I constantly feel like birds are mocking the human race. They have the ability to do what we have been striving for since the beginning of civilization and they make it so effortless that it’s insulting – spacial freedom. Am I the only one addicted to my remote control helicopter? I mean, all I do is go up and down and back and forth… but the spacial liberation is intoxicating! In these mesmerizing videos by artist Dennis Hlynsky you see that birds in flight contain much more information than meets the eye. The time-lapse video performances show birds creating beautiful patterns as they roam the open air and even display some seemingly intentional creativity. [Read more...]

Midday traffic sorted by color

If it seems like there are a load of silver and white cars on the road, you are completely correct.

Cy Kuckenbaker has just given us a whole new appreciation for this colorful rhythm, using After Effects to sort out cars by color in footage of State Route 163 in San Diego. His editing is convincing, giving the highly trafficked segment of freeway a look of unusually perfect organization. [Read more...]

Wikidrummers 2

Any musician is familiar with that wonderful thing called reverb – those happy echos of sound that bounce back and hit just right when an instrument is played in a confined space. Today, many of these effects are digitally added to our music to simulate different environments, but that’s not the case with this video. Drummer Julien Audigier teamed up with Audio Zero and Wikidrummers to create one drum pattern played in multiple locations and woven together with magical effect. [Read more...]

It features long time Anderson go-to Jason Schwartzman as a fast-talking 1950s racing driver who crashes in a small italian village – just remember it’s not his fault! [Read more...]

Break The Mould

During the 48th annual Brighton Digital Festival 2013, which brings some of the best artists and companies in the world together in the UK, digital creative agency Developing Dreams and artist Emilia Telese showcased this incredible 3D printing project. Housed in a gigantic curvy, willow sculpture, which represents entering a womb, a 3D scanner built by 3Dify (using an Xbox360 and Skanect) scanned participants, then printed them out as 8cm high figures on Ultimaker 3D printers. The scanner was controlled by an 80’s style joystick and rotated around each person at differing heights. The project allowed participants to take part in the 3D printing revolution and was called Break the Mould. Film Director Sarita Frit captured the essence of this awesome installation in the Vimeo documentary after the jump. [Read more...]
