Slow motion video of the day. First Taste / TEDx Sydney 2013.

Tasty video bit at #TEDxSydney 2013.

Video by Saatchi & Heckler

"TEDx Sydney 2013 was probably full of great ideas, speakers, and presentations, but it’s a two-and-a-half-minute video about babies and food that wound up stealing the show. “The First Taste,” created by Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney and Heckler, shows young children reacting to their first experiences with unusual foods like anchovies, gherkin, and Vegemite."

Video art of the day. Repopulate -- Blake Shaw Video Painting Tel Aviv / Jerusalem 2013 (THE BRIDGE Preview).

Repopulate -- Blake Shaw Video Painting Tel Aviv / Jerusalem 2013 (THE BRIDGE Preview) from SWEATSHOPPE on Vimeo.

In April 2013 Blake Shaw traveled with Jay Haze to the Occupied Palestinian Territory for his first trip to launch "The Bridge", a new telecommunication art project to facilitate real-time artistic collaborations amongst people across borders using 'Nomad.OS' a live-streaming software he is currently developing.
In this video he takes portraits of refugees from Balata, Al-Jalazone, and Al-Am'Ari refugee camps and uses video painting to paint their portraits onto historical sties in the Israeli cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and the old city of Jaffa in an effort to symbolically return the image of these refugees to their ancestral homes.
Video Painting is a technology developed by Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy aka SWEATSHOPPE that uses custom interactive software, video projection, and electronic paint rollers outfitted with LEDs to create the effect of painting videos on walls. The technology allows them to explore the relationship between video, architecture, and mark making and create video collages in real-time.
Music by Jay Haze aka Dub Surgeon
Special thanks to Jay Haze, Koan Baysa, Jack Persekian, Neda Mansouri, The Goethe Institut, Lolita Brayman, Public Art Lab Berlin, Efy Tal, the Khouriya family, Al-Qattan Foundation, Yafa Cultural Center, Edie Rush, Yoram Aharony, all of the people of Palestine, all Israelis against the occupation, and everyone who has helped support this project thus far, and will continue to help support building "The Bridge" in the future.

Contagious stuff of the day. Protoleaf SOIL RESTAURANT - Sky Brazil #SkyRec - The Beer Turnstile Antarctica.

Thanks to Contagious

More info here
Protoleaf is a Japanese gardening soil brand. Concerns about nuclear radiation from Fukushima had caused consumers to question soil safety -- even in store-bought products. We wanted to let our stakeholders, including consumers and trade, recognize the surprising quality and safety of the product.
What if the soil was so safe, you could actually eat it? To showcase our soil quality and safety, TBWA\HAKUHOD opened "The Soil Restaurant" with a Michelin 3-star chef who created a full course meal using Protoleaf Soil as the main ingredient. The restaurant was open to the public and charged $110 per person.
Customers and Media ate it up: The Soil Restaurant was widely reported on in Japan, and the news spread to over 20 countries globally, including features on CNN and the Discovery Channel. With zero media investment, we clearly demonstrated the product safety to the world. Total free media exposure amounted to approximately US$8,900,000. As a result, consumers felt safe to buy soil again, and sales surged 130% versus the previous year. People could return to gardening and producing their own food.

The Beer Turnstile Antarctica

During the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, the high consumption of alcoholic drinks is the main responsible factor for the increase in traffic accidents. Drunk drivers are directly involved in the increase of 50% of fatal accidents during this time of the year.
Antarctica's objective, the most consumed beer brand and sponsor of the event, was to make its consumers arrive safely at home after drinking.
We developed The Beer Turnstile. A new underground turnstile for which the ticket was an empty Antarctica beer can. Via optical reading, the can was scanned and the passage freed. The person just needed to save the last beer can and use it to get home safely

Ad of the day. Coca-Cola Small World Machines - Bringing India & Pakistan Together.


In March 2013, Coca-Cola set out to break down barriers and create a simple moment of connection between two nations -- India and Pakistan. The initiative "Small World Machines" provided a live communications portal between people in India and Pakistan and showed that what unites us is stronger than what sets us apart. The key to engaging with each other through the machines was simple: people in India and Pakistan could complete a task, like touching hands, drawing peace, love, and happiness symbols -- together.

Funny campaign of the day. Language of the Domestic Jungle - Presented by Clorox & Onion Labs.


There's the average diaper disaster, and then there's the big daddy. The Onion Labs take a look at this rare Category 5 baby blowout known as Poopocalypse, and it is enough to bring a human to its knees. There's no way to stop it, but one can prepare. Using Clorox® Regular-Bleach1 gets surfaces and whites back to normal in no time.


In the average human home, a stealthy adversary lies in wait. The Onion Labs takes a look at this mysterious sticky substance as it strikes, grossing out its victims when they least suspect it. Its name is Grueslime. And the cleaning and germ-killing power of Clorox Clean-Up® Spray is the human's best defense.

Animal Spot of the day. PETA - 98% Human. The end of wild animals in film and tv is coming.
