Prelim Pics

Hello,

Team NDC spent last night doing a photo shoot all over town. Before we get more color correction done (not my forte), here's a sample.





Go team N(Z?)DC!

Frosh off the Press!

The National Design Collective designed the 2009 Frosh Week Orientation Party post cards for University of Toronto. We finally got copies of it in the mail!

“the Underground” was a Black.Light.White.T-shirt.Glow.In.the.Dark party.

Official mail for The National Design Collective

The party was a huge success and the turn out was amazing.

PHOTOBOOTH FANS UNITE!


Photobooth Enlargement from the Robert E. Jackson Collection [via photobooth.net]

Amelie, 2001 [via photobooth.net]

Dawn of the Dead, 1979 [via photobooth.net]

You know how sometimes you come across something so obscure and underground that it kind of makes sense and is justified-ly amazing? Photobooth.net is one of those discoveries.

Conventions and t-shirts? The photobooth following is probably almost as obscure to the NDC as larping is to.......well, most regular folk? Unlike larping, however, we're very glad to have discovered photobooth.net.

***Disclaimer: The NDC is in no way slandering or belittling larping....just sayin'.

Chair Installation Round-Up

As daily readers of The Canadian Design Resource, a particular posting inspired us to do some contrasting and comparing of our own.

Apparently for reasons unknown to the NDC, artists are fascinated by the stacking, decapitation, and repetition of the everyday mundane chair.

Based upon factors of stackability (level of difficulty), theme (is the artist intent truly represented by the army of chairs?), composition basics, and overall awe-factor, here is an NDC Top-Ten list of Chair Installations:

10. "Copyright Chair Installation" - Superflex, 2006

09."In the Woods" - Karen Ryan, 2009

08."Chairs" - Jin Shi, 2009

07.
"Wooden Chairs Installation" - Michael Hosaluk

06.
"Chair Transformation Number 20B" - Lucas Samaras, 1996

05.
"Myth Monolith (Liberation Movement)" - Marc Andre Robinson, 2007

04.
"Sporadic Happenings - Chair Installation" - T. Janz, B. Kindler, et al.

Triangles!

Scott made these kick-ass triangle earrings from the offcuts from his last Ponoko-leather run.
