Music video: Another dick

About this video:
Official music video mini serie directed by Dick4Dick & Przemysław Adamski. 2008
Video was realized with cameras only (no camcorder footage). During 6 days over 120 000 pictures were taken with over 20 different digital cameras (Canon 350D, Canon 400D, Canon 5D, Nikon D50, Nikon D70, Canon Powershot A570, cell phones cameras).
Whole realization contains five videos prepared to the same single - each episode is dedicated to a different character played by a different band member. Each Dick4Dick member prepared one remix of the song for the video purposes - this way the song is slightly different in each episode.
All the stories start at the same moment in a different hotel room.

VitraHaus - Herzog & de Meuron

Photos: Iwan Baan

The Basel based architects Herzog & de Meuron greatly enriched the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, where architectural icons such as Siza, Gehry, Tadao Ando and Zaha Hadid carried out some of their most expressive works. Herzog & de Meuron’s stacked archetypical houses are the new domicile for Vitra’s Home Collection and will from now on be open Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. “The concept of the VitraHaus connects two themes that appear repeatedly in the oeuvre of Herzog & de Meuron: the theme of the archetypal house and the theme of stacked volumes. In Weil am Rhein, it was especially appropriate to return to the idea of the ur -house, since the primary purpose of the five-storey building is to present furnishings and objects for the home. Due to the proportions and dimensions of the interior spaces – the architects use the term ‘domestic scale’ – the showrooms are reminiscent of familiar residential settings. The individual ‘houses’, which have the general characteristics of a display space, are conceived as abstract elements. With just a few exceptions, only the gable ends are glazed, and the structural volumes seem to have been shaped with an extrusion press. Stacked into a total of five storeys and breathtakingly cantilevered up to fifteen metres in some places, the twelve houses, whose floor slabs intersect the underlying gables, create a three-dimensional assemblage – a pile of houses that, at first glance, has an almost chaotic appearance.”

Nouvelle Vague: Dance with me

I love this song from Nouvelle Vague. And the movie clip from Bande a Part fits just perfectly.
Thanks Linda.
