Internet dating has never been a simple matter. In fact, unless you were willing to pay for expensive dating sites, Craigslist or other similar platforms were the usual route for the relationship-challenged. VisualFriend is a new iPhone app that aims to revolutionize online dating by calling on iPhone to facilitate video dates between users, using Apple’s Facetime functionality. How does it work? From the VisualFriend’s website: “Meet friends, share information, flirt…” Put simply, users can view pictures of other members, chat in interactive chat-rooms, and exchange digits with that special someone they are interested in pursuing via Facetime. So it’s essentially a more selective version of Chatroulette.com, hopefully sans exhibitionists. The service is free, and we are watching closely to see what kind of results dials up among the singles crowd.

What does a modern and contemporary international art juggernaut, such as the Guggenheim, have in common with Youtube, the world’s largest user-generated content powerhouse?

Not much, many would answer.

But that’s about to change! Thanks to a new initiative, Youtube Play, the digital and art world are about to collide. The result, we hope, is a thrilling masterpiece. The museum will select 25 of the best videos, which will be submitted and voted on by people like you and me for an exhibition that will be on display later this year.

In an age where people can gain celebrity status very quickly through Youtube’s equalizing distribution platform, the Guggenheim is seeking to find the next “Justin Bieber” of the art world.

Participants are asked to submit all types of creative work, animation, motion graphics, narrative, non-narrative, or documentary work, music videos and entirely new art forms—creations that challenge the world’s perceptions of what’s possible with video.

Talk about the worlds biggest pool of creative crowd-sourcing. Everyone should definitely keep their eyes open for what’s about to come.

Here at Adrenalina we’re art lovers. We love to experience all the creativity that mankind has to offer. But, we also know it can be hard for small-time artist to get the exposure they need. That’s why we are so excited to highlight a pair of websites we feel gives capitalism a much needed dose of creativity. Not to mention it’s also helping to spread the wealth.

What happens when you take a social-networking based T-shirt store such as Threadless.com and combine it with a user moderated art gallery like Society6.com?

The answer: ArtistShoppe

This new hybrid web site allows artist to post their work on Society6. The artworks are then promoted by their fans, earning featured placement on the site. Not only do you get to purchase the art featured but Threadless.com will also select a few lucky artists from Society6, and will printed their works on T-shirts. Talk about a match made in heaven.

Artists will now have access to a whole new market for their creative inspiration, an exciting fusion between art, social-media, and the free-market. The partnership between these two innovative companies is one that will likely continue to offer opportunity for artists, and consumers alike.

office decor

We stumbled upon these images. Very interesting office decor. Don’t you agree?

Now, some of you may think that these pictures have been enhanced or doctored…but, guess again.

All this is possible through the use of a projector.

But, a word of caution if you want to do this on your own. Be sure to display your images in an appropriate angle…if not, it may just look like a HOT MESS (that last comment was for our girl – Milli).

and just for laughs…

oh dear......

not exactly what anyone would imagined when one reads the caption of top Mexican designer home.

Remember hearing the stories of Cinderella and Snow White when you were a child. Everyone knows how they end or do we?

Take a look at these classic beauties highlighted in a modern day setting as portrayed by Dina Goldstein – photographer extraordinaire.



Dina’s ongoing project was inspired by the observation of three-year-old girls who were developing an interest in Disney’s Fairy tales.

I’d like to see what Goldstein will do with The Little Mermaid. Guess we don’t get to live so happily ever after…Let’s just hope that Disney isn’t watching. We know how protective they can be of their image especially when they are constantly trying to sell us magical dreams.

“Fallen Princess” is set to be completed by October of this year. To see more images visit: http://www.dinagoldstein.com/

The famous art and fashion magazine Visionaire launched its 56th issue in one of the most creative ways. Collaborating with Calvin Klein, the special issue transforms beautiful black and white images into colorful pop art. This cutting edge issue uses special ink and printing technology allowing the imagery to change colors when exposed to sunlight.

It’s great to see how Visionaire is taking print media to the next level.
