Five for Saturday

Five for Friday went a bit Pete Tong this week so now its Five for Saturday. Here are five of the things that made my week:

London-based graphic designer Toby Evans on design and his love of the Mark I Volkswagen Golf

Caterpillar’s wonderful video showing its machinery playing Jenga is like something stolen straight from my childhood dreams and a credit to the drivers operating the vehicles

I think it says a lot about the state of technology hardware at the moment and in particular Google Glass that this year’s Google I|O conference will focus on design – industrial design and visual design rather than engineering is part of the zeitgeist and I suspect that the attendees will be going on as much of a learning journey as the host. To promote the conference Google put this video together. Whilst I am a skeptic of Google Glass in its current form, I think that the approach to the product design was very interesting.

DJ Greg Wilson, who is a personal hero of mine, posted this mix from last year on Soundcloud. As usual it has a superb selection of edits on board

B-Classic is a Belgian festival trying to make classical music relevant by commissioning video directors to produce a contemporary accompaniment. The video features Korean dance team Waveya providing their interpretation of Dvořák – Symphony No. 9 Allegro con fuoco.

There is a good video providing background on how they came to put Dvořák to twerking Korean girls in hot pants (not that I am complaining).
