The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian is an upcoming video game created by Team Ico — an enigmatic crew of artist engineers responsible for Shadow of the Colossus and Ico.

If you’re at all familiar with the latter works, you’ll have heard they aren’t games in the traditional sense at all. The label simply can’t encompass what they encompass: the cryptic landscape of the player’s subconscious, the thundering engines of myth, and a thin, frail hope.

The following video is a trailer for The Last Guardian. It’s short, but already the form of the work is visible.

Does it have big, goofy ears? Give it a head rub.

The Space Within A House

Take a moment. Take a look around. Look at the organization and structure and color of the spaces you occupy. Observe the way that vessel is filled by light. Today is the birthday anniversary of the greatest architect in the last 500 years.

“Space is the breath of art.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
