“The human billboard movement is nothing new… But a Japanese PR agency called Absolute Territory PR (絶対領域広告) has put their own spin on things (taking the movement “from weird to icky“), enlisting young girls to wear temporary tattoo ads on their thighs. The service is relatively new – it launched in July 2012 and boasted 1300 walking billboards by November. Becoming a member is relatively simple: as long as you’re a female over 18 with more than 20 connections on a SNS (twitter, mixi, instagram, etc.) you can join. To get paid you have to wear a temporary tattoo for 8 hours or more and post pictures of it to your SNS in at least 2 different places. Rates start at 1000 yen per day and can go as high as 10,000 yen, depending on how many pictures you take.”

A few weeks ago the NY office had a meet. greet and review session with students from the Media Arts and Design Faculty, a University in Hasselt, Limburg, Belgium. During their visit, we talked them through some of our latest projects, gave advice on the industry and also viewed some of their own work - which was truly creative. It’s always good to meet new blood in addition to sharing our knowledge!

Brent Holloman - The Vie Silhouette Project, 2012 - Ongoing
“With the arrival of our first baby girl there is one thing I hear all the time… “They grow up so fast.” So I decided to start a project where I can mark the stages of her growth by doing a silhouette of her each week for her first year (or as long as I can keep it going)”
I am only a couple weeks into it and I can already see the changes taking place.
