Bobby O’Herlihy created this gorgeous poster for a ‘Kill Bill’ screening:

from last year, but still awesome: 31 innovative, unique, and inspiring example of calendar design.

check out his portfolio – great collection of motion graphics pieces, including the HP ‘hands’ spots, and one of my favorite credits sequences ever, ‘house’. he’s also posted a gorgeous video of ice on his blog and has some beautiful photos on his flickr.

is a collaborative design + architecture project featured in japan a few years ago. there are some great photographs through that link, and I have embedded the site’s video here. it’s quite long, but here is the gist from takram’s site:

On a grid of equilateral triangles, we hung a total of 280 glass wind chimes from the ceiling at varying heights to represent the undulation of a wave. When you walk underneath the wind chime, not only does it ring, but its LED also alights like a firefly. The wind chimes nearer to the ceiling ring in higher tones, and those hung lower in lower tones together offering 10 degrees of tonal expression. And it feels as though you are walking inside a large interactive instrument. Additionally, the wind chimes are networked together, so that the sound and light spreads to adjacent wind chimes like ripples in the water. This network system was based on the idea of “behavior” we observe among certain animals in nature that form groups.
