WOR{KING} | An Ongoing Photo Series Celebrating A Serious Love for Cars http://10and5.com/2015/04/24/working-an-ongoing-photo-series-celebrating-a-serious-love-for-cars/ http://10and5.com/2015/04/24/working-an-ongoing-photo-series-celebrating-a-serious-love-for-cars/#comments Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:00:19 +0000 http://10and5.com/?p=109016

While travelling the world on photo assignments, Desmond Louw and Antonia Heil capture people and their wheels for their ongoing photo series 'WOR{KING}'. Here's a first look.

Wor{king}

 

Desmond Louw and Antonia Heil (dna photographers) are a husband and wife photography team who spend half of the year in South Africa (where Desmond is from) and the other half of the year in Germany (where Antonia is from). That is, when they aren’t travelling the world shooting on assignment or for personal projects. One such project is WOR{KING}; an ongoing photo series that they add to on every trip.

 

This series is a collection of portraits of people and their beloved ‘wheels’ whether these are attached to a beautiful vintage black cab, a shiny sports car, or a humble bicycle. There is no criteria for the people featured in the series except that they are passionate about their mode of transport and have interesting stories to tell about them. As to how they find their subjects, Antonia says, “We just talk to people we see with cool cars/bikes in the streets. They then usually tell us about others that are mad about their cars…it’s like a snowball effect.” So far, they’ve shot and interviewed around 30 people since February 2014 across South Africa, Germany, Portugal and soon the USA. They can’t stop.

 

What they’ve found is that most people who are passionate about their vehicles are entrepreneurs and creatives who love their jobs and are altogether pretty happy people.

 

By the end of 2015 they’ll know what the project will become – whether a book or an exhibition or something else entirely. Stay updated at dnaphotographers.com/working.

 

In the meantime, Antonia and Desmond have let us release a selection of images in a photo essay for our current Photography Month. Meet some of the gang:

 

Christoph, owner of Kauf dich Glücklich, Berlin, Germany

 

“I bought the NSU RO80 with my business partner to visit our stores. It’s a car for long drives. It’s from 1976 – it was way ahead of its time. It’s atlantic blue. We love driving it. It uses a lot of fuel, it has a Wankel engine. Older men know this car, others wonder what the heck is this.”

 

Wor{king}Wor{king}

 

Katherine, producer at Markenfilm, Hamburg, Germany

 

“In 2007 my Belgian grandmother died and I inherited 10000 Euro. She was a diva. At my wedding she had three different outfits: one for the ceremony, one for the champagne reception and one for the party. She dominated the bathroom. I decided, what I’m going to do with the 10000 Euro doesn’t have to make financial sense – I thought just like my grandmother. I always wanted a London taxi as I’m English. It took three months until I found one in England. I flew over to test-drive it. Look, that’s her, Estelle.”

 

Wor{king}Wor{king}Wor{king}

 

Florian, filmmaker at Schramm Film Koerner & Weber, Berlin, Germany

 

“I love my wife but I take good care of this car. People wave at me and laugh, the Subaru Libero makes people happy – and now this car is starting to get cool. I’ve had it for five years. It’s the combination of all things I need. It can tow a caravan, it’s easy to park in the city, the fuel consumption is moderate, I sit a little higher and it’s nice and narrow. If you pretend it’s cool, it will be cool. Lately this car broke down three times a month, I’m a good ADAC member.”

 

Wor{king}Wor{king}Wor{king}

 

Ali, architect, Cape Town, South Africa

 

Talking about his family… “There were always dozens of people around the dinner table and there was nothing but laughter. I was very spoiled, I was the first grandchild and the first son to the family. My dad spoiled me to death. All the kids would go to bed, I’d be hiding under the table, my dad would give me food and I was listening to all these people around the table, imagining who is saying what… I used to love it. And that’s why I bought him this car. This was his poster girl, this is the car he always wanted.” Ali is now driving the car he once gave to his dad.

 

Wor{king}Wor{king}Wor{king}

 

Willy, cook, Cape Town, South Africa

 

We call him ‘Willyballs’. It’s his Instagram name. Willy drives his mint coloured Ford Escort around Cape Town, putting smiles on people’s faces he is passing. He used to drive a E class Mercedes- Benz and after getting a quote for a service, he spent some time online and found the car he is driving now. “I went to George on the Garden Route and traded my E class with a mechanic. The Ford was in a mint condition.” The 1980 Ford Escort is Willy’s commuter car. “I always loved classic cars. What I love about it, it slows you down a bit. I love that kind of stuff, to fill up water… I taught myself how to fix little things myself.”

