A few things to kick off your weekend in Chicago! And a few projects that, like Marooned, are about exploring who human beings are and how we compose such a diverse and intricate fabric of stories and ideas...
The first is called Humanae. The project is a "chromatic inventory" that reflects our different colors by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme. Each portrait is of a person with the background in the exact Pantone® tone that is determined by a sample of pixels from the portrait. Such a great idea!
The second is called Just Here's Fine. A photographer takes a look at the lives of London cabbies. It's really interesting and so fun to see how different each individual cab-driver is. I always love how you can tell a little bit about a cab driver by the content of their car. Sometimes I try to imagine what my cab driver's life is like... then I usually ask and the trip ends up feeling too short! :)
And finally... a cool way to explore the city this weekend. I think I'm going to try this! If you try it, shoot me an email let me know how it goes.
Have a great weekend! Perhaps we'll run into each other on our adventures. :)
