Sia / Soon We’ll Be Found

After seeing Sia’s Letterman performance of Soon We’ll Be Found I had to find out more about her. The Australian pop singer released an album earlier this year and I believe Beck is featured on it. This is the quirky official video, directed by Claire Carré.

Watch the Letterman performance after the jump!

  • I like her! Thanks for sharing.

  • i totally forgot that was her! i remember seeing this video and just staring in disbelief, i heard they shot something like 2500 polaroids!!!

  • i should have stuck with that show i watched a few episodes from the first season, i liked it but started watching too many other things, i just finished madmen season 1

    2500 polaroids, outch! coincidently, the first time i heard this song was on the six feet under season finale and has everything to do whit claire (she plays a photografer)

  • Love Sia…I’ve got a bunch of her music….

  • i saw sia earlier this year in D.C. Quirky is right – but she’s so much fun!

  • i hope she comes to vancouver sometime soon

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