 

Wor{king}Wor{king}Wor{king}

 

Jörg, creative director at Schindler & Parent, Meersburg, Germany

 

“When I was in my twenties, everyone wanted a Strich-Acht just like a Levis 501. We were eleven guys that had one – today it’s only me that still has one. I bought it in 1988 for 3000 DM. It has so much detail: the steering wheel, the windows, the sliding roof… I remember in 1990 for the world cup final we drove to Berlin; the girls were sitting on the roof with their legs hanging through the sun roof…Today I only use my Strich-Acht when the sun is out.”

Brett de Vos' video for a collab between Valhalla Festival and musician San Holo starts out relatively tame before escalating into a colourful, dream-like montage.

As one of his first pieces of work through Amsterdam-based Greenshot Films, Brett de Vos directed something between a music video and a commercial for a collaboration involving producer/DJ San Holo and Valhalla, a music festival in the Netherlands.

 

Set to the opening two minutes of San Holo’s track ‘Fly’, the video is a colourful visual treat that starts out pretty tame (just a cat poster captioned “Believe!” and a great big bowl of fruit loops) but soon escalates into a mind-bending and dream-like montage.

Despite a tight schedule, Darling's Jono Hall crafted two silky-smooth commercials for Bidvest Car Rentals using a string of impossible events to show that "Every Minute Counts".

It’s not every day that the tag-line for a campaign actually becomes the mantra under which the ads themselves are made. As Darling‘s Jono Hall can attest to, Bidvest Car Rentals mean it when they say “Every Minute Counts”, because the timeframe they were working with gave him neither a second to spare nor a moment to waste. Especially while he was being “enthusiastically clawed to pieces by 37 very energetic cats” in an audition.

 

Despite the tight schedule, Jono crafted two silky-smooth commercials for Bidvest’s newest division using a string of impossible (and impossibly efficient) events to show that time truly is of the essence. And before you ask, Darling are taking orders for onesie suits…just as soon as they figure out how the sewing machine works.

We can think of a few reasons not to run 90 kms, but in a new branded content series for New Balance by King James Group, four unlikely runners share their personal and inspiring reasons (mid-run) for entering the 2015 Comrades Marathon on the 31st of May.

 

If you’re going to push the limits of human endurance, you’d better have a good reason. #IComrades brings you the stories, reasons and training behind 4 runners preparing to tackle the world’s oldest ultra marathon – The Comrades – proudly sponsored by New Balance.  

 

Shayla Bailes woke up from a two week coma after a car accident having lost the ability to walk or talk. Seven years later she is taking on this monster of a marathon as a celebration of how far she’s come. Kabelo Sekete says he is doing the run for “The look on their faces. Part “is he mad?” and part “I wish I was that mad”.” Never having run competitively or as exercise before last year, he’s looking to shake up his life with one big challenge. Richard Pretorius on the other hand has run the race 9 times, and says that 9 times it has saved his life from bad health. The fourth story is from Phindi Gule who last year missed the finishing gun by 7 seconds. This year she is back to fiercely finish what she started.

Spine | A Collection of Timeless and Sculptural Furniture by Tatiana Etienne http://10and5.com/2015/04/23/spine-a-collection-of-timeless-and-sculptural-furniture-by-tatiana-etienne/ http://10and5.com/2015/04/23/spine-a-collection-of-timeless-and-sculptural-furniture-by-tatiana-etienne/#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:00:23 +0000 http://10and5.com/?p=109306

Gifted designer Tatiana Etienne launches a limited edition collection of timeless and functional furniture inspired by the spine – its importance and significations in different cultures.

Gifted designer Tatiana Etienne has launched a limited edition collection of timeless and sculptural furniture inspired by the spine. Fascinated by this mysterious and hidden axis – its importance and significations in different cultures – Tatiana found inspiration in the pride and elegance of postures in Sierra Leone, then the rest of Africa and its people. She shadowed and expressed those feelings through her beautiful designs.

 

To showcase the project Tatiana collaborated with visual artist Mambu Bayoh to mirror the aesthetic and sensory experience of her pieces, which were proudly produced in South Africa.

 

Growing up surrounded by vibrant colours and painting from her mother’s art gallery in Haiti, Tatiana decided very early on to pursue an artistic career and did so by moving to Paris to study product design. She then travelled and worked in different areas of the design industry in Beirut and Montreal before returning to Paris, where she worked under world-renowned Parisian interior designer Christian Liaigre for many years. She has since made a name for herself with her signature designs, often characterised by simplicity of her lines, the purity of her shapes, stylish finishings, subtle colours and the functionality inherent in each of her pieces which showcase a reflection of culture and craft.

