There is nothing connecting this weeks Props together expect maybe - just maybe - they are all pretty neat. The first Props is going out to our old friend the Spirograph.

It’s Friday Props! This week we’re giving props to one item and one item only, because it’s that good. Go ahead and navigate to The DNA Project and tool around for a little bit. Just to start, the site is hands down, no questions asked, strikingly beautiful. Give the intro video a moment to load before diving in, but do take the chance to fully explore this new project by Brooklyn based musician j.viewz. The goal is to share the music creation process, and allow viewers to leave their marks on the work in hopes of enriching the entire experience. Built Read More >>


Friday Props - Keep Calm and Carry On

With the holiday season already upon us many are feeling overwhelmed. We’ve found some props this week to remind you to keep calm, and carry on. First up is the incredibly stressful, incredibly fun looking indie game “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes”. The concept is simple, one player plays in virtual reality, where they are presented with a bomb and no knowledge of how to disarm it. In the real world, other players around the diffuser pour over manuals and cooperatively work to talk the virtual reality player through the disarming process. The mechanics of the game are simple, but ingenious. Read More >>


Friday Props #91 - Internet findings

Good tidings and strange findings, it’s an internet depths edition of Friday Props. We’ve got another round of things that only exist because of the internet, starting with this list of airport’s baggage carousels, and the directions they turn in. Found via the Dull Men’s Club website, which sports taglines such as “wherever you go, there you are” the list is exactly what you’d expect it to be, but here’s the link nonetheless. We’ll follow up with a project from French telecom company Orange that lets you virtually age yourself 20 years, and interact with the result. The project is Read More >>


Friday Props #90 - Musical Connections

It’s Friday once more, and despite the festivities, we managed to steal some time to find a couple of props-worthy gems. We’ll open with this unique music video for Wilkinson's “Afterglow”. Director Remy Cayuela has picked up multiple awards for the video, including first prize in the Young Directors Award at the Cannes Festival this year and a nomination for ‘Best dance video’ award at the UK Music Video Awards. The video breaks down a romantic relationship into statistics to create an interesting profile of two people through numbers. Watch it below, but be warned it does contain some NSFW Read More >>


Friday Props - the Audio Visual Edition

Props this week are short on words, but rich in visual and audible intrigue. We’ve scoured the internet for some of the most props-worthy, music heavy videos we could find. We’ll kick off with a beatbox breakfast sequence by Finnish artist Felix Zengar. Felix’s work heavily on looped audio tracks to deliver some sweet beats. You can find more of his work via his website, and if you find Zengar’s work compelling check out similar artist Beardyman. His Ted talk, “The Polyphonic Me”, is especially interesting and shows how modern musicians can overcome the restrictions of the human voice.  Moving on from Read More >>


Friday Props #88 - Useless

It’s clear that the internet is an invaluable tool in modern society, and it’s chock full of interesting, useful, items, all just a click away. Last weeks props came at you with a collection of useful tools from around the web. That being said, today's props go out to some of the most useless websites we could find. Those that dare to embrace the freedom of the internet to do nothing of particular use. We’ll open with a throwback to an internet sensation circa 2006, Loituma Girl. Also known as the leek spinner, this clip is a prime example of some of Read More >>


Friday Props #87 - Useful

Todays props go out to some of the incredibly useful tools of the internet. From planning your next vacation to figuring out what to watch on Netflix, there’s a plethora of projects on the web that help make your life easier. First up is Adioso, a great flight comparison tool for those who want to travel, but don’t have specific dates or destinations. Adioso allows the use of natural language in its search tools. For example, you could search for a flight from Boston to Northern Europe for about a month, and you’ll be given a variety of destinations, dates, Read More >>


Friday Props #86 - Pattern

Props broke its stride last week, but we’re stepping back up to the plate with a plethora of props worthy findings. This weeks props celebrate patterns! Patterns have garnered human attention for some time; for their ability to add intrigue, organize, or even visually obscure objects. First up is a project by Claudio Guglieri and Tim Holman. http://thepatternlibrary.com is a library of gorgeous, repeatable,  patterns, free to download, use, and share. The project is open for submissions as well so hopefully, given time, it will become an extensive resource. Second up this week are some artists using pattern extensively in their Read More >>


Friday Props #85 - Scale

Friday Props 85- Scale Today’s Friday! But what does Friday mean, aside from Friday Props? Friday is a day in a week, in a month, in a year, in a decade, etc. But Friday only has meaning if it has context. Todays Props go out to those who have wondered about, and visualized various scales. From time, to size, to bytes, data has been given context through visual interpretation and, spoiler alert, it’s cool stuff.   Here Is Today is an interactive, visual representation of time created by freelance designer/ illustrator Luke Twyman.  The visualization features a diagram of today Read More >>
