Friday Props are back with a vengeance. A flashy, neon colored vengeance.
Kicking things off this round of friday props is Toronto based indie game design studio Astroid Base. They’re currently working on Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, a gorgeous Co-op micro-platformer. Featuring lasers, colorful explosions, a quirky soundtrack, and a space dog named Dash, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime looks to be a uniquely compelling co-op game. A release date hasn’t been set yet, but we have been told the game will be released on Xbox One as well as via Steam for both PC and Mac.
Our second props go to “The Selby” an ongoing project by Photographer Todd Selby. The project “features photographs, paintings and videos by [Selby] of interesting people in creative spaces.” Today we’re propping photos taken of Philip Oakley and Olivia Yip at their bespoke lighting shop, Philip Oakley Illuminations. These photographs are full of curiosities and pizazz, and offer a great introduction into a really fun, and visually beautiful, project.
Our third props goes to Slow Magic, whose new album How to Run Away dropped on the 9th. Slow Magic’s music blends seamlessly with his neon clad persona. Check out this audiotree live session from last year. If you like what you hear you can stream the new album over at Hype Machine.
Last but not least on our list of Props today is Flower Carpet, a biennial event that takes place in Brussels. Every two years volunteers undertake the construction of a giant flower rug in front of the Grand Palace in Belgium in recognition of Turkish heritage in the country. Constructed entirely from begonias, this years rug measured 24 by 77 meters and featured vibrant colors, and patterns inspired by the Turkish Kilim. Check out the events website for galleries of this, and past years rugs.
That’s it for this weeks Friday Props! But we’re always on the lookout for cool things. Find something props-worthy? Share it with us in the comments or on our Facebook page.
