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

    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!”

    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!

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
