QT Sydney

'Eclectic, quirky, beguiling' and 'surprising' are just a few words that naturally come to mind when staying at Sydney's QT Hotel - as Yarubar did this Summer. The property, which melds two of Sydney’s grandest and most prominent historical buildings - the State Theatre and Gowings on Market & George Streets - is a unique mix of pure theatrics, grandeur and cutting edge technology. With its sumptuous, dramatic interiors - featuring much original architecture - bespoke furniture and wonderful collection of art, QT delivers a highly unique experience. More than this, the hotel's staff are possibly the most charming we've met to date - especially the bewigged, red haired greeters who describe themselves as 'Directors of Chaos'. How very QT. With lifts that talk to you (‘Hasta la vista baby' on exiting) and other highly unexpected treats, the final word we'd use for QT Sydney is 'charming'.

MOTT 32 by Joyce Wang

The recently opened MOTT 32 in the basement of the Standard Chartered Bank landmark in Central, Hong Kong, has been earning rave reviews, as much for its modern Cantonese food as its dramatic interiors. Designer Joyce Wang who created the space - fresh off the success of her much-lauded work at AMMO at the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre - takes diners through a fantastical tale of an immigrant’s journey, complete with family heirlooms and a history uncovered in the secret lair of a bank vault.

Jeffrey Brodsky I’ll be strong

Jeffrey Brodsky I'll Be Strong music video by Universal Everything is all about motivation, struggling and surviving. A relentless storm of pop-digital  weather bombards a group of animals, who are relentlessly dashing towards their goal - a distant volcano emitting the hook of the song. The story is represented only through the visualisation of the invisible wind, revealing the animals with a graphic intensity. The video was made using procedural 3D software to simulate and visualise the physics of a hurricane of wind and debris bombarding the animals. Only this visualisation of invisible wind moving through space reveals the story unfolding.
