While most eyes will be on Yankee Stadium in October, earlier this fall Nike’s Bowery Stadium played host to Dark Sun, an exhibition by photographer Ari Marcopoulos. For two weeks, the MKTG-designed space was adorned with black and white pictures of New York’s burgeoning surf scene and wave-shaped sculptures that doubled as skate ramps.

Check out this Cool Hunting post for more details on Marcopoulos and a full write-up on the installation.

Chrome 640

Flight delayed? Good. If you’re taking to the skies on Virgin Atlantic, it’ll give you more time to play around with Google’s new Chromebook. Event Marketer did a nice write up of the program MKTG developed with Google to drive awareness of its soon-to-launch laptop. Lucky airline passengers and guests of New York’s Ace Hotel can get their hands on these sleek PCs from now until the end of September.
