This shelf by Daniel Eatock sags under the weight of its contents, but the selection of books results in a perfectly flush edge along the top.

If you’re done sightseeing in Moscow, why not leave the city and hook up some DIY bungee jumping from an abandoned building.

We Have Band: You Came Out

December 8, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Stumbled onto this 2009 stop motion video for You Came Out by We Have Band, it’s lovely if not slightly bizarre.

The face paint animation film is made up of 4,816 separate stills. Each and every frame was hand-painted, shot, wiped off and redrawn, slightly differently for the next frame in order to create a seamless sequence. This time-consuming process involved the band members lying still for two consecutive days in a studio.

In order to animate the singing bit, lip movement was created by animating a painted mouth on the singer Dede. This involved breaking the lyrics into phonetics and giving each sound a specific mouth shape. To make this as realistic as possible all the mouth shapes were painted on Dedes face individually and then shot. All 4,816 frames of the music video can be found on Flickr

If you’re lucky enough to live in Italy they’ll be in Milan tomorrow night and Bologna on Friday. (via polkadot)

Manifold Clock by Studio Ve

December 8, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The Manifold Clock is a wall-mounted clock with a manifold that connects the hour and minute hands to create three dimensional movement. I immediately thought this was another brilliant concept piece destined to hang forever on a gallery wall, but lo and behold this clock is available now in three different color combos for only $45.
