Sometimes it makes us stop!

puncutm.jpg

Sometimes, a picture makes us stop, a photograph arrests us, a drawing makes us forget what we were just doing. We’ve all had this struck-by-lightning moment with an image.

“Roland Barthes calls this arresting potential in imagery the Punctum.
It’s the sensation that floods over us, stops us in our tracks and, if only for a second, blots out everything else. We feel something new and indescribable, suddenly alone with the image. Punctum is not the sudden understanding of what the image ‘means’. It’s our sudden availability, for whatever reason, for the image to create a new meaning in us, just for us. A one-time flash of something we hadn’t felt or understood before. For that moment of interaction we are free and flying and somewhere altogether new.” (IstockPhoto)

This create a deep significant on the work of hundred designers who spent their time to create something more than just a simple aesthetic effect, visit the website, choose the categories and send your design, probably you’ll be the next winner of the puntum contest.

Get inspi(RED)

From The (RED) manifesto :

As first-world consumers, we have tremendous power. What we collectively choose to buy, or not to buy, can change the course of life and history on this planet.

RED is not a charity. It is simply a business model. You buy RED stuff, we get the money, buy the pills and distribute them. They take the pills, stay alive, and continue to take care of their families and contribute socially and economically in their communities. If they don’t get the pills, they die. We don’t want them to die. We want to give them their pills. And we can. And you can. It’s easy. All you have to do is upgrade your choice.

There are so many (RED) products : (RED) phones, (RED) t-shirts, (RED) shoes and more. All you have to do is choose them, with absolutely no money loss compared to other products, and you’ll be supporting the campaign.

Next generation legs

barbie.jpg

She’s back to life with a few more plastic but certainly real, and I’m not talking about Cher, but Barbie.
Dolly for definition, she keeps having success among  teenagers, mothers’ and everyone who want
to mirror in her perfect proportions.

Leonardo’s wouldn’t approve for sure, but we do.
A world of long legs, cabrio cars, horses with fluorescent hair describe so glamorous sceneries they make us want to revive in a box. Barbiecollectibles.com is a gift by Mattel for me and for the ones like me that want a different tomorrow, where the only thing to worry about is the colour of our hair or the last shoes’ trend. Someone created an icon of us, why don’t collect it?
