Forofficeuseonly launches a new project for MoMA; The Changing of the Avant Garde. Art directed by renowned, Anh Tuan Pham, the site is as beautifully rendered as all their previous work.
In case you missed The Russian Avant-Garde Book 1910-1934 done by the same team, don't forget to give it a try.

Yaki-marshmallow

Just got back from 3 days in the mountains in Nagano-ken, staying at a friend's place. Perfect for relaxation, gluttonery and savage meat-eating; we took almost 5 kilos of beef and chicken (we where only 4), which we kept on roasting in the fireplace there during all our stay. Well, yeah, there was some marshmallows, veggie and pasta too, but bbq in the wild is just so good!

Forest of Thoughts

Well, this one is *really* old news, can't believe I missed it before.
I got this url forwarded by Haruchin today, and spent a good time clicking around there. After a little research I found that "the Forest of Thoughts" is a 2 year old project for an "exhibition in progress" which over the period of 6 weeks was constantly changing and beeing developed by a group of contributors from all around the world.
It got the excellence award at the media arts festival here in tokyo that same year.

"This site is a skillfully interconnected renka (a song-like poem) of stills, videos, sound and text from 15 of the world's greatest cutting edge digital creators."
