The Wilderness Downtown

Arcade Fire and writer/director Chris Milk teamed up with a huge collection of 2-D/3-D artists, filmmakers and coders to create The Wilderness Downtown. All coded in HTML5, this site is an incredibly rich and beautiful experience.

It’s recommended that, for the best experience, you use Chrome, but seeing as though Google was involved in the project, I can see why. However, I found that Firefox handled the experience a tad better.

Also, watch out Flash, this is proof that you’ve got some real competition.

Die Letterpress!

How cool are these prints! Brooklyn-based artist Stukenborg took 1,147 die and arranged them in various patterns to produce a total of 18 different prints. How jealous am I that he was able to use a big boy press like the Vandercook 32-28?… Very! These wonderful prints are available through Etsy.
