  • Nice !
    and Yoann Lemoine IS Woodkid, which makes him at least twice more talented…

  • haha! I just paid the first time to download a .mp3 file, all because you posted this!

    :)

  • Goosebumps.

  • Alienrace

    The song was great, but the video was mind blowing. I have never seen such a beautiful music video!

  • MI

    Not really diggin the music, but WOW to the mesmerizing video. Great shots!

  • Gosh, everything about that was mind blowing. So epic and big.

  • Ok, this is insane, love it!

  • for my part, I see nothing surprising in the video… and the slow motion is interminable… Ben Dickinson’s video for “To The Lighthouse”for instance seems like a much better use of the group-of-people-seen-individually-then-fighting-or-something setup… it is more unified, where this seems a bit of a jumble

  • chills.

  • tess

    that was the best kind of ridiculous! it’s amazing how much effect slowed down shots with a high speed camera can give in video’s like this.. reminded be of http://vimeo.com/21292513
    ^ was waiting for a chance to show you this actually jeff!

  • I am pretty sure the image at the end of the video is the Mormon Temple in Switzerland.

    Why?

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
