YouTube Play is an interesting and fresh collaboration between YouTube and the Guggenheim Museum to unearth and showcase the very best creative video from around the world. The project calls for video artists worldwide to enter their video’s on the dedicated YouTube channel. A jury of experts will decide which works presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York on October 21, 2010 with simultaneous presentations at the Guggenheim museums in Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice. The videos will be on view to the public from October 22 through 24 in New York and on the YouTube Play channel. Here’s the trailer:
This weekend, rapper Eminem will release his long awaited 7th album Recovery. To promote the album online, they used no less then internet celebrity Vince the Slap Chopper in a very funny infomercial. Great way to promote an album, if you ask me.
Dulux “Let’s colour” campaign is trying to transform, through color, all that abandoned and boring places that sometimes surround us. Besides the two sites, this is the tv-commercial presenting the whole thing: (the agency is EURO RSCG London)
“Billboard yourself, you are made of music” is an interactive installation, what a cool one, from Almap/BBDO in Brazil for Billboard Magazine. I specially love the non-digital essence of the knobs to choose your favourite artists: Here‘s the Flickr gallery of the people that used it.

Abuku means bubble in japanese, and that’s the word behind this video coming from W+K Tokyo Lab, in which to emphasize the air (main quality of the product) they decided to create an aquarium inside the shoe… i’m still wondering if that’s cool or weird, probably both, but that’s for sure that it’s an original approach for the idea:
This caught my attention this morning, quite good for a teaser, Coke’s secret formula turned into an ARG: There are a few links (this and this and this and this and this and this and this) inside the video to follow the story. (via Stolen Genius)
This new site from Lynx really shows that they are struggling to get back to the sites produced in the past. This site is just frustrating and has no real pay-off for the time you spend spraying a nerds wet armpits.
Using digital media is a good way of reliving historic events from the past. Last year it was all about the 40th anniversary of the first lunar landing, with outstanding projects such as We chose the moon. But last year it was also the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and that is how it was created the Go Beyond Borders Project, an initiative of Heimat Berlin and CNN International in conjunction with Berlin Tape Artist El Bocho.
