Kickstarter: The Light Phone by Light

light1

Founded by visual artist Joe Hollier and developer Kaiwei Tang, Light aspires to provide you with “your phone away from phone”: a device that connects with your existing cellphone, but only makes phone calls, and is the size of a credit card. It’s a fantastic concept, not to mention a beautifully minimalist design. Learn more about The Light Phone and Light’s Kickstarter below!

    Looks like a cleaner version of a phone that was released a number of years ago called John’s Phone.

    • Kimi

      Did John’s Phone ever catch on?

      • it looks kinda clunky

      • Kimi

        Poor John

        I highly doubt it. I had a family member buy me one. It was really great for a while but it’s hard to keep up with everything now with only call display and incoming/outgoing calls.

  • I dig the idea aswell as music in this video :)

    • Kimi

      Yeah. They’ve done a great job all around, I think.

  • i really wait a light phone! looks so amazing and unknown.

    You mean a 1995 cell phone but lightweight? Yes. Please.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
