Ant-Man & The Wasp: Get Your First Look.


Ant-Man was a fun movie but the sequel looks waaaay better. Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp today and it gives us our first look at what to expect from the movie. There’s no mention of Janet Van Dyne here but we do get plenty of other big reveals, including a sneak peek at The Ghost, details on what happened to Scott Lang after Captain America: Civil War and more.

Even more interesting is getting to see The Wasp in action. Her powers clearly work a lot differently to Ant-Man’s and her wings and blasters both look pretty formidable as she takes on some goons.  It looks like director Peyton Reed is really upping the ante in terms of what we’ll see visually in Ant-Man and The Wasp because buildings, vehicles, and even a Pez dispenser shrink and increase in size here. What do you guys think of this first trailer for the sequel? Sound off below.

Whats The Last Synaesthetic Art Installation You’ve Seen?

Now I know “synaesthetic” may sound like a made up word, but its definition goes as such – Surreal visuals and an engaging soundscape create an immersive space capturing the essence of motion, color and sound to visualize a synaesthetic experience of letting go and losing oneself in the creative process.  This is exactly what “Collide” has managed to do. “Collide” is a site-specific installation commissioned by Dolby Laboratories in San Francisco.  It is an interesting exploration of the senses by transforming recorded motion data into abstract visuals and sound. By mixing, reversing and eliminating restrictions of time and space, a new vision of the human body and mind is discovered. The work is a multisensory experience exploring the subjects from an emotional perspective, examining the feeling of being immersed in the creative process and attentive to the present moment as the senses combine and become one.

“Collide” was inspired by the phenomenon of synaesthesia, the union of senses. The digital art installation combines original chamber music and painterly visuals to reinterpret recorded motion data and act as a conductor for the musical score composed for the installation.  The 62-foot long digital ribbon screen situated in the lobby of Dolby Laboratories, acts as a window into a dream-like and abstract creative world. Ephemeral figures emerge out of a colourful void and fade into a surreal environment where movements appear in an abstract landscape of shape and colour. Using the onsite 54-channel speaker system, sound travels through the space, immersing visitors as they become part of the experience.

Following the inspiration of a collision of senses, visuals of the piece have a core influence of the composition and performance of the music. Stemming from a curiosity of an experience in virtual reality that affects the physical world, a soundscape was created using virtual reality as a compositional tool and source of inspiration.  To record the composition for the soundscape, a trio of cellists wore virtual reality goggles to immerse themselves in the abstract visual world of “Collide”. The musicians played the compositions written for the piece while the animations took the role of conductor. The animations provided visual inspiration for the musical score by dictating dynamism, intensity, rhythm as well as melodic figures. By separating the visual and acoustic reality, the players were isolated in different visual worlds while playing in the same physical room. Visually they were separated by the format of the animations but were connected by the collective sound audible in the room in that moment to create a new format for compositional performance.

The Gold Blooded Warriors.


 

golden-state-warriors-playoffs-denver-nuggetsThe Golden State Warriors have been on a war path since the start of the 2015 season, which has now culminated to a trip to the NBA Finals.  The city of Cleveland hasn’t won a professional sports championship since 1964 (or a year before Golden State coach Steve Kerr was born).  With Curry as their MVP they had the momentum to get into the post season, and the added depth in the entire team provided by their supporting players, these NBA Finals will be one to remember.  There’s nothing like an entire region getting behind their team to help boost the confidence, and I’m sure the Warriors will appreciate 99.7 Now’s Shan Berries tribute to her team.  The Warriors entire the finals tonight with their first game against the Cleavland Cavaliers, and make sure to share the song ‘Gold Blood’ with your fellow fans.

Barensfeld Architecture Ramps Hilgard Garden Terrace


barensfeld-hilgard-garden-designboom01

Nestled between neighboring townhouses, the ‘Hilgard Garden’ by San Francisco-based Barensfeld architecture takes advantage of its sloping topography with a series of angular terraces. Located in Berkeley, California, the brief called for an outdoor living and entertaining area, as well as an accessible seating spot at the top of the site. Based on a japanese maple sculpture park, a layered platform structure gently cascades down the steep landscape, referencing outstretched deciduous trees and navigating the change in elevation.
