I have know about Dismaland for awhile. I was excited, curious and so many other things I won’t talk about. I was just happy to be attending an event that I was going to as a fan and a supporter. I didn’t have to work the door, deal with clients or even collectors—I could just have fun. And what fun did I have. BANKSY really has outdone himself AGAIN. Dismaland shits all over the art world without even trying. It shows what hard work and believing in yourself and doing things on your own terms does. Not only does BANKSY bring together a terrific group of artists old and new, he makes us look at their work in a different setting. This is the show that art needs, that galleries and curators are going to be striving to stand up to. Well, it ain’t gonna happen is the news I have for them.
An important thing to note is that no where through out Dismaland did I see BANKSY branding and marking things. It wasn’t “BANKSY PRESENTS.” Again another WIN.
Another important note is they did have pizza – and yes I got one and it was good. I don’t have pictures of that. I know, I suck.
For the second of two innovative films that debuted at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Infiniti’s Executive Design Director, Alfonso Albaisa, takes viewers into the design process of the QX30 concept car. “From Pencil to Metal” brings you into the studio to see initial sketches of the vehicle being scribbled in thin air, as the car is created around you. From CAD files to clay modeling to the impeccable finished product, the team at Infiniti has put the driver first, creating a virtual reality experience where the car takes shape around you—literally; thanks to YouTube’s 360o video playback, users can look around the car as it comes to life. The team behind the project tells us, “Traditional media can be one-sided, and seem to talk at consumers. But VR allows us to literally bring them inside of the Infiniti brand, an Infiniti car and an engaging story.”
“I like the way stores work so hard to earn your enthusiasm. Stores are so well thought out and make your head feel shiny and new, and then you get home and your house is a mess and you think to yourself, well, at least stores have their shit together.”
