Things have changed

inspirationspam.wordpress.com (you’re visiting now) has moved to www.inspirationspam.com.
After running my blog for 1 and half year on WordPress, I’ve decided to host my blog myself. I’m still using the user-friendly Worpress software  in the background and still using the same template for the looks, but as you will notice little changes have been made, in the new inspirationspam.com website. The type looks different (better ;-), for example ,and I can use more plugins to spice-up the website in the background and on the front end. Well, thats all details, just visit www.inspirationspam.com for the latest posts. See you there!

The Metamorphosis of Osdorp

Love this beautiful animation/film created by the guy’s of +1 Amsterdam. Not completely new techniques and it has a very MTV-ish feel to it, but still … very nicely executed.

The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. PlusOne was asked to create the video.

Bottled water, the new oil #2

I’ve reported about the paradox of bottled water before in the post Bottled water, the new oil.
There is something strange about water in a bottle. You have the feeling to be buying a pure and clean ’source’ product, which is healthier and cleaner than ordinary tap water. But the opposite is the truth. Here’s 2 other examples explaining why bottled water is in fact a environmental disaster. (If watching the video consumes too much time for you, just stick to the info graphic, it basically tells the same story).
This film is from the creators of ‘the story of stuff‘, also a very nice film that’ll make you think about how we produce and consume.

The Story of Bottled Water, was released on March 22, 2010 on World Water Day

CK augmented reality

Here’s an augmented reality web campaign of  Calvin Klein (I think it was in collaboration with GQ magazine). And I’ve tried it and it worked. It’s a little ‘blocky’ and it’s clearly a technology in progress. Watch the demo video and you get the idea. Or try it out you’re self, the website will explain you how. You also gonna need a webcam.
