A lovely animated short by Rachel Kwak for an experimental animation class at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her craftmanship is impressive including a number of techniques including cut-outs, hand-drawn stills, stop motion and replacement animation. (via kuriositas)

How Chicago Cancels Fireworks

July 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This year due to budgetary restraints Chicago cancelled it’s annual 4th of July fireworks show. This 2-minute timelapse, shot on Western avenue facing the Lake Michigan shoreline, shows how many of us feel about that. Fireworks are of course banned within city limits. (via gaper’s)

The Ridiculous Pool: Spraypaint Skateboarding

Christopher Jobson

Based on some of the comments I saw on Twitter and Facebook it seems a few were a bit upset by this morning’s post about Dtagno’s train graffiti device. To swing the vandalism/art pendulum back in the other direction check out D*Face’s Ridiculous Pool Paint Attack where a couple of skateboarders use remote controlled spraypaint cans mounted to the base of their decks to create an enormous spirograph in an empty swimming pool.

Kinetic Sculptures by Mihai Bonciu

June 28, 2011

I love that these wiry automata by Mihai Bonciu require complex components to make such simple actions. They also seem so incredibly delicate, like winding them the wrong way could cause the entire contraption to collapse. More please!

A new short by JW Griffiths shot entirely with a mobile phone. The editing to match up each shot is simply impeccable. (via vimeo)
