A beautiful film about a pale young man in Iceland by director Dagur Kari. Gorgeous and sad.
In 1968 Charles Paul Wilp, an ad man, designer and artist, was charged with rejuvenating the German soft drink brand Afri-Cola. The result demonstrates an astonishingly avant-garde sensibility for broadcast television. The spots feature models and singers of the 60s and 70s such as Marianne Faithfull, Amanda Lear, Donna Summer and Marsha Hunt. Super-sexy-mini-flower-pop-op-cola – alles ist in Afri-Cola!
Sonne statt Reagan (1982)
May sound like a local dairy, but I’m referring to the organic architecture that Robert Harvey Oshatz has been designing in the Portland area since the 1970s. I don’t know what to make of some of his projects, so I’ll let his website do the talking:
“While most architects today are specialists who associate with other specialists, Robert Oshatz is a generalist who associates with specialists.”
