Please complete the sentence: I Am...



Just how would you complete the sentence..I am? A simple question? Think again. Because how you answer it shows us what you appreciate, how you define yourself or what your story is. In this short video, Steven Nicholas Smith asked strangers in Philadelphia to finish that sentence. "I Am ___."



Through these responses, the film-maker was able to create a montage of answers and then delve deeper into a select few and allow them to explore their answers even… Continue

How can you not call this new Kia commercial entertaining? Just goes to show you can't go wrong with badass hamsters singing Black Sheep's The Choice is Yours.

As the lucky Soul-driving hamsters rap to, “You can go with this, or you can go with that," they hilariously compare their phat ride to toasters, cardboard boxes and washing… Continue

I don't think I'd ever leave my house if I lived in something like this! The Beaver Street Reprise in San Francisco, California is a modern home consisting of four stories that all have their own distinct roles - park-live-work-play.

Cool 3D Projection Mapping by Samsung



Though we've now seen our fair share of projection mapping, it's one trend that I still can't get enough of. Samsung just recently threw up this installation on an old Amsterdam building. For three nights, they gave those who passed by a free show to promote their new range of 3D LED TVs. Love how they really made use of the building and how they neatly tied up the story with their 3D TV in the end.
