Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman

juliusshulman.jpg Visual Acoustics is a documentary film by Eric Bricker that explores the career of the extraordinary architectural photographer, Julius Shulman. His aesthetics, composition and style create timeless photographs that epitomize modern architecture. Shulman is easily one of my favorite photographers. Unfortunately there isn't a good online gallery of his complete work, you have to do some searching to find most of it. But there is an amazing book set titled Julius Shulman, Modernism Rediscovered that catalogues his personal archives. Gotta get my hands on a copy. The film is being screened in limited cities, one of which isn't NYC, which I don't understand. Shulman himself will be speaking at some of the screenings and if you're lucky enough to be in one of these cities, definitely check it out. It's should be a good one.        

Objectified Poster

objectified_poster.jpg The exceptionally talented Michael C. Place has designed this damn sexy poster for the new Gary Hustwit documentary Objectified. Sized at 27″ x 39″ and lithographed, it features illustrations of objects created by the designers in the film. The poster will be one sale very soon at the Objectified store.        

Objectified

The logo and poster above were designed by Build. Objectified is a feature-length independent documentary about industrial design. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the people who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability. It’s about our relationship to mass-produced objects and, by extension, the people who design them. Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves? Read director Gary Hustwit’s post about the film. Objectified is currently in production and will have its world premiere in early 2009. Featuring Paola Antonelli (Museum of Modern Art, New York) Chris Bangle (BMW Group, Munich) Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (Paris) Andrew Blauvelt (Walker Art Center, Minneapolis) Anthony Dunne (London) Naoto Fukasawa (Tokyo) IDEO (Palo Alto) Jonathan Ive (Apple, California) Hella Jongerius (Rotterdam) Marc Newson (London/Paris) Fiona Raby (London) Dieter Rams (Kronberg, Germany) Karim Rashid (New York) Alice Rawsthorn (International Herald Tribune) Rob Walker (New York Times Magazine) and more participants TBA You can purchase the limited-edition screenprint above that was designed by Build.
