“Under the most strict security, Smog were commissioned to produce the commercial that announced the release of Chile’s new banknotes. The idea was to travel through various landscapes of Chile, going in from one side of the bill and coming out through the other. So, after passing by Gabriela Mistral receiving the Nobel award, we fly over Miscanti lake in the north end of the country. Then we move over to the Virgen falls, on the other end and finally we come out of the bill while in La Campana National Park. We made 3D models of every place, and ran endless tests to approach the engraving-style of the art in the bill, while at the same time trying that it would not vibrate on the screen… Special attention was set on the music. It had to be “beautiful, contemporary and Chilean” and composed by a well-known Chilean musician. Pedro Piedra’s name came up almost instantly.” Created by Smog

Minga – Chile

Posted by rod - 22.07.2010

Now this is an interesting tradition from Chile called Minga. Especially the island of Chiloe is famous for involving the whole community to literally move a house. To move a house the complete structure has to be somehow lifted onto tree trunks which  will serve as rollers pulled by oxen. Some houses even have to be carried over the sea. There is also a wine called La Minga which is making use of this tradition. Images via tectonicablog

Inca Pisco bottle collection

Posted by rod - 16.03.2010

I absolutely love these bottle. How cool. Pisco (from Quechua: pisqu, little bird) is a South American liquor distilled from grapes. Developed by Spanish settlers in the sixteenth century, it takes its name from the conical pottery in which it was originally aged, which was also the name of one of the sites where it was produced: Pisco, in the Viceroyalty of Peru. The first vineyards were planted in the coastal valleys in the Viceroyalty. The drink is a widely consumed spirit in the nations of Bolivia, Chile and Peru. If you love these bottle you may like the packaging design for Inca gold pisco. Images via minialkohol, natureperu and natureperu

Keep the flame burning – 2010 Olympics

Posted by rod - 22.02.2010

Thanks to Nicolas from Taxi for getting in touch. Montreal’s Bombardier Inc. is keeping the Olympic flame burning across the country and throughout the Winter Games with help from a 45-second TV ad from Taxi.

The spot starts in a remote corner of Chile where an old man attempts to light his pipe, but the wind prevents him from doing so. Locals find themselves trying to light candles, and stay warm by a fire but the strong winds keep extinguishing the flames.

Finally, a family sitting around the dinner table watches as the Olympic Torch travels through a blowing snow storm, yet it’s still lit. The old man is still trying to light his pipe.   “That’s what you need,” says his wife, referring to the torch.

Bombardier designed the Olympic torch to be weatherproof, which is just as well given that it traveled through rain, sleet and snow along its 45,000 km, 106-day journey.

“This story nicely demonstrates Bombardier‘s ingenuity,” said Stéphane Charier, vice-president, executive creative director of Taxi, in a release. “To design and build a torch that resists Canadian weather is no small feat.”

Prototypes of the torch were tested in a weather simulation chamber before the final design. Bombardier manufactured 12,000 torches–one for each torchbearer.

Inspired by the contours of Canada‘s winter landscape, the design of the 2010 Olympic Torch symbolizes the tracks created in snow and ice by winter sports.
