So I am half way through my year-long project to re-filter the same picture everyday in Instagram. It has most probably been some kind of torture for my followers, having to witness yet another pink, swollen, death mask of me appearing in their feed every morning. So to give a little back for their patience, and to give me a bit of much-needed encouragement, I threw together the following video at the half way mark.
The rules are:
Everyday gets the HDR button
Everyday gets one of the filters (never normal)
Next step, making another video of the whole year with a New Years hangover thrown in the mix.
Must have let this one slip. Just found it on my vimeo.
Quick little re-mix video I did live on my ipad.
All this time with my leg elevated has made me a little mental, but rather than get sidetracked on some silly project, I thought I would dig up one from the last time I went like this.

Not that I’m in any shape to be building things at the moment thanks to my broken leg, but I designed the bar above with a view to watching someone else build it.
A fair amount was changed by my overskilled labourer, Seth Taylor, but he has to be given something for his hard work. Hope that doesn’t come across bad.
Toast festival is on the 1st and 2nd of June at Red Gallery on Rivington st, London.
Come along for some great coffee from the bar and then take in the rest of the show.
Tasting Class matt for DunneFrankowski’s cuppings
At DunneFrankowski they offer a tasting class that guides participants through the science of taste and the components of flavour that can be found in coffee.
It’s a great course, that I have done myself, and introduces the murky and poorly titled world of Cupping to the consumer.
Cupping is just drinking coffee with a spoon from a cup, nothing weirder than that. It is very useful for evaluating coffee and tea as the coffee grounds are not filtered, hot water is simply poured over a consistent dose of coffee. This is where the spoon comes in, cuppers can share the cup hygienically as they rinse the spoon, and the cup is kept firmly on the table to prevent agitation from changing the extraction.
The above image is a place-matt that I designed to help the students understand the process and give them a simple way to evaluate what it is that they are tasting.
This design will be taken further, but it’s secret right now so check back later for the next installation.
Coffee bar made of pallets, in C4D 3D design
Sadly because of my broken leg and some budgetary concerns, I was not able to build the bar prototype I have been secretly working away on. So as a half measure to keep people happy I threw this together in 10 mins to help the client make it themselves in my absence.
Janne Cass leaves DunneFrankowski for The Barn, Berlin
Janne, DunneFrankowski’s first ever hire, left a week ago to start a new life at The Barn, Berlin.
I made this as a scary leaving present for her.
That is all.
