Everything happening Freestyle...

Freestyle Magazine Urban Jam

What happens if you mix up the art of Freestyle Disc and urban architecture? Loads of pure fun and a completely new view of the city.Hunting for walls, gaps, quarters, handrails and art/monuments is an excintig alternative to the game on green flat grass.  To produce an new Freestyle Magazine Trailer some players of the Berlin Jammers, chief and creative director of the Freestle Magazine Jason McGlade and film producer Stephan Stoll met and went to some architectural and cultural hotspots in the center of Berlin. Special thanks go out to EASTPACK and ASICS for supporting us during that marvelous production!

The Secret Police Adventure

I stumbled across a blog where this guy was sneaking into cool, empty and historical buildings (and they are many) in and around Berlin, making pictures, relaying his experience in a well written prose and then marking the adventure with a Difficulty rating out of ten with information on how to get in, dangers and what to bring. He left no traces apart from dusty footprints and his reports are well written and informative. So I contacted him. Lets just say i contacted him and for legal reasons we leave it at that. Follow this link Make sure to look at part two and three also. Enjoy!

Blu - Big Bang Big Boom

I thought I posted this when it was first released, oh well only a month behind everyone else with this one, but it's so good it shouldn't be missed. This is Blu's latest and possible greatest video - Big Bang Big Boom, an unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life ... and how it could probably end.

Black Cat, White Flower

Die Katze is a moving story about a girl lost in a lonely life in a big city. She transforms into a black cat to be noticed, the girl disappears.  At We ain´t got no flowers you can download the text and watch the corresponding video, take the time, it´s worth it! Stickers of the cat are all over town (I have already seen some in Hamburg several weeks ago). Go find yours and exchange the black cat into a white flower at the flower pop up store at Soto between today 6pm and tomorrow night. There will be 4000 flowers plus story for sale. Beautiful!

Peter Newman: Skystation

peter-newman Skystation’ is an exhibition of works by Peter Newman (b. London, 1969) that explores both our relationship with the sky and with Modernism’s architectural legacy.

Situated outside the entrance to the Hayward Gallery, Skystation (2005-9) is a spaceship-like sculpture that also acts as a piece of public seating. Based on Le Corbusier’s classic LC4 chaise longue, the work invites the viewer to recline, turn their eyes to the heavens and towards tomorrow. In Polychrome Elevations (2009), external staircases around the Hayward Gallery and Queen Elizabeth Hall have been painted red, blue and yellow – primary colours that recall both Piet Mondrian’s geometric paintings and Le Corbusier’s modernist concrete structures. After nightfall, Newman’s video Free at Last (1997) can be seen on the east facade of Royal Festival Hall. In this work, a skydiver calmly practices yoga moves as he freefalls through the blue sky. The four photographs shown in the Hayward Gallery foyer and Concrete, the Hayward’s cafe/bar, are from Newman’s ongoing series Metropoly, and were taken with a fish eye lens while lying in the shadow of major buildings in London, Tokyo, San Francisco, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Like Skystation, these images meditate on the way in which metropolitan architecture frames and shapes the sky above.
