1. It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.

    Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!

    The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.

    Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!

  2. When Mothercare approached Daniel Weil for help with a new feeding range, he proposed an unusual solution. In a category dominated by engineering advances, Weil began the project with a study of parenting across the last four decades to find a human context. His research led to discovery, invention and ultimately a new baby bottle design.

  3. Two Minutes with TGD is a series of brief interviews that expands on themes already explored by The Great Discontent: creativity, risk, and what connects us. The series is a TGD special project, introducing video content in addition to our regularly published written interviews.

    Over the course of October 10–12, 2012, we set up a small filming station to record two-minute interviews with Brooklyn Beta conference attendees at The Invisible Dog Art Center. At the conclusion of the three-day event, we had interviewed 138 people and recorded over 6 hours of footage! Each person was asked the same three questions: Are you creatively satisfied?, What would you say to your 18-year-old self?, and What would you say to your future self?
