This is one of the best animation reels I have ever seen. Music by Richard Einhorn, it syncs with the visuals extremely well. All the visuals in the video can also be seen at Toby’s website.

Oh how I love this weird stuff! It seems to be the only thing out there that actually fascinates me, I guess because it’s unpredictable. With that said, here is the second video from one of my favorite weird bands, Fever Ray. Fever Ray is the debut solo album from Karin Dreijer Andersson of the electronic duo The Knife. This new video is directed by Martin de Thurrah and he is doing a good job in keeping the weirdness alive, check out the video after the break… [ Continue Reading ]
Awesome video by Simon and McBess. I couldn’t dig anything up on Simon, but McBess is a French artist who seems to be involved in lots of different art forms, mainly music and illustration. I really like his 2D illustrations, they remind me of looney toons that I used to watch as a kid. They have that retro disney cartoons feels to them. See more of his work after the continuation… [ Continue Reading ]Awesome video by Simon and McBess. I couldn’t dig anyt',description:' Awesome video by Simon and McBess. I couldn’t dig anyt'})">
A conversation with a bioinformatics friend of his, artist Jer Thorp found his inspiration. The conversation was about how to model the spread of the H1N1 disease throughout the world. With that in mind Jer decided to run his own visualization model. Unfortunately he lacked the H1N1 disease data, but what he did have available to him was all the information the social networks [ Continue Reading ]A conversation with a bioinformatics friend of his, artist J',description:' A conversation with a bioinformatics friend of his, artist J'})">
Boys! Girls! Friends! Lovers!
I was eight years old when I went to the Children’s Museum in Los Angeles the first time. While there, I went into a room that had a weird trail-following back-lit wall. The wall was green and had a trace of my body on it, a trace that followed me in hot pink, like a shadow on mescaline, around the room. I was thinking of that experience when I saw this installation of an OLED-powered device. I can imagine that the piece would be absolutely fabulous as a palette for a choreographer or otherwise visually-oriented stage director, but honestly I don’t see the big deal about this particular piece as an objet d’art. It’s a series of sensor-activated lights that follows you around and, as such, is a newer version seemingly of the whole shadow-wall idea. So the folks at rAndom International, in conjunction with technology powerhouse Philips, and frankly I’m a little frightened.
Further evidence that you just can’t beat the artists in the New York City subway system. If you got to see this on your morning commute it would almost make up for the upcoming fare increase…Further evidence that you just can’t beat the artists ',description:' Further evidence that you just can’t beat the artists '})">
This project is called Playing For Change and in my opinion it is simply remarkable! The basic idea is to go around the world and record a few famous covers from completely unknown street artists. One artist starts off the song, the other artist across the world continues the song or overlays his talent over the main track. All done on the street with a laptop and a few microfones, the result is amazing, check out the video after the continuation… [ Continue Reading ]
Amazing footage shot over Cape Canaveral on March 11 of the shuttle taking off into space. The bell in the background makes this video even more epic.

What do you know that’s larger than life?
No, not an elephant. And don’t you even talk to me about sperm whales.
I am thinking of a person — one, with a story as fascinating as the kind of music he makes. And now, allow me to introduce, aka Sci-Fi Channel’s Mr. Mitzvah, aka Peaceman of the Peaceman Foundation, a private nonprofit supporting an array of charities dedicated to fighting hate crimes and treating the victims of post-traumatic stress disorder.
