Color Looks To Reinvent Social Interaction With Its Mobile Photo App (And $41 Million In Funding)

$41 million. From Sequoia Capital, Bain Capital, and Silicon Valley Bank. Pre-launch.

That’s how much a brand new startup called Color has to work with. Your eyebrows should already be raised, and here’s something to keep them fixed there: this is the most money Sequoia has ever invested in a pre-launch startup. Or, as the Color team put it, “That’s more than they gave Google.”

Fascinating how the mind wants to see faces in the superimposed postcards. Now we wait for this to be ripped off in print like the vinyl covers.

In Shinchi Maruyama’s photographs, handfuls of water tossed into the air become flowerbeds or perfect cylinders. An amalgam of sculpture, performance, and photography, Mauyama’s work reveals how much beauty can occur in the blink of an eye.

Urban Amber by Han Bing

Urban Amber by Han Bing
In Urban Amber, Han Bing’s visual interventions also raise questions about the paradoxes of desire. Desire for Han Bing is an irreducibly bifurcated modality, that is, it has powerful manifestations and effects that can be both beautiful and poisonous. In his conceptual photography series of single-exposure images, Urban Amber, this paradox takes on a different form. The spectre of glamorous high-rises, those icons of middle-class China’s dreams of home and a better life, are juxtaposed to the rundown, temporary dwellings of the urban poor living in their shadows. These fantasy high-rises appear resplendent and dream-like until you realize that their inverted images are reflected in Beijing’s ubiquitous, industrial-waste and garbage-infested “stinky rivers.” Like amber, these rivers capture the sediment of the times, showing us through a mirror darkly, the underbelly of China’s fantasy of modernity.

Ryan McGinley Photography

Ryan McGinley is the photographer who shot the new Levi’s “Go Forth” Campaign in the US. For those of you who feel Asian advertising photography is too overposed, over-retouched and over-cooked, bookmark his site for reference. Liks the talent featured in his shots, Ryan’s photography is also raw, feral, even naked.

Super heroes take on the past.

Here are some new jobs for Spiderman, Batman and the rest of the spandex-clad do-gooders we’re all so familiar with—World War II. The series is by Agan Harahap. The black and white treatment makes makes it all the more inspired, for it charms the rightbrain, while the logical left side is stunned by the absurdity of it all.
