Cole Rise

Posted by Scott








I learned of Cole Rise via his Instagram (@colerise – some great stuff in there too) and was immediately stricken with the beauty or his photography work. But when I saw his full portfolio I was completely blown away. I’d compare his style to maybe a little more processed version of Tim Navis, skewed more towards landscapes. Really beautiful stuff.

Echospace: Some love for Dub

Let’s start from the end of a session where you listened to some good dub techno, okay its stops playing and you’re world just comes back to normal like someone stopped pushing you on the swingset and just walked away.

If you haven’t listened to much Dub Techno, don’t focus on it, do something else and keep it a volume thats quiet but where you can still hear all the pieces echoing off and dim the lights, I promise you’ll find that it sets a tone, nothing generic just a good deep slow thump of life thats whispering for you to enjoy the rest of night or early morning.

Las Vegas Studio

Posted by Scott









Las Vegas Studio: Images from the Archives of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, published by Scheidegger & Spiess, is a collection of images from architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour’s field research in Las Vegas during the early 1970′s. The research was for their own book, the classic Learning from Las Vegas, which explored postmodernism in architecture and urban planning, using Las Vegas as an example.

Beautiful photography and an even better layout; amazing stuff. Stylepark has a great review of the book with some nice shots.

Korallreven + Pariah + Take + Super Cat

This Memoryhouse cover sounds like if they tried to redo the Twin Peaks theme song for a teen audience in 2012 if it didn’t have the beat.

You wanna hear how oceans on other planets sound? then Safehouses by Pariah shares an example that i’d hope would be the true sound for that, the magic is the underlying synth work half way thru.

Shigeto turned me onto this Mono/Poly remix of Take, sounds like what you’d listen to if you were driving to spot to mess some people up, you got an aluminum bat for some reason in the back seat , hell maybe even a bandanna on over your face because you wanted to step up a notch on the accessories tip.

Let all your worries leave your body and just do a slow bounce in your chair to this Super Cat cut.

Webstagram

Posted by Scott


So by now you’re all no doubt familiar with iPhone social photography app Instagram (which Alex recently “>reviewed) and if you’ve spent any time working with it you likely noticed a somewhat important omission: a web component. There is no official web interface for Instagram profiles; a user must explicitly “share” a photo and even then only that single image is viewable. There are no galleries or user profiles which makes it difficult to share your profile outside the spiked, aluminum-lined garden of iPhone land.

But now Japanese developer Joe Mio has create this missing web interface in Webstagram. The Webstagram site allows access to most of Instagram’s viewing features without the need for an iPhone or even Instagram itself. I’m wondering what Instagram think of all this. Webstagram apparently works by accessing the Instagram API, which would lead me to believe this behavior is sanctioned, at least tacitly. I wasn’t about to enter my Instagram user/pass to try out the logged in state of Webstagram, so I’ll leave it to someone a little more brave to figure out whether you can favorite things (apparently you can comment directly from Webstagram).

While useful and convenient, aesthetically, Webstagram disappoints. The Instagram experience is very branded and consistent. On the contrary, Webstagram sports a bare-bones interface that detracts from the overall cohesiveness and flow of browsing a feed. Here’s to hoping the Instagram guys whip up their own proper web interface with a little richer feature set and a cleaner design.

You can access my ISO50 Instagram feed at Webstagram or via @iso50 in the App.

Some Instagrams I’m following:

Cole Rise@colerise
Joyce Su@joycesu
Alex@alexcornell
Beamer@beamercola
Jakub@heatheredpearls

Edit: There is an alternative web interface here, although I am not sure that you can reference a user’s feed directly via a url. Thanks Bramus for the link.
