Weds 2nd Feb: Samsung - The "Now" Project
Lots of bloggers, taste-makers, cool-hunters and cultural characters in the creative industry are taking part in the "Now Project" curated by Samsung to launch their new Wave II. Each of us involved have been sent the handset to experiment with using the camera and video facility. All the photos are being uploaded to a gallery on Facebook which you can see here. Ive selected some of my faves for an edited glimpse by friends and comrades including Man Like Me, Cassetteplaya, Kit Lee from Styleslicker and Shin from Park'n'Cube. Its a cute visual source to scan through for image inspiration with the added bonus of being an instant resource of blog lists to research. For instance Ive discovered fascinating links to follow up just clicking through now (3 of which Ive included). But the venture is by no means exclusive or cliquey............ anyone can get involved and upload photos to add to the "Now" theme gallery. When you contribute a photo it becomes an entry in a grander scheme of a competition to be displayed in The Design Museum. The snaps with the most "likes" will be awarded with the photographer receiving their own WaveII or chance to show in the exhibit ........... there's no limit on number of images entered so get uploading here.
