This October, with the help of the Kickstarter community, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians are setting out on a journey to explore the remote countryside of Iceland and document our experiences with the landscape, residents and traditions we encounter. The end result, a beautifully packaged box set of the film and companion soundtrack, will be released to backers of the project as a physical artifact of the unique and awe-inspiring experience. We can’t wait to share the results with you.
See the teaser, read more about it, and help fund the project here.
We’ve been hard at work stocking the TSA Bookshelf. There are lots of new titles in there from independently published zines to top selling design books. We’ll be adding new books often along with some sorting functionality, as the resource grows.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed. For details on how to add yours, click here.
“The virtual communities created by online games have provided us with a new medium for social interaction and communication. Avatar Machine is a system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface. The system potentially allows for a diminished sense of social responsibility, and could lead the user to demonstrate behaviors normally reserved for the gaming environment.”
We’re having a Summer sale at the Pattern & Shape store. All tees are 25% off for a limited time. Proceeds will help fund an upcoming TSA project.
Please note: discount will be applied at checkout ($17.25 down from $23).
