Kyung Woo Han

Green Room is an installation by South Korean artist Kyung Woo Han who has an MFA in Film, Video and New Media from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. With nothing more than a little paint, some furniture, and clear wire he’s created one of the most stunning spacial visual effects I’ve encountered in a long time. To fully appreciate what’s going on you can catch a video on his site as someone (presumably Han) navigates the space. (via look in art)

Life Through a Marble

January 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This last August before a trip to Alaska a 16-year-old from New Jersey who goes by the Flickr name Cabe26 decided he wanted to pick up photography. The tiny worlds above, flipped, magnified and skewed through tiny glass marbles are among his very first photographs. Here’s a quote from an interview with Short List:

“I realised I could innovate the idea using a much smaller piece of glass and using new techniques, strategies and compostions,” he explained. “I realised I had hit on something when I took the first picture. Before even processing it I realised the idea worked out perfectly. The focus was superb, the composition was right on, and it was eye-catching.”

Cabe26, please don’t ever put that camera down. (via short list)

Chicago Mirrored Time-lapse

It's crazy how a simple mirror filter can transform a video into something else. from Craig Shimala on Vimeo.

I’m having difficulty putting into words the awesomeness of this video by Craig Shimala. I think my amazement rests in the simplicity of its production: a GoPro Hero HD mounted to the front windshield of his car, and a mirror effect applied with Vegas Movie Studio HD — and yet the results are mind-blowing.

Update: See also Tokyo Sky Drive and Shinkansen ver.2.
