OZFARM RESCUED FOOD RECIPIES Concept & Direction
OzHarvest dedicates to collect quality surplus food waste that would otherwise go to waste to feed Australians in need. These simple videos show how you can use "rescued" food to produce delicious recipes with ingredients that otherwise would go to waste. The example below shows how to make arancini balls.
GREENPEACE ICEBERG CAMPAIGN Concept & Direction
This campaign is designed to raise awarness of the fact that the arctic ice is quickly diminishing, and this will at the end affect us all. In a Youtube we see an iceberg collapsing and generating a mini tsunami which is menacingly approaching the boat where a tourist is filming. When it hits the boat the wave splashes into the Youtube page itself, followed by a message explaining that global warming affects you wherever you are.
This highly viral campaign was used by Greenpeace to drive a petition against drilling in the arctic region, which at the end was signed by more than 5 million people.
Portraits from the edge is a collaboration between Scissors and photographer Jon Lewis. This interactive photo journal combines photos from the island nation of Kiribati, audio and narration from Jon Lewis as well as a map of the island shrinking as you scroll down. Kiribati will withing the next 30-60 years become rendered uninhabitble due to rising sea levels and climate change.
The worryball is an interactive sculpture, living partly online, that consists of more than 6000 individual Guatemalan worry dolls, woven into a spherical shape. According to Guatemalan folklore, if you whisper your worries to a worrydoll before going to sleep and place it under your pillow, the worries would have gone away by the morning.
When exhibited, the worryball broadcasts real recorded worries from various participants from around the world through an internal speaker. Participants can share their worries on the worryball website, where they can also experience a virtual version of the sculpture.
THE HUMAN TOUCH PROJECT Art / Interactive
