  • love the dancing and the last couple minutes, especially the “moving through the wall effect”

  • fiorella

    nice groove to start the day with. thanks, man!

  • the big boi part reminds me how much i want another outkast album

    • fiorella

      wouldn’t that be sweet!
      i’d love to have a pair of those cool dancing shoes and slide for fun.

    • clif

      thank you! I knew I wasn’t the only one!

      dear Andre 3000 and Big Boi,

      please get your shit together and do another album.

      sincerely,
      planet earth

  • Not so secret crush on Janelle Monae. Shutter Island + Foot Loose + vintage Soul Train + robots + Outkast doesn’t make any sense at all, but somehow makes perfect sense.

    • not unlike your artwork! wonderfully absurd

      • fiorella

        now that you mentioned it, i checked out scott’s website. i love your artwork and concept behind it, scott, and the website is great, btw. i like the astronaut character and the fact that he never takes his helmet off, as if he couldn’t trust the air. very cool.

      • Ha. Thanks!

  • Miko Ambayec

    <3 those shoes

    • severine

      love the shoes too!
      Seriously, nice groove and dance. the way she moves and dances is fresh and original currently. We see so much pretty girls dancing always with the same style!
      Interesting video too, like the grading and atmosphere, the is something reminding me The Noisettes” Never forget you…
      Thanks for this

  • i am hopelessly addicted to this song/video.

  • azer

    can anyone point me to the reason why we are seeing sooo many instances of this mirror masked cowl thing? In the past 3 months, 3 videos all with the same gag, Yeasayer, Dead Weather, and now this? It’s almost laughable at this point, its a good looking gag, i’m just trying to figure out where this meme came from.

    • its from a 1940s film by maya deren called ‘meshes of the afternoon’ – not sure why so many are referencing it now

  • AMR

    I’m really digging this video! I’m gonna be tightropin’ it all over the place. I think Janelle is very underrated and has the potential to be an icon so I don’t mind her black and white suits. Just pay attention to the music, it’s great!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
