Month: December 2013

All of us at Eye Forward wish you a Happy Magical Holiday Season!

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?” ~ Dr. Seuss

See you in 2014!

Perry Ogden – Peace Wall

From Perry’s Blog:

‘ On a recce in Belfast and stopped to take a picture of this so called “Peace Wall” which divides the Catholic/Nationalist Falls area from Protestant/Unionist Shankhill. According to Wikipedia there are now 48 Peace Walls, though friends tell me there are many more – and more than at any time during the Troubles. I will have to investigate. ”

James Turrell @ LACMA

If you have not seen this museum show you must go – one of the best shows ever anywhere. One of the three museum shows for Turrell this year, one at the Guggenheim in NY, one at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the most extensive one, the retrospective, lucky for us, here in Los Angeles. The show is on till April 6, 2014. There is a full range of his work from the simple early pieces, to the holograms and finally the amazing light rooms. To read more about the show and details look here.

I know you have always wondered what happens when you let 100 cats loose in an IKEA store…..

IKEA Wembley Cats from Feh Tarty on Vimeo.

Well the London office of MOTHER an amazing adverting agency wondered and so they created this spot as their first piece of work for their new client IKEA and it is fantastic. I know that I have a bit of a ” cat lover ” reputation but I think most people not just cat lovers will appreciate the originality and genius of this crazy concept. This is adverting at it’s best. A simple idea and so well done! Took some courage too I am sure to talk the client into it and pull it off! To see the behind the scenes look here.

Sam Jones – Off Camera – the Will Forte interview….

This is a great one:

” Anyone reading Wikipedia’s entry on Will Forte couldn’t be blamed for suspecting it’s the prank of a fellow jokester. High school class president and football player? College history major? Promising financial broker? Seriously? Entries for his more recent past (That ‘70s Show writer, The Groundlings, Saturday Night Live) seem more like the real Will Forte – until you watch his subtly astounding turn in Nebraska. ”

Check it out in motion here.
