Every day is a world of experiences and new ideas. Weltmeyster works to innovating the tourism world and connect matching partners for the good. A website cannot display everything that happens on a day, in a week, a month, a year - but a blog can, as well as social media can do. We get you updated on Weltmeyster projects, tourism innovations, arty videos and campaigns and everything else that we think could be of interest for you. Follow us - and don't miss a moment.
Weltmeyster bei Transa AG, Zürich
Zwei Jahre nach unserem ersten Meeting in Zürich trafen wir vorgestern zum zweiten Mal das Marketing der Transa AG. Weltmeyster hat bis hier zwei Shootings für den Schweizer Outdoor-Riesen in Namibia und Kolumbien eingefädelt. Jetzt geht es um mehr! Neue Projektideen in der Tasche ging's verspätet in den Flieger nach Zürich, die 2 Stunden Meeting waren ein voller Erfolg. Resultate gibt’s dann bald auf www.weltmeyster.de zu bestaunen.
Ice is beautiful. This time-lapse video of ice crystals melting was photographed using cross-polarized light. The video shows the beauty of ice - and hides the message that we need to protect our climate in order to not harm our future generations. Enjoy.
Kuroshio is a dream, a world of wonders, for relaxation and happiness. It is built of two-foot thick glass panels, the tank holds round about two million gallons of water - hosting over 70 species of marine life: e.g. whale sharks, manta rays and more than 75 kinds of coral. The song behind the video is „Please don’t go“ by Barcelona. And - if you want a real meditation time, watch the long version...

Street artist Joe Iurato has been downsizing his normal wooden stencil art into miniature pieces, placed in less notable places in NYC. The series is inspired by moments in Iurato's own life but the pieces have resonance for the public as well. In essence, it is a using a change of scale to provide a whimsical reflection on urban life.
An actual exhibition at Madison Square Park in NYC is held by Iván Navarro: This Land is Your Land - it is a series of three water towers inspired by the artist's experience of immigration.
Each water tower measures about seven feet in diameter and about eight feet tall, allowing the public to easily walk underneath and view the neon lighting and all the reflections in each tower. Each tower displays different words, appearing vertically and rising upwards as if endless.
Navarro's childhood memory from the Pinochet regime in Chile led him to create and name his installation "This Land is Your Land".

This is what Melbourne sets apart - stumbling across laneways that seem to be hidden are bursting with shops, cafes, bars and so many different people talking, eating, drinking, dancing, shopping. Any guidebook on the Australian city will tell you to explore its famous laneways.
The Central Business District of Melbourne is a tightly-packed grid: officially it is named the "Hoddle Grid", after its designer Robert Hoddle. Hoddle's plans and the subsequent expansion of the city included laneways - for horses and carts. Today, it is for your enjoyment.
Project Yosemite is a time-lapse video project set in Yosemite National Park, USA, and shot by Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill. They started in January 2012 after meeting through Vimeo. The idea for the project came to them during their first overnight trip to Half Dome.

Weltmeyster developed the Beam Machine for public consumer activation - the Beam Machine allows interactive multi-channeling on large screens, consumers are invited to making use of the screens thru steering iPads. The product Apolosophy by Apotek just launched something similar thru ultra-sonic sensor advertising, these sensors are able to detect when a train or other transportation system is arriving. As a result model's hair is blown by the wind caused by an arriving train. Translated this means that we could integrate such sensors into your Beam Machine and cause the impression that everything that happens close to the Machine will be seen as real and interactive.

Murad Osmann enjoyed a special journey when travelling the world with his girl-friend who took him to special spots and places. He always took images from her back pointing to the POIs of tourism destinations. You never see her smile, but his image story makes you smile.
