The Brooklyn Brewery Mash Tour - adventures in food, film, music, books and beer…
To promote the Brooklyn Brewery’s MASH tour, filmmakers Landon Van Soest and Paul Trillo, created a stop motion tour of the borough. The 11 city tour brings the brewery’s favorite aspects of Brooklyn culture; including food, film, music, books and beer. Keeping with the concept of touring, Landon and Paul shot over 3000 still photos to capture a glimpse of Brooklyn in under 60 seconds. The resulting piece is a fast paced, seamless transition between Brooklyn’s various neighborhoods and establishments.

We’ve had our first mulled wine and mince pie of the year, Mariah, The Pogues and Band Aid are once again filling our heads with their catchy tunes and we’re asking ourselves where 2012 went…. It is that time of year when the twinkling tree-lined streets teem with voracious shoppers and the pressure is on to think of original gifts to buy those special and sometimes not-so-special people in our lives (secret santa? really?)
Give something meaningful - give to someone who may never have received a present before…

PAPER… but not!
We’ve completely and utterly fallen in love with creative app Paper. by the clever peeps at FiftyThree Inc NY.
With the help of a trusty tablet, from the other gifted individuals at Apple, you can express your artistic as well as your productive flair on the move, which for most modern members of Planet Earth is all the time.
In their own words, Simply Beautiful.
We suppose there’s no better way to burn off the gloriously rich food than by running a marathon, right…? These three certainly think so
Except that their cause is far more noble than just palate gratification, or personal fitness.
‘The Conquistadores’ as they have labelled themselves are running for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, and they need your support.

Hello Marc Fichou… why haven’t we discovered you before..?
We’re a little bit hypnotised and completely intrigued by these poetic orgami photographs. They seesaw between graphic and sculptural, static and mobile, playing with our eyes and inviting us to imagine how many scrunched up bits of paper surrounded his studio bin as he worked out how to fold these perfect creatures. Fichou questions pictorial space by superimposing his origami animals over the very paper that contructed them. “The sheet of paper contains both the photographic and the material memories of its past orgami form. Origami and paper are one in the same thing at two different times, in two different spaces and in two different shapes.”
I can feel myself about to reach for some paper out of the printer…
How apt to stumble upon Berlin-based artist Jens Ullrich as our Olympic excitement reaches fever pitch. His large scale, cut-and-paste collages seamlessly combine dramatic sports photography with classical sculpture. The conflicting subjects are simultaneously static and dynamic, current and timeless.
Bankers can be creative!
