Music Video: De Staat “Witch Doctor”

De Staat2

Outrageous video by Netherlands trio Ton Meijdam, Thom Snels, and Béla Zsigmond (a.k.a. Studio Smack) proves you can do a lot with a little! I feel like maybe it was inspired by this? (Probably not)

Watch the video for De Staat’s high energy track, “Witch Doctor,” followed by the behind-the-scenes making-of video below!

Giant Art Labyrinth


“The Peristal Singum” is a large-scale installation by German artist, Tim Henrik Schneider. The interactive project spans ten different chambers that visitors must walk, climb, and crouch through. Of course, the physical challenges of navigating the space are entirely intentional.

Mimicking the human digestive system, “Peristal Singum” is a response to how quickly (and dismissively) art tends to be consumed. According to Schneider, “the physical experience of art is the only way people will start to self-reflect.” The labyrinthine layout is meant to force people to take their time and really engage with the art that surrounds them.

The installation opens at the Aus Berlin Festival in Tilburg on November 28th. See below for images from the original Berlin show.

Buy Nothing For €199

buy-nothing04buy-nothing02 buy-nothing01buy-nothing07

Last year Amsterdam-based copywriter Pim de Graaff designed a product to remind people to enjoy everything they already have. His product, Nothing, is simply a block of wood. Actually, it’s a block of wood that comes with a rather hefty price tag of €199. A product like this would be infuriating if Pim wasn’t donating all of the proceeds from Nothing to Oxfam, an organization which fights poverty worldwide. Something to consider when buying gifts this holiday season!

There are only 10 of these white Nothings (he sold the black ones last year) so if you want one jump over here: YouNeedNothing.com
