Their ad campaign features model Karlie Moss in a fairytale-esque setting which harps to Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, the Genie of the lamp, the Little Mermaid and the Princess and the Pea. Elegant, opulent and chic -- Hermes rarely disappoints.

A Little Knowledge Goes a Long Way

The making of...Dance | Danse

Julien Vallée donne vie aux objets avec "Danse Dance", un projet qui mêle "stop motion" et interactivité pour l'exposition "If You Could Collaborate", tenue à la Foundation Gallery de Londres.

"Nous sommes entourés d'objets auxquels nous ne portons pas attention. Nous les utilisons seulement quand nous en avons besoin afin de nous assurer qu'ils n'empiètent pas trop dans notre espace. Mais s'ils n'étaient pas si serviles? Que se passerait-il s'ils pouvaient tourner, sauter ou même voler? Et s'ils le faisaient tous en même temps?"

Tokujin Yoshioka created this installation, at the Maison Hermes in Tokyo. The visual + magical play between the scarf and the person in the video is a refined and subdued must see.

Scott Snibbe's work is as "emotionally engaging as cinema, yet one where people remain aware of their bodies and their social relationships." His screen series consists of projected white light that interacts with the participants movements based on perconceived emotions or states, such as shyness, deception, and depletion. As people walk up to the screens the projected image comes alive.
