    Amazing and maddening. Will that be the face the machines make right before they kill us all?

    I experienced this at a gallery who’s name escapes me at the moment. It’s really great to see technology collide with some organic medium. The sounds created by the mirrors rotation was pretty interesting as well.Very exciting stuff!

    For those asking how it’s done, the ‘Peg Mirror’ video starts to give a basic understanding of how different tones are achieved.

    what????? great work i dont belive 😀 its crazy

    The basic workings I believe is a video camera relaying information about the image captured which is translated into a value of rotation and the like per motor on each part of the piece. It’s great to experienced it in real life because you can see all the workings of it.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
