This week I attended  the opening day of 29 Rooms NYC. This was my first time attending this event.

29 Rooms is a yearly initiative powered by Refinery 29 -An American digital and entertainment company that was established in 2005.  29 Rooms is a space that brings incredibly, wow-factor, creative ideas to life with interactive installations.  29 spectacular artists, creatives, and visionaries translate their thoughts and dreams into physical rooms.

Rooted in storytelling and self-expression I was in my element as I meandered from one installation to another.  The mission statement directly what our mission statement is here at Collideascopes.  We believe that the two core elements that make up a strong and captivating brand is Storytelling and Design.  Opening day, I stepped into a realm of abundant thinking and imaginative concepts. Call- to- actions such as Challenging the Status Quo, Expanding our reality, and thinking outside the box aligns to our mission here at Collideascopes.

Grafitti Vibes makes is the perfect touch for the location of this year’s 29 Rooms -In the heart of Brooklyn, NY.  This room gave me a nostalgic feeling of how it was back in the 90’s as I gazed at the paint covered sheets  in this room

Artist Victor Nunes’ From Nothing to Something Illustrations

By Lady London 10 April 2014

They say you can find beauty in the simplest of things.

Artist Victor Nunes combines ordinary objects with simple illustrations to transform them into playful pictures of scenes, faces, animals, you name it!

His images invite us to look at the world in a different light and find creative images in our surroundings -the main ingredient of Creativity.

Nunes’ art is a great example of pareidolia, which is our propensity to give meaning to random objects  It’s the reason why we associate a smiley face with a human face and why some of Nunes’ pieces of popcorn or bread resemble faces to us.
