Ever imagined what Darth Vader’s iconic Star Wars helmet would’ve looked like, had it been designed by artists like Mister Cartoon and Marc Ecko? For a venture dubbed The Vader Project, creatives Shag, Jermaine Rogers, The Pizz, Paul Frank, Ron English, Jeff Soto, Michelle Valigura, Plasticgod, Suckadelic and Amanda Visell among others, have been brought together to customise 1:1 scale replicas of the actual helmet from George Lucas’ original trilogy. Featuring 100 re-imagined Vader helmets, this exhibition is the fourth and final installment of the Project and will be on show in Los Angeles for 10 days in June.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the way memory and sight work together. I don’t think we remember in “pictures” or long videos… but something in between. Perhaps we also sense, at times, more than 30 fps, and unexpected parts of the brain fire when we are presented with certain objects and forms.
I really love this video. More info on Trey here. Undoubtedly talented.

Built in the late 1800s, the Neuschwanstein Castle in the state of Bavaria in southeast Germany was meant to be the private retreat of the reclusive King Ludwig II of Bavaria, but he died before it was completed. The castle was opened to the public in 1886 and it has seen over 60 million visitors since then. The Neuschwanstein Castle was built in the Romanesque Revival style and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle. The castle is one of the most popular in Europe and currently sees over 1.3 million visitors a year and as many as 6,000 per day in the summer months. The castle overlooks the Hohenschwangau valley and is near the tourist town of Fussen where accommodation can be found.
these photos are amazing…i’m obsessed with underwater fashion photography. I love the movement and the colors.

The towering red sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are one of the most spectacular sights to be seen in Namibia. Sossusvlei itself is a clay pan fed by the Tsauchab River. In addition to the sea of red sand dunes, Sossusvlei is also home to the Dead Vlei, meaning “dead marsh”, an eerie white clay pan filled with dead Camelthorn trees. This area is contained within the Namib-Naukluft Park which is in turn a part of the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world. The best time to visit Sossusvlei is at sunrise or sunset when the colors are the most vivid and the sun is not too hot. Accommodation near the area ranges from luxury resorts, to mid-range lodges, to numerous campgrounds.
