The Streets of Tokyo

This video by Vincente + Sara of the streets of Tokyo is serene, lovely and full of slow movement. It makes me want to visit again, to see again the small things hidden within the bustling city. But I actually debated whether to post this video because it’s essentially a promotion for Zara, which was one big chaotic mess last time I was there. Here’s to the hope that good advertising erases a blah experiences (via GOOD).

The Between

The Land Between Here and Mountains, a photography blog with images that capture the journey between here and there. Above: between a cloud covered sky and a snow covered street (dave geeting). Below: between having nothing to do and getting sort of lost in the woods (joshua whitelaw)

The Real Good Experiment

Finding useful stuff on the street is pure joy, like stumbling upon a pile of used books or a couch with hidden potential. Curb-mining becomes even better when you unknowingly get to be part of a good experiment.

Blu Dot decided to drop 25 Real Good chairs around the streets of New Yorks to see where they would end up. Hidden cameras and GPS enabled them to follow the reactions of people on the street upon seeing the chairs, filming the process from discovery, interest, inspection, to possession and then showing up at their door to ask them what they thought of the chair. PUNCOs to INCOs.

Fifty People, One Question

Fifty People, One Question is a project by Crush + Lovely who film the answers of 50 people in one place, answering one question. A small peek into the lives and wishes of some people on the street. The question asked in Brooklyn: Where would you like to wake up tomorrow?
