Parasol Dead

Happy Halloween everyone! The creatives at Parasol Island got together and shot a little zombie flick, Parasol Dead. Inspired by the great Italian D-movies of the ’80s and shot in a style they refer to as “highschool film class”. The film could have been cut down by a minute or so, but they nailed the look.

Coincidentally one of my favourite groups Evil Nine just released their new video for All the Cash featuring El-P, and it’s also a zombie flick. Sadly, the song is great but the video sucks. If Parasol Island had shot a shorter version of Parasol Dead as the video for All the Cash then we woulda had a real winner. Watch both of them after the jump – and I think you’ll agree with me.

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
