Nowness has this great series on architect’s and artist’s homes and spaces called “In Residence” that always seems to draw me in when I scope out the site. Some of the pieces grab my attention more than others and this one features an eerie little piece on a utopian home designed by Mexican architect Luis Barragán. I get some Kubrick(ian) vibes from this one and I love the touches of shadows of figures hinted at in some of the shots….oh and it’s a pretty rad space too.
I’m really digging this years Simple Session event poster & art direction. Well done. Simple is coming up soon, stay posted on the site for info. Click below for the TV spot that’s running over there as well.
On a related note, check out the recent By The Numbers Q&A we did with Risto, who is behind the Simple art.

In case you have difficulty browsing iPhone apps or are just too lazy to do so, the folks at Gear Patrol called out 7 photo based apps that could come in handy in THIS feature. I learned about some new ones myself. Really doe, that illustration above is sweet.
Beef up your app quiver young iPhonographer.
Printstagram (AKA Print Studio) is a service that allows you to do all kinds of awesome shit with your Instagram photos very easily. How do I know? Because I myself used them to make a poster like the one above (that’s not me though) and it was a fun, easy and enjoyable experience. I strongly suggest checking them out if you wish to do more with the potentially awesome pics on your Instagram account.
Hit up Printstagram and see what they have to offer. Tell ’em Noons sent ya. J/K, don’t tell ’em that.
This video cleverly pairs up the first and final frames of numerous films side by side. I haven’t seen the overwhelming majority of the movies featured in this, but it was still an interesting thing to watch through.
From Jacob Swinney:
What can we learn by examining only the first and final shot of a film? This video plays the opening and closing shots of 55 films side-by-side. Some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while others are vastly different–both serving a purpose in communicating various themes. Some show progress, some show decline, and some are simply impactful images used to begin and end a film.
