Nobumichi Asai Applies Electronic Make-Up Using Real-time Face Tracking
Like something straight out of a sci-fi film, CGI expert Nobumichi Asai and a team of creative developers and directors developed ‘Omote’, a real-time face tracking & projection installation. Using state-of-the-art technology, the visual mapping concept transforms a model’s face into mesmerizing patterns with an electronic equivalent of make-up. In the initial stages of the process, a 3D laser scans and creates a three dimensional facial replica with pin-point accuracy, complete with detailed surfaces and contours. A selection of animated graphics are then layered on the face and manipulated by the artist in real-time. Later this august, ‘Omote’ will be showcased in front of a live audience in Japan, where visitors can experience the concept first hand.

The Knife Break Up
The Knife will close out their European tour in support of their great 2013 record Shaking the Habitual in November, and they’ve just announced that they plan to call it quits after that run. “We don’t have any obligations to continue,” said Karin Dreijer, “it should only and always be for fun.” We’re going to call in a bereavement day at work so we can revisit the band’s entire catalog. Start with the video for “A Tooth for an Eye,” below, and/or figure out how you can make one of the band’s final shows, also listed below.
Liam Goslett Takes Lotuff Around the World
There’s something about leather. Perhaps it’s its versatility, timelessness, or the way it gains character after years of use and abuse. Whatever it is, leather has always been linked to adventure and the outdoors.This summer, photographer and wanderer Liam Goslett hits the road with Lotuff’s vegetable-tanned trunk duffle, looking for new thrills, and of course, the odd photography subject. His expansive journey took him along backroads and fields in France and Spain; through beaches, deserts and the famed spice markets of Morocco, and beyond. From candid, humorous snaps of goats relaxing among tree foliage, to boat rides, bike rides and hikes across pastures and city streets, Liam’s duffle and camera were right by his side. Learn more about his travels here and shop Lotuff here.
