The Engineering Amazing

  • The Engineering Amazing campaign was developed at Team One USA.
    Lexus is continuing the Engineering Amazing advertising campaign with “Light”, a television commercial featuring the automotive brand’s digital crash test model technology. The scene opens in a dark room. A human form constructed of 119 points of light moves through space as if it is riding in an invisible vehicle. Suddenly, a more vibrant, detailed human form, with bones, muscles and organs constructed from 2,000,000 points of light, comes in to view, traveling toward the first figure. The two forms collide. Viewed in slow motion, we see that there is no comparison between an ordinary crash test dummy and a Lexus crash test genius in the throes of an accident. The spot illustrates how the Lexus digital crash test model gives the automaker an exponential leap in understanding how the human body responds to a collision, and the ability to design industry-leading safety technology.

The commercial titled Engineering Amazing, 8 was done by Team One advertising agency for Lexus (for Lexus) in United States. It was released in the September 2011.

They make us happy, proud and sad, we know their names and life stories. They break the records and set the new ones, we follow their every move. We cherish any chance to get close to them, they persuade us to buy the famous brands, we listen to them, they are rich and glamourous. We want to be like them.

Vanessa Lobo

Vanessa Lobo describes her mind as, “an underground, aquatic, interstellar, human and alien garden,” which may help to explain her apparent fascination with the distorted humans she creates that seem to often be trapped underwater or in the cosmos. This Brazilian designer and digital artist says, “Each detail, texture, movement, has a reason, and together they create a conscious concept of the image that doesn’t need to be understood or explained.” See more of her work on her website.

Lifes of grass

Soil, wheat seeds, structure from recycled metal, fabric.
Exhibited at the 2010 Crossing the Line FIAF Festival at Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn, NY and at the French Institute Alliance Fran├žaise FGH Theater hall, NY and at Brooklyn Utopias: Farm City at The Old Stone House Gallery, Brooklyn, NY
In Egyptian Mythology, Osiris is the God of renewal, the one who eternally comes back to life. He is also the personification of the fertile land and the natural cycles: death and rebirth, dryness and fertility. The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it's origin, it's transport, has an impact on us beyond it's taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world - of abundance, of famine - and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.
