What does Ewan McGregor know about The Bauhaus? Apparently enough to narrate a mini-series of six videos that give a brief history of some major design movements, out out by The Open University.

You can view all six videos from Gothic Revival to Postmodernism on youtube by clicking here. The videos are concise, the animation clean. They distill concepts a bit heavily and leave out significant elements (like distilling Modernism to a quote from Mies van der Rohe?) but for about two minutes of learning, it’s pretty excellent. All six segments are definitely worth the time to watch. Very cool stuff.

'Little Big Details' or, 'Oh my god we're back again'

So today, three different people asked me if I was still keeping up with my blog.

the answer was obvious. But why? I’m not certain. so here it goes again. Hopefully back to the fervent regularity that it once had. we shall see.

So for the moment, a source of inspiration:

Little Big Ideas.

A source of inspiration, looking at the details that make up the way users interact with programs. Direct impact to photography, art, and other things that intrigue me? Not on the surface. but deep down, some of this stuff changes the way we think in the subtlest ways. Worth browsing through with an open mind.