 

Tatiana credits the experience she gained while working with Christian as having helped her define her artistic identity; it gave her a broader knowledge of the industry and a foundation on which to start her own line with a clear vision coupled with a distinct direction. “Christian Liaigre remains for me, one of the most talented designers of our time. Working with him taught me the meaning of simplicity, elegance and to pay the outmost attention to detail,” she says about her mentor.

 

Her creative process doesn’t have a formula but rather, follows the initial spark of inspiration. A process where she catches herself taking notes, sketching or photographing little details in life and nature that strike her, allowing herself be guided by intuition until a shape starts to crystallize into something beautiful. Moving forward, Tatiana’s mission is to create furniture that is a constant source of support and encouragement for a better self, challenging herself to produce pieces that will inscribe themselves in any space and setting.

Featured: Jeanne Fourie’s Luminaries in an Illustrated Deck of Cards http://10and5.com/2015/04/23/featured-jeanne-fouries-luminaries-in-an-illustrated-deck-of-cards/ http://10and5.com/2015/04/23/featured-jeanne-fouries-luminaries-in-an-illustrated-deck-of-cards/#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:00:35 +0000 http://10and5.com/?p=109323

Since January this year Jeanne Fourie has been illustrating a custom set of playing cards based on her personal luminaries at a rate of one card per week, for 52 weeks.

The post Featured: Jeanne Fourie’s Luminaries in an Illustrated Deck of Cards appeared first on Between 10 and 5.

Jeanne Fourie, Luminaries - Jumping Back Slash

Jumping Back Slash 

 

The term ‘luminary’ refers to a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere, and this forms the focus of Jeanne Fourie’s current year-long project. “Our lives and ambitions as creative beings are founded on the accomplishments and ambitions of our luminaries,” she said, introducing the concept at the beginning of January. Since then Jeanne’s Luminaries project has had her illustrating a custom set of playing cards based on her personal luminaries at a rate of one card per week, for 52 weeks.

 

Right from the start she knew that the process would be quite organic, allowing the project and the style of illustration to naturally take on a more defined shape over time. “What surprised me was the overwhelmingly positive response to the project that I received from the get-go, both from friends and the Luminaries themselves, despite the fact that it’s quite obscure and idiosyncratic,” says Jeanne, who makes it a point to interview each person she features. “It’s a wonderful indulgence to get to ask someone who inspires me questions about their background and process. The insights into each person’s life are always surprising. I get to see the human and individualistic side of each interviewee, and find that often my assumptions about them were wrong.”

 

Now three months into the project, she has come to realise that Luminaries is all about inspiration – and it isn’t one-sided. “I’m able to inspire others by showcasing those who inspire me, and in some way, the inspirer becomes the inspired too.”

Jeanne wasn’t always certain that she would pursue creativity as a career, but she has always had artistic inclinations. After matriculating she settled on studying industrial design because the mix of 2D and 3D disciplines like freehand drawing, technical drawing and hands-on prototype making appealed to her. Three years into her studies it was clear that 3D design was not her passion, however during a 6 month interaction design scholarship in Sweden she discovered what was: graphics and visual communication.

 

Upon returning to South Africa Jeanne completed her industrial design degree and switched fields to intern at a small graphic design studio called Inkfish. “Even though I felt I was not formally trained,” she says, “I jumped at the opportunity to learn as much as I could.” This was followed by an in-house graphic design job at a corporate training company where she worked her way up from junior designer to managing designer. “The work was challenging, and not exactly the field that I wanted to be in for the rest of my life, but the industry knowledge and experience that I gained was incredibly valuable to me, and I believe it’s what set me on my way to becoming an independent designer.”

 

In her early days, rather than letting her relatively limited knowledge about illustration and graphic design deter her, Jeanne kept herself inspired through the work of others and used that inspiration as motivation to hone her own skills. “Most of what I know is self-taught and has come from many hours of experimentation, practice and an eagerness to learn,” she says.

Jeanne’s work favours minimalism, iconography and bold colours. She loves experimenting with line, shape, layout and colour to create visually engaging pieces, and many of her posters are inspired by science fiction and dystopian themes. With her Luminaries project comes the challenge of capturing a person’s essence using as minimal a design approach as possible. She’s worked out a formula to capture each subject’s face accurately, but finds it trickier to capture something unique about their personality through the illustration without deviating from the aesthetic style of the card designs.

 

Keeping a system to manage her work flow, she is far less ordered and methodical about the actual design process. “I loosely follow a routine of inspiration harvesting, concept sketching, digital idea generation and final execution,” Jeanne explains – a process that can last anywhere between one day and a few weeks. “There are of course those ‘eureka’ moments too, where a brilliant idea hits you completely spontaneously and out of nowhere. My Luminaries project grew from such an idea, and I felt that for once I needed to see it through.”

