  • 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

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.
