Dave's kladblog is the inspirational blog of myself and my company Ontwerp in Uitvoering (Design in Progress). I focus on visualization through animation, illustration and sculptures. But I love to do everything! This blog will contain bits about design, branding, applied arts, media, managing creativity and lots more. Have fun!

Kinetic interactive sculpture

This is a video of a interactive sculpture installed in Brussels. The granite slab alone weighs about 700 Kg. and the heavy spheres can be moved by a whisper. Here it is "hearing" a fountain nearby and creating feedback loops of it's own clacking sounds.

Artist David Fried's "Self Organizing Still-Life" (SOS) is a series of interactive, sound-stimulated kinetic sculptures, which reveal his exploration into the inherent qualities of networked and emergent systems operating far-from-equilibrium intrinsic to nature, individual psyche, communication and social relationships. - text from YouTube

Online JAM session

Google Chrome/Lab come every now and then with incredible online interactive experiments. Now they've created the opportunity to jam online with friends. Who still needs the garage or basement when you have this?

But Google must have been inspired by projects like this one: "Play together"-project through www.classic-guitar.ru.

"Connecting" documentary

The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world. - Text from Basset & Partners (Vimeo)

Online sketching

Like I said: Odosketch is probably the best online sketch tool if you know how to use it (and have the talent of course). It's a great project (and clever advertisement) by the company Odopod and it's still developing. Have fun!

I love a good scary game. This short game by Mike Inel is better the less you know about it. It is free for you to download (http://gamejolt.com/freeware/games/adventure/which/1523/). You can also play it in 3D.

Onion Talk: "Your Brain-Gun: Turn The Safety Off"

Happy New Year! So let's start with a smile (and a discussion about guns...).

If you love TedTalks you've got to appreciate Onion Talks. There are already quite some uploads and they are getting better and better. This one is about guns. The following text is from YouTube:

The most powerful weapon isn't in a missile silo: it's in your head. Leonard Pace explains why we should be far more terrified of our brain guns than any manmade weapon.
