Stormscapes 2: An Amazing Severe Weather Time Lapse by Nicolaus Wegner weather timelapse clouds

Filmed last month by Nicolaus Wegner in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado, Stormscapes 2 is a gorgeous timelapse of severe weather events. Wegner deftly captured lightning strikes, rainbow formations, tornadic activity, and rolling thunderstorms in a way I’ve never seen before. Well worth a watch. (via Jason Sondhi)

Published today from Harper Design, Shake Puppies is the latest jowl-flapping canine photo book from Portland-based pet and wildlife photographer Carli Davidson. The dangerously adorable collection of images is a follow-up to her 2013 book Shake that similarly featured high-speed photos of adult dogs caught mid-shake as their ears, lips, fur and drool flies in every direction.

Davidson began photographing animals while on staff at the Oregon Zoo, a passion that eventually led to a career shooting portraits of exotic animals, pets with disabilities, and a plethora of cats and dogs. Shake Puppies is available now through Amazon.

When he was 13 years old, New York-based photographer Thomas Prior won a drawing contest and used the money to buy a Pentax K1000 camera. By the age of 20, while still attending SVA, he began assisting on commercial shoots while developing his own direct, almost simplistic approach to photography. Prior relies almost completely on natural lighting and a brilliant eye to capture uncanny images in unexpected places. Gathered here is a selection of photos from the past few years, you can see more on his frequently updated Tumblr, and a recently created Instagram account. (via All of this Is Rocket Science)

Sponsor // SCI-Arc Now Accepting Applications for Master of Architecture Program

SCI-Arc’s elective vertical studios pair small groups of upper-level, graduate, and undergraduate students with elite faculty and international architects. In these studios, students develop projects which focus on particular interests. They have the opportunity to work with architects visiting the school, and gain insight into a broad range of issues concerning approaches to building, the environment, technology, and theoretical stances.

Visiting faculty Jeff Kipnis’ design studio, one of 10 vertical studios offered at SCI-Arc this fall, is focused on developing a design proposal for a hybrid brothel/child-care center (watch a video intro here). The unique brothel will offer female and male services to select clients with a full range of additional optional accommodations including gourmet meals, fine libations and entertainment. The day-care/pre-school would accept infants through kindergarten, scheduled and on short notice. For every age and length of stay, the school would be programmed, outfitted, and staffed to match the extraordinary service level of the brothel.

SCI-Arc is now accepting applications for the Master of Architecture program. Deadline to apply is December 15, 2014.Sponsor // SCI Arc Now Accepting Applications for Master of Architecture Program sponsor

OK Go’s Latest Music Video Features Hundreds of Umbrella-Wielding Dancers

OK Gos Latest Music Video Features Hundreds of Umbrella Wielding Dancers umbrellas music video dancing

Only four months after their music video for the “The Writing’s on the Wall” filled with optical illusions, OK Go are back with yet another meticulously choreographed dance video for “I Won’t Let You Down.” Filmed in Japan, this new clip features more than a few umbrellas, Honda UNI-CUB personal vehicles (a kind of tiny robo scooter), and a cast of hundreds. Make sure to stick around for the final shot, hard to believe it’s even real, but knowing OK Go, it certainly is.

Artist Steve Spazuk Paints with Fire

Artist Steve Spazuk Paints with Fire smoke painting fire etching

This is a lovely video profile of artist Steve Spazuk (previously) who has developed a unique way of “painting” using the soot left behind from candle smoke. While it seems like he just holds a candle to paper and draws with the smoke, his range of techniques are a bit more subtle. Spazuk often doesn’t know what images he intends to make but instead explores patterns and shapes found in the soot to guide the artwork. He also employs stencils and a reductive process akin to etching, where he scrapes images into the soot with feathers and paint brushes. You can see more of his recent work on his website. Directed by Patrick Peris. (via iGNANT)

A Spider Fixing a Leaf

OK, so the spider isn’t fixing the leaf, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing (and no, it’s not Photoshop). Paris-based photographer Bertrand Kulik stumbled onto this tiny spider who managed to construct its web inside a leaf with a giant hole and snapped these photos at just the right angle. (thnx, Alex!)
