    [nitpick] The dimensions of the 2001 Space Odyssey monoliths are supposed to be exactly 1:4:9, not 2:4:8 [/nitpick]

      haha yea i was thinking it would have been amazing to have skewed the dimensions to match the monolith and insert it into a recreation of the monkeys scene.

    Yeah, it looks like 1:4:9 for sure. I don’t know where the writer got 2:4:8 from.

      i got the dimensions directly from his website. i don’t know how the dimensions could be 2x4x8 but that’s what the website says!

    So far past the age of magnetic video, it’s a surprise someone hasn’t done this before. Anyway: awesome.

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!
