  • this is brilliant! 🙂

    i wonder how long the song in the video was..

  • Nicolas

    The director copied Spike Jonze in Sweater Song. He recorded it in slow motion and fast forwarded it, Jonze recorded it fast and slowed it down. Unoriginal

    • haha the spike jonze video is by no means the only other video to have used the idea of performing a song at a slower speed and speeding it up afterwards. aside from that the two videos have nothing in commmon –

      however the Vampire Weekend video A-Punk (mentioned below) is EXTREMELY similar – i hadn’t seen it until now

      • Liam Clark

        Also the Mae Shi use a similar Technique. A lovely effect, but it is wrong to attribute it’s use to any particular band. Chances are someone was dicking around with this technique and someone saw it a LONG time ago. It goes up the ladder.

        Check em out. One of my favorite live shows yet.

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.
