Goodbye

This blog will now be closed down.

From now on I am blogging on It is only human.

Book writing eats blog writing

Dear all,

Sorry for the long and empty hole I left here on Channel 8000 – unleash curiosity planning.

But my leave from the blogosphere has a reason. Perhaps not a great one, but at least a good one.

I’ve been spending a lot of time working with Preben Sepstrup on writing Tilrettelæggelse af information: Kommunikations- og kampagneplanlægning 4. Our deadline is the beginning of may, so I’ll still be absent for a few month. But now you know. Hope you’ll think it’s okay. And buy the book instead :)

Two players – one winner

The internet flows with commercials surrounding the game tonight. Competitive, fun, expensive and some boring. Big media events are always subject for both lame and bold advertising.

This one I like due to the easy feel and the soundtrack: 

Enter Action – digital art now

Spend my sunday morning on the Aros museum of arts, visiting the current exhibition Enter Action. It was interactive, entertaining and a very interesting experience. 

Here’s what is written on the exhibition from Aros’ website

The exhibition ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now is a digital journey in to works by a group of artists who enjoy international recognition. In the crossover between art and technology their works reflect upon the increasing influence on the picture of the world that the media technology has today.

Common to the works represented at ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now is that they use digital technologies and the exhibition presents interactive installations, projections, works of light and sound and internet based art.

Representing a high value of experience ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now challenge a traditional conception of both viewer and work. Some of the works register the guests present and change character according to the conduct of the guests.

 

ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now visualizes the capacities of the computer and the internet which modify our perception of categories as time, space, body and relations. The exhibition focuses on how the new technologies affect our lives, experiences and our perceptions of the world.

Furthermore they made a subsite for the exhibition which is worth visiting both before and after.

It is just called  enteraction

When contextual placement goes wrong

Thanks to what I think must be Google Adsense I started the day with a fun example of contextual advertising. Or contextual mess up. You decide.

New Tic Tac Campaign

Our clever Vizeum people in CPH made this campaign with Buzzanova and it is quite interesting.

And it has its own little Guitar Hero Spoof (one more).
