Let’s throw fablabs, coders and a lot of creative people into a museum

Last weekend was intense. I took part in the 2015 edition of Museomix as a volunteer in the Museum for Communication in Bern. But what is Museomix?

Museomix was originally created four years ago in France. It is a bit similar to hackathons or startup weekends. You put a lot of motivated people into groups and ask them to come up with prototypes after three days. The time constrains is big but to avoid complete chaos, the process is well established.

At the end of the weekend those groups had to present their work in form of a prototype. This years results are not yet online. But you can check last years results.

Autoportaits in the studio

It’s been a while since I hadn’t done a Creative Wednesday. I was too busy with building my consultancy. But yesterday I spend the whole day experimenting with photography in my studio, actually my living in room.

Since no models were available (I didn’t even ask) and my profile picture is 6 years old (!!!!) : I had my subject. I experimented with strobes, reflectors, background and shaving foam. While doing the retouching I learnt quite some new trick in Photoshop.

These are the only 3 pictures (on 270) which passed the selection.

Cool Interactive Artsy Projects

At the moment I’m looking for an interesting speaker for one of the Swiss Tech Talks that will be held in Basel. The idea is that mobile phones can be a canvas or a brush for todays artists. If you know of someone in the area which might want to present a related project: Please let me know.

Here are few interesting projects I found, not from Basel though.

Opinions: This sucks !

While playing with Illustrator I started this little serie. This idea is some things can be great or really suck depending on where you stand. Vegetarians really do suck if you are a vegetable. Ever thought of being chopped into cubes or being thrown into a blender? Yes, it really sucks!