Jeanne frequently designs event posters and album art but is actively involved in Cape Town’s music industry in other ways too, having DJ’ed as JNN KPN since 2012. Over the past couple of years she has also been working closely with Glenn Stein on the multilingual South African translation app Aweza, and is currently branching out even further creatively to work on a visual aesthetic and music video for an unreleased local band. “It’s incredibly exciting and fun work,” she says. “It’s the kind of project I’ve always dreamed of being able to do.”

 

As for Luminaries, her focus is to build a greater audience and following to ensure that her future objectives for the project are attainable. Going forward Jeanne has many ideas as to how it might evolve and plans to explore these fully once it reaches its halfway mark, with the aim of reproducing the artworks in various forms and exhibiting the entire collection of Luminaries in 2016.

The Man with the Heavy Leg is the first short film from emerging South African director Natasja Fourie. The 12-minute film was adapted from the short story of the same name by South African author Jan Rabie, which confronts themes of guilt and consequence – themes which Natasja feels are as pertinent today as they were when the story was first written.

 

“The story is about our hesitance to help others and the guilt we suffer subsequently,” says Natasja. “In South Africa we come face to face with the helpless, the needy and the most vulnerable people of society on a day to day basis. We have become numb to this inhumane living and it has created an unhealthy society where everyone, those who have and those who have not, tend to fend for themselves.” Natasja undertook the screenplay adaptation and relished the challenge of bringing the story to screen in an honest, provocative and original way. “The story is typically modernist, but instead of portraying the plight of the alienated post Second World War individual, I have focused on the similarly disaffected individuals in post Apartheid South Africa,” she says.

 

The film was shot on location in Cape Town in collaboration with local production company Groundglass and the South African NFVF with a stelar cast and crew. It’s set for international release later in 2015 and has been accepted into the prestigious Cannes Short Film Corner.

Peter Cardwell-Gardner, otherwise known as @TheFuntastic depending on how much time you spend online, is the creator of Cadence; a game he has developed together with Rodain Joubert that we really, really want to play. Currently in funding phase, the duo recently had the incredible opportunity of showcasing Cadence at SXSW.

 

Somewhat experimental and abstract in nature, Cadence is described as an audio-generative puzzle game about making music and breaking the laws of thermodynamics. But what does that mean exactly?

 

We went straight to the source and asked Peter to let us know. “Cadence is best described as a musical playground of beautiful puzzles. It’s quite an abstract concept, but essentially the game allows anyone with no musical talent to create music by playing a game – a game of logic that uses your problem solving skills to crack puzzles.

 

The puzzles are made of nodes that the player has to connect to each other. When the player finds the right combination, it creates a loop that pulses can flow through freely. But because each node creates a tone when it’s hit by a pulse, you end up playing music that’s unique to your own individual solution. The puzzles can get really tricky, but we’re also excited to add creative modes where player can make their own levels and really get into the musical possibilities of the game.”

 

For Peter, Cadence was less a strike of divine inspiration and rather the result of allowing himself time and space to explore ideas. He says, “I was actually trying to flesh out a far more ambitious game about love and human relationships, but realised it was far too big for me to ever have a hope of finishing it. So instead I started working on smaller sci-fi themed game that was supposed to be about a series of experiments. I then chose one of those “experiments” as the basis for a 48hr game jam (build a game in the space of weekend). That idea clicked really well and now 2 years later is called Cadence.”

 

Turning that idea into a playable finished product mustn’t have been an easy feat. A programmer first, it was important for Peter to create something within his set of skills which explains the game’s very simple shapes. However this hasn’t necessarily been the simple solution, “minimalism can be a very challenging aesthetic to get right – because there is nowhere to hide anything! The look and feel has been through countless revisions as a result. I spent a lot of time studying beautiful motion graphics work on Vimeo to try and figure out how they used colour and space.”

 

One of the biggest challenges Peter admits is keeping yourself happy when you’re working on a project for such a long time. “Despite collaborating with a game designer on the project (Rodain Joubert) there can be long stretches where you don’t get any kind of positive reinforcement and self doubt is always a struggle. Other than that the perennial challenge as an indie developer is always finances. We recently launched and a Kickstarter campaign which sadly didn’t reach its goal. While that was really tough it did teach us that we have a good game and that while we had no illusions getting the word out there would be tough, we were unprepared for just how tough that was. So we’ve gone back to the drawing board and launched our own Noodlestarter campaign as a humourous way to survive.”
