100 Day Performance Piece on Conquering Fear!

Poler2

While working on her Master’s Degree at the School of Visual Arts, New York-based art director Michelle Poler was broadly instructed to do one thing every day for 100 days. Taking her assignment to the next level, Poler created the 100 Days Without Fear project.

Poler is now 84 Days in, has since graduated, and is documenting herself facing all kinds of fears from quitting her job and posing nude for a life drawing class, to walking around New York blindfolded. See more images and some video clips from Poler’s inspiring project below!

iOS Game of the Day: Specimen

Here’s an addictive little iOS game for all you designers out there who feel you have a discerning eye for colour! You can test yourself to see just how accurate those eyeballs of yours really are.

Specimen was created by three New Yorkers; Designer Erica Gorochow, developer Sal Randazzo, and programmer Charlie Whitney. The museum-led incubator known as NEW INC acted as a home base for the project and it sounds like the community there really helped foster Specimen’s development.

The team now has plans to be able to provide users with data about the way they see colour. If you wanna check it out, you can download Specimen for free.

(I’ve found that I do better when I squint at the screen.)
