Music + Literature + Sherlock + Films
There’s been growing unrest about the future of interaction design trends. In the past week alone, I’ve read three separate discussions about the so-called “end of flat design.” This kind of talk is awesome because some of the best aesthetic and interaction design work is done at the dawn…
There’s nothing I find funnier on Sherlock than the fact that Anderson imagines Sherlock as being this suave, sexy, cool bamf who catwalks around kissing girls. When in reality he’s an adorable little gay sweetheart who folds napkins, blows things up by mistake, flails around, and glues pictures of John’s head to things.
In The Sign of Three, Sherlock superimposed John’s face over that of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.
This drawing is a depiction of the ideal proportions of man as based on the aesthetic canon of the architect Vitruvius.
"Vitruvius believed that an architect should focus on three central themes when preparing a design for a building: firmitas (strength), utilitas (functionality), and venustas (beauty).
But the theory of venustas (or beauty) is a very complicated one.
Vitruvius thought that a timeless notion of beauty could be learnt from the ‘truth of nature’; that nature’s designs were based on universal laws of proportion and symmetry.
He believed that the body’s proportions could be used as a model of natural proportional perfection.
He wrote of the way ancient scholars examined many examples of ‘well-shaped men’ and discovered that these bodies shared certain proportions. He showed that the ‘ideal’ human body fitted precisely into both a circle and a square, and he thus illustrated the link that he believed existed between perfect geometric forms and the perfect body.
In this way, the body was seen as a living rulebook, containing the fixed and faultless laws set down by nature.”
Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the…
