  • i personally like animations to have more imperfections, more of a human touch to them but i applaud the effort here

  • Niko

    Heck yeah, I would have liked to see an alternate angle, just something for a split second that showed you, “oh dang, those are quarters yeah!”

  • Magda

    It’s awesome to see some video game related art featured! The music is fantastic and greatly sets the tone. I would agree though that it would have been better if you didn’t have to watch the behind the scenes to realize it was all real. Also, I wish the game connections would have been better elaborated on. Why do I need a gun to shoot Pac-man ghosts…

    Oh and the beginning of the stop motion was great because it reminded me of gameplay from the Virtual boy!

  • Sick.

  • Appreciated effort, but visually.. I don’t know, It’s like going back to PS when we now have PS3!

  • owen
  • hooray for old video games!
    right now we’re working on an introduction animation for a comedy show about old video games, you can see a preview here http://www.birdbee.be/archives/1217

  • this is fake, computer generated I think.

    • if you’d watch till the end you’d see that its not

  • Rymdreglage have made it again. o.o

  • Dandanyeahman

    THIS IS TOO COOOL!
    projectors open limitless possibilities i want want so bad

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
