Somebody

By Miranda July

Have you ever found it impossible to say something, face to face, to someone you know, someone you love? The words just won’t come out? A new messaging service, SOMEBODY, by Miranda July could help. It’s the star of her film for Miu Miu Womens’ Tales, the eighth commission in the acclaimed short-film series by women directors who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.

SOMEBODY takes our endless hunger for communication, technology, avatars and outsourcing, and blends it into what seems to be a surreal near-future — but it’s not. It’s right now. In close collaboration with Miu Miu, July worked with a team of developers to create this radical and complex app; when the movie ends we’re invited to visit somebodyapp.com to send or deliver our first message.

Swiss Artist

Paracosm 

Album by Washed Out

Paracosm: a detailed imaginary world created inside one’s mind. 

The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, and on his second full-length, Paracosm, he takes the dreamlike, otherworldly atmospheres of his music a huge leap further.

Wet Dog

Photography by Sophie Gamand

“Wet Dog” is a series of portraits of dogs photographed during their least favorite activity: bath time. Exposed at a vulnerable and humiliating moment, the soggy doggies wiggle, shake, haul themselves out of the groomer’s soapy grasp. The series celebrates dogs for what they really are: more than just animals. After millennia of close collaboration with humans, dogs have acquired a unique status in our society. Have they also taken some of our expressions?

Sophie believes dogs mirror humans and our society. The unique bond we have develop with them says a lot about our own solitude and social challenges.

97%

Short film directed by Ben Brand

Via an app on his phone, Bert discovers that a 97% lovematch is near. Will he find her before the subway reaches the end of the line?”

I thought it was quite a humorous and interesting take on finding love through digital platform. But it also shows how frivolous modern relationship can be.. One interesting TED talk that examines online dating is by Amy Webb that talks about using algorithms to find love.
