  • This is mesmerizing and the end is like the grand finale of a fireworks show. The making-of video is good too.

  • it’s pretty amazing what you can do with alot of time, creativity and some wooden blocks.

  • Toeger Torkel

    great video… saw this over at ‘and if it’s real’ some time ago.. You should have that site as your “friends” it’s really great.

  • Peter Westergaard

    great video, so imaginative and simple. Agree with mike m, and Toeger, I’ve seen it a ton of places as well, but it’s everywhere theese days – the video. But the site you mention is really cool by the way

  • mesmerizing. and having done some middling stop motion work myself, and the making of video is hilarious (and painfully relatable)

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
