Friday TopFiveDay! #18

Our favorites of week 18

Kern’s lockdown 5.

Every week we share a top 5 of the most interesting, coolest, funniest and most exciting stuff that we have encountered on the web and elsewhere. In our studio we have been sharing things that we see around us and that we find remarkable, for as long as we’ve been a team. This way we keep each other informed of the world outside of our personal perspective, because we have a collective hunger for the new.

With this overview we give you some insight into what fascinates us. In addition to projects from clients and self-initiated projects, this is what Jort, Vivian, Jord, and John Patrick are talking about in the studio. Do share this list and let us know if you have any tips!

More lockdown, more isolation, more social distancing. But also more stuff to do, watch, enjoy and think about. Take care! Of yourself and of others.

 

Fake it

For most of us the one thing that keeps us connected to our family, friends and peers is videochatting. But sometimes even in isolation socialising can get the better of you. The fine folks over at MSCHF came up with this wonderful Chrome extension for Hangouts. Also be really sure to check out this genius concept by them!!!

 

Bowling for debate

The one documentary that’s stirring most debate this week is Planet of the Humans. Whether you’re a fan of Michael Moore’s previous films or a passionate hater of his style, his new documentary is probably a must see for all ends of all spectrums. Free for a month for all of us in Lockdown to enjoy.

 

Zoo-Mtv

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down. We never heard of them. But holy shit: what a splendid videoclip! Excellent way of creating the most within the limitations of lockdown. Kudos for Erin S. Murray and Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux!

 

The sound of Sonos

Sonos has commissioned Philip Glass to create the sound of Sonos. Or in other words their soundlogo. The background story on their blog is pretty nice.

Max understands streaming

One of the saddest things to watch in this lockdown mediastorm is probably lonely djs in deserted clubs. It’s a bit like watching avatars of djs perform in GTA V… But, there are always exceptions to every rule. Max Cooper has been touring with a gigantic VJ video-art set up for a while and he just transforms the setting from big arenas to his home studio. Works just fine!

 

Next week a new Friday TopFiveDay!!
