Why our brains crave infographics


InfographicAn agency has created an infographic – on our love for infographics.

Neoman Studios has come up with some data related to this fun type of content, as it is highly shared by Internet users.

‘Dancing House’ light installation


Dancing housesAn artist is presenting an interesting project for the Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. 

Klaus Obermaier’s ‘Dancing House’ interactive installation allows you to distort a house while you move.

Visitors can stand in front of the display, where they are invited to move their arms and bodies to change the building’s shape and hear the sound of the wind as they do so. 

As this festival becomes increasingly popular (over half a million visitors in the previous years), it has been named one of Europe’s top 10 light art festivals.
