This Jaw Dropping Music Video Captures Our Tiny Planet From a Quadrotor

Earlier this week I shared Jonas Ginter’s fantastic work with tiny planets in motion. I might have even said something like “you haven’t seen one in motion before.” Well, like so many things, when one person solves a problem, other people solve it at the same time too (I’m talking about you Alexander Graham Bell!). Case in point, this freaking amazing music video for Booka Shade’s track Crossing Borders. The film was shot from a quadrotor floating over different locations around California. The result is a major treat for the eyes. Watch this one in HD. [Read more...]

The unimaginably expensive prices works of art can go for these days may leave those who pay attention to the art market gratified, or depressed. The most expensive painting in the world right now is Three Studies of Lucian Freud, (above) which was purchased for an incredible 142.4 million dollars at a New York Sotheby’s auction this past November.

If you were one of the lucky ones who was in attendance at Coachella 2013, then undoubtedly you got to experience the amazing Helix Poeticus AKA Coachella Snail. With Coachella 2014 just around the corner- literally this weekend- we can’t wait to see what the makers of Helix Poeticus, Poetic Kinetics, will be bringing this year. The creative team, co-founded by Patrick Shearn and Cynthia Washburn, is based in LA, but they have brought their large scale kinetic sculptures to festivals all over the US and even to Beijing for the Olympic Games in 2008. The Coachella Snail arrived last year completely bare, but with the help of graffiti duo Herakut, Helix Poeticus got styled for the event with designs and the memorable quote, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” [Read more...]

For Liv Buranday, perhaps the best part of waking up is Folgers all over her tabletop. Initially inspired by her father’s love of his morning cup of joe, the Philippines-based artist sculpts dark-roasted coffee grounds into charming, textured characters using toothpicks and glue. Complementing her silhouettes with objects such as branches and leaves, Buranday composes her illustrations almost completely out of ordinary organic materials–all while adding a strong dose of whimsy along the way.

Tiny Planet in Motion: A 360 Degree Video Made With 6 GoPro Cameras

You’ve seen tiny planets all over the internet (you might have even made one with Google Photosphere), but you haven’t seen one in motion before. That’s because of one problem in creating these little worlds: you need to see in all directions at once. Happily, German photo journalist Jonas Ginter recently employed the smart but obvious solution: use multiple cameras and stitch the resulting videos together. His resulting test video is simply awesome, featuring a small planet below the wheels of his bicycle, car and feet, slowly rolling away as the distorted landscape passes by. [Read more...]

As human houses have gotten more modern and sleek, why is that most birdhouses are still so old fashioned? This bird feeder in Norway defies the traditional style, as it was modeled to look like a hip cafe. Photographer Magne Klann and model maker Lars Autrtade combined forces to create this project which they call Piipshow, featuring a constant live stream of a birdie bar that occasionally gets robbed by some handsome squirrels. It’s hard to imagine anything cuter than the scenes in this avian restaurant. [Read more...]
