A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

Beautiful Iceland: via Sigur Ros's Heima

Sigur Ros's documentary Heima looks amazing. As many of you know, I'm not a big movie buff, but if the production quality in this trailer is any indication, the DVD release on November 5th can't come soon enough. The film produced a year ago at the end of their world tour. The group returned to their homeland, Iceland, and played a series of free and unannounced concerts. The film portrays Iceland almost like another planet. It is stunning. I'm gonna have to check to see if the movie's playing around here.

I'm still surprised you don't watch more movies! They're art. Come on. They're visual. They have music. Get with the program, Barry.

Seriously, Sigur Ros is an amazing group. Great to write to. Very ambient--they SOUND like they're from Iceland and not Australia!

It's funny that as much as I love their music, I don't yet own any of their albums. This film looks absolutely incredible. Do you know if it's going to be widely released in theaters? Surely they can't just limit something this beautiful to the occasional film festival and then DVD.
