I stumbled upon this beautiful sculptures made using an extrusion process and then printed in 3D, really impressive!

IDEAS iPhone app… Here’s a cool new app I discovered last week that helps you think of new ideas by automatically building your personalized idea map. It’s a way of visualizing your ideas to help you find new approaches and new ideas!

Why “Infographic Thinking” Is The Future, Not A Fad —

Francesco Franchi, a master of information design, describes how “infographic thinking” goes beyond pretty pictures, and creates an entirely different sort of reading experience that encourages critical thought.

http://www.fastcodesign.com/1668987/why-infographic-thinking-is-the-future-not-a-fad

We get a lot of infographic pitches. Almost all of them suck. Why? Because while they may well be “information plus graphics,” they often lack what designer Francesco Franchi calls “infographic thinking.” This isn’t just “how to make some numbers and vector graphics look clever together.” It’s a narrative language—it’s “representation plus interpretation to develop an idea,” to quote Franchi.

Newest New Player in Digital Music, Rara.com, Is Thinking Visually

A new streaming service, Rara.com, was introduced in the United States and 15 countries in Europe, and its design is based on the premise that Spotify, Rhapsody and other competitors have bland interfaces that turn off potential customers.

http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/13/newest-new-player-in-digital-music-rara-com-is-thinking-visually/

No blank search box or long lists of songs for Rara. Instead, they’re going for colorful buttons representing moods like “Sunday morning” or “feel like crying.” Those buttons correspond to playlists programmed by the company.

    Have you tried Musicovery?

    http://musicovery.com/

    It uses some sort of visual guide and avoids the 'excel sheet' look too!

The tenth edition of ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH was pretty spectacular. It’s the largest contemporary art fair in the U.S. Everyone I met was upbeat about the selling that occured, the networking with collectors and artists, and the parties. From the Miami Beach convention center, to the Wynwood art district, it was well worth it. I’ll definately be back next year.

A beautiful book about visual perception, a classic.

Photographer Delphine Diallo’s latest project is THE GIFT, an Art Book that creates a universal language of cultural expression; a new mythical narrative daring to defy the status quo. “The Gift” will also introduce the video project ” the Gift NY” which will feature artists living in New York City, making the connection between art and The Gift .

    I like it so much, it's amazing! I really think it is a beautiful project: that video makes me look inside myself and reflect. It's a sort of comunication between peoples, between their cultures, between all the languages, but it makes, with those really shocking and charming images, a straordinary visive effect. I think I'll seek information about that project and about Delphine Diallo. Thanks for letting me know her Art.

    I agree, Delhpine's art is extremely emotional and culturally pertinent. You can find more of her work on her blog http://delphinediallo.wordpress.com/

Sub City, and artistic short film, is meant to recreate the feeling of stepping out of the subway and into a dazzling metropolis…an urban visual daydream accompanied by a magic little melody by Duke Ellington.

    oui…j'aime Paris :)

    Duke Ellington's melody is a crisp, clear, wandering flow; contrasted with one image interrupted by the next, projecting hectic subway travel inconsistent with a flowing melody. Enjoying the melody requires avoiding the video.
