Some gained references from 2011

Looking back at some of my gained references, 2011 was a brilliant year.

Wim Wenders showed how 3D can be used to create a theatrical space with his film Pina. Nicolas Winding Refn charmed the creative industry with his arty gangster thriller Drive and BFI restored Herbert Pontings stunning hundred year old footage from Captain Scotts expedition to the Antarctic.

Lavin made fashion fun with its Fall/Winter 2011/2012 advert. Stella Artois mastered its film-noir references with the Black Diamond trailer while Studio Output showed us the potential of projection mapping with their work for Playstation.

Somerset House paid tribute to Hungarian photography with their Eyewitness: Hungarian photography in the 20th Century exhibition, Greyson Perry revived artifacts at the British Museum and Dulwich Picture Gallery provided an overview of Norman Rockwell‘s career.

Samantha Casolari boomed my obsession of dreamy photography, Garmonique stunned me with his minimal depictions of landscapes and Jeff Hahn impressed me with his breath of expression.

Jon Hopkins held a mind-blowing gig at XOYO, Twin
Shadow refreshed the tunes of the 80s and Jamie xx remixed Gill Scott-Heron’s ‘I’m New Here’ album.

The Huh. blog kept me up to speed with music and emerging photography, Kim-Jong-il continued to inspire the blogosphere and Minimalissimo’s coverage of Zara’s Spring 2011 collection got me into colour blocking.

So… what’s next?
