggest each of you to re-create a symbol of modern society : the 100$ banknote. "
"After a good deal of introspection, and teaming up with awesome motion graphics artist Gerardo del Hierro, we decided that happy wasn't happy for Physalia unless pliers, microchips and a bit of soldering were involved, and with this idea we resolved to create the happiest machine Physalia has built to date."
Jordan Taylor commented this "real life particle animations!"
Direction: Physalia ( physaliastudio.com ) & Gerardo del Hierro ( grrddh.com/ )

"My invention, the iKeyboard, addresses the one drawback of a tablet computer — the impossibility of touch-typing on its virtual keyboard.
My solution is to provide the feedback missing from a virtual keyboard by 'grafting,' or piggybacking, a real keyboard onto the screen. My invention — the iKeyboard — will sit atop the virtual keyboard and be lightweight. It will add little bulk and not increase the footprint of the tablet. It will be easy and fast to deploy and remove.The iKeyboard will improve accuracy and typing speed, letting tablet users do real writing."
"On the first of May we hosted a "luncheon" on the L line of the New York City subway. The subway is a familiar place, providing a necessary means of transportation for many New Yorkers. Its stairwells, turnstiles, platforms, trains and unpredictable elements are all-too-familiar to its dedicated patrons. One begins to know the exact time of travel from one destination to another. One begins to intuit the conditions of a ride, anticipating smooth stretches and knowing when to brace for a jarring turn. Through a series of familiar gestures, presented in commonplace locations in unfamiliar ways, we set out to challenge a habitual experience."
Adam Winnik's thesis project, the animation based on Carl Sagan reading an excerpt from his 1994 book Pale Blue Dot.
"I have always thought of Carl Sagan's writings as "scientific poetry" since they lack the cold touch that science is often cursed for having. I think Sagan's words resonate more than ever, and will continue with each generation until the human species "wakes up". The first time I heard this excerpt from his book "Pale Blue Dot" it literally changed my life, and I hope it does for you too. "
"This piece was created in the true spirit of street soccer and incorporates many of the unwritten rules associated with it. The game is either played one-on-one or two against two and the focus is not only on scoring the most goals, but also on showing who is the best. First one who plays a ball in between the legs of the opponent wins. "
"This proposal aims to connect street users, arts and science, linking them to under-laying spaces and their own realities. The installation was enjoyed during two weekends in January 2011 by the tourists, neighbours of La Rambla and citizens of Barcelona, a city that faces a trade-off between identity and gentrification, economic sustainability and economic growth."
"The result is actually pretty impressive: The weapon sent the machete all the way up to the hilt into six layers of very thick cardboard. Try to do that by throwing a machete! No way." [ Youtube ]
"I first wanted to make something so I could chew on my pen without making it dirty. When looking at the pen I noticed that you only use the ink, the other stuff is just there to hold filling more comfortable. Isn’t it possible to eat the whole cover? That was my goal, a pen where you can chew on and entirely eat. First gathered at a lot of pens and looked what makes it good to chew on.
With that information I made 3 different molds and started testing out different types of candy, the breaking point and which chew the best. When I found the shape and candy I made a final model in peppermint flavor. The candy which is used doesn’t stick on anything and doesn't melt when it's in your hans. (To get an idea: It has the same texture as candy bracelets.)It contains 22 pieces and is filled with edible ink. The only thing which isn't edible is the small point where you write with. When finished you throw it away or put in in a new re-fill pen. "
