Move

“Move” by Rick Mereki. I think garnering nearly 1 million views in 2 days kinda speaks for itself.

    oh my goodness those are awesome

  • Someone’s living the dream. Fortunately for us they have the skills to share a little of it with us.

  • i love “EAT!” yum !!

  • Lauren Ellis

    Beautiful in every aspect. I’ve been looking for a travel partner for a long time now.

  • Credit

    These are interesting, they feel like well produced commercials.

  • Wow,I wish I had all the money it takes to do that stuff.

  • Reminds me of “Where the Hell is Matt?” on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY

  • I think this guy wants to be hired to do publicities like Nikon, Sony or Sharp … lol

  • Eliaz

    technically it’s okay, very good, but…44 days/18 countries, it’s everything you want but it’s NOT a trip. and these videos are financed by a cheap flights company… it’s like when some american people take a Rome + Barcelone + Paris + Berlin tour in a week, and they come back home saying “yeah, we’ve done Europe!”
    So I think it’s a lil bit easy to say that the million of views are “speaking for itself”

    • i think you misunderstood me when i said “it speaks for itself” – i only meant that the insane amount of views suggested it was worth watching, not that it was in any way a thorough look at all these places.

      in my opinion it was completely successful for what it was attempting to be.

    • Chelsea

      Ouch. I took a month trip around Europe (it was a tour) and I by no means say ‘I’ve done Europe’. Barely. And I don’t believe this guy is saying that either. It was, however, most certainly a trip.
      This video (especially ‘move’) is worth the watch for the concept alone. I’ll admit the guy likes his face though…

    Am currently living in Argentina and was fun to recognize so many of the photos taken there! With that said, I think overall I agree with Eliaz its a very pretty, but superficial look at “traveling” and felt like a cheesy commercial in both Learn and Eat, I don’t know…its like the condensed version of that shitty movie with Julia Roberts Eat, Pray, Love. I kinda hated it. There is so much to every culture it just kind of depresses me when people try and condense it to a couple of tourist attractions. Just makes it feel stereotypical and disposable.

    • this is a fair criticism – i agree with you about the eat and learn films but i still really like the Move one

    • This is a cheesy commercial, in Australia for STA travel.

  • I have no idea if this was the intention, but the fact that these 3 are called “Move, Learn, Eat” just reminds me of “Eat, Love, Pray”.

  • nicely done!!!

    im sure some company is going to start using these concepts for commercial hehe

  • Nambo

    WOAH!! I need to keep living with my life because I’ve still got much to learn..

  • Toby

    ‘learn’ is my favourite out of the three by far. It’s so nice seeing people share knowledge and experiences.

  • Oliver

    The feeling I got after watching ‘Move’ was… to get off the damn computer and make something happen. And if that was the filmmaker’s goal, he succeeded. Simply engaging and beautifully shot

  • Emma D

    I’m on a trip in Paris right now and I can’t even tell you how depressing it is to not have the time to really EXPERIENCE a city–I can see the culture around me but, as a non-french speaking tourist, I have no idea how to attempt to actually immerse myself in it. I’d either have to live here in Paris to truly “experience” the city, or have some sort of godly travel guide.

  • lud

    im probably a emo retard, but that first vid really made me cry.

  • The concept of Move is fantastic. I am amazed how many people feel compelled to criticize an artist’s work.

  • (note to moderator: can you please fix my typo in recent post? Thank you! (the “and” should be “an”

  • alice

    looove the elephants in the water. want. to. do. that.
    i think the concepts are really cool. and i guess its just giving people a taste of what can be experienced when you travel. it definitely gives me the urge to travel. cant waait.

  • Jasmine

    It is just a snap shot but it is a well done snap shot at that. It holds value even if it is very commercial, not everything has to be about grime to make it real. Some things stand alone in beauty… let something be pleasant. Yes there is more to these countries but how can anyone hate on something that inclines the mind to wonder about other cultures and entices people to be more culturally aware. Not everything can be art house cinema, which might I add can sometimes also be equally if not more cheesy. Just enjoy the view for what it is, beautiful scenery around our wonderful planet.

  • Jono

    haven’t been here in a while.. but those videos were amazing

Gold-Fused Sculptures Made From Remnants of Shattered Porcelain

Yeesookyung9

According to Korean tradition, artisans have a habit of destroying and discarding imperfect pieces. Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
