The masters of meticulously choreographed music videos, OK Go, just released their latest: a three-minute clip for their new single Upside Down & Inside Out shot entirely in zero gravity. The video was filmed aboard a reduced gravity aircraft at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center near Moscow over a period of three weeks. More

New Inverted Architecture Paintings by Cinta Vidal

Barcelona-based Cinta Vidal (previously) produces complex architectural constructions to express how differently individuals can occupy the same world— each inhabitant carving out their own nook, cranny, and path within a similar environment. Her new acrylic on wood panels continue to serve as a metaphor for the difficulty of understanding those around us, especially while distracted by navigating our own complicated existence.
Vidal’s paintings set domestic and natural environments in their own gravity-defying orbit, making small planets out of Bauhaus homes, secluded camping spots, and cacti-filled parks. More

Austrian director and visual artist Clemens Wirth created this gorgeous visual feast of gravitational experiments called Gravity. With the exception of a segment depicting digital black fabric, all the visuals were made with practical effects inside a special rig that can be rotated 360° with or without the camera. Wirth says he found inspiration both from the film Inception, and a similar project from a few years ago by Feedme Design. More

In her latest series of paintings, Barcelona-based artist and illustrator Cinta Vidal Agulló defies gravity and architectural conventions to create encapsulated scenes of intersecting perspectives. Painted with acrylic on wood panels, Vidal refers to the paintings as “un-gravity constructions” and says that each piece examines how a person’s internal perspective of life may not match up with the reality around them. The intersecting planes on many of her paintings are somewhat reminiscent of drawings by M.C. More

Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg: A Gravity-Defying Chain Reaction

Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg: A Gravity-Defying Chain Reaction

It’s been a while since we’ve had a quality Rube Goldberg device here on Colossal and it appears the folks over at Toronto-based 2D House have stepped up to the challenge. Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg is an extremely slick chain reaction aided by magnets and all matter of visual trickery. Just watch, try to guess which way is up, and have your mind blown. 2d House has also produced a number of other Rube Goldberg devices which you can see here. More

First: watch the video. Twenty-five year old, Toronto-based artist Amy Shackleton paints these lusciously drippy paintings without use of a brush or fingers, instead she relies on good old gravity (and occasionally string as a guide) to move the paint slowly across the canvas in delicately controlled pours. The video above captures the somewhat tedious yet brilliant process in detail, as a 30-hour painting session condensed into two minutes. I find this so unbelievably amazing and beautiful. More

Whoa. I have no idea what this is, suffice to say, I want one. Balance Study is a video by Jacob Tonski that studies balance filmed from a fixed horizon. Tonski says the project began as a metaphor for the disorienting experience of art graduate school. (via trendbehere) More
