7. Sony Internet TV. Television Redefined

Sony has launched “Television Redefined”, an integrated advertising campaign designed to build awareness and understanding of IPTVs and build on Sony’s Qriocity streaming service for films, TV and music. Sony teleports viewers through time reminiscing on years past through the spirit of technology. In 1960, when TVs were assumed to be large living room fixtures, Sony opened the door to personal television use. In 1968, Sony helped define the vibrant color TV viewing experience with Trinitron color TVs. Today, more than 40 years later, Sony continues to innovate with access to endless entertainment choices through the internet, 3DTV technology, and seamless search across the entire internet, TV and your DVR with Google TV features, and new designs featuring Gorilla Glass.

Director: Steve Scott
Animation / 3D: Johnny Green 
The Television Redefined campaign was developed at by Grey London.
Narrator is actor Christian Slater. Music is by UK dance act Magnetic Man.

8. Lana Del Ray - Video Games

One of the best and most addictive new voice of 2011, Lana Del Rey will most definitively become a new music icon. Self-proclaimed “gangster Nancy Sinatra” accompanied by minimal arrangement of harp and cinematic strings, the NYC singer-songwriter makes “Video Games” a classic with a so peculiar low-brow video that fast grips our interested, not only by the her unprecedented natural beauty but by the appealing video selection used to make the clip. Listen and be amazed!

Photographer Dylan DeRose’s Cat Fanciers Association series proves that not only do dog owners look like their pets but cat owners do as well.

10. Ed Bing Lee - Delectable

Artist Statement
The Picnic series marked my first foray into the world of fiber art. The series dating from the mid 1980's, juxtaposed selected passages from two of George Seurat's monumental paintings, namely Sunday on the Grande Jatte and Bathers at Asnieres, with contemporary food images selected from advertising art. Some 10 years later, I turned again to the food images, visualizing them three dimensionally. However, the transition from earlier pieces to sculptural forms was not an immediate one, I moved gradually through several series, including framed pieces of historical miniatures, bas-relief of Orchids, the Earthcrust series and the current series, titled Meditations on the Chawan.
My initial attraction to the process of knotting was its immediacy and the fact that little specialized equipment is required, which allows for great latitude in approach as to design, concept and technique. In the Picnic series the work is akin to making a tapestry. The image is created by vertical clove hitch over a fixed "warp", guided by a cartoon. I thought the process of creating an image of multicolor knots is not unlike Seurat's pointillism. In three dimensional or sculptural work, the knotting process is most forgiving and the work can progress in many directions simultaneously. The distinction of warp and filling is interchangeable. Shaping is possible in a variety of ways: by adding or dropping ends, by using different tensions, by using different knots or by using a different material. It is in the Chawan series that I sought to revitalize my work habits by revisiting these possibilities.
In the end, I continually return to art history for visual and conceptual stimulation. For me it is the perfect jumping off point for work in a technique that knows no boundaries.
