    Okay, in my ever curious frame of mind, I’m always attempting to figure out the “how” of some of these really unique conceptual ideas.

    In the video for “Building”, all I can think of is that he was sitting there watching this building get constructed for 2 days and filmed his hand motions for the entire time. Unless there was some sort of trickery involved?

    Anyway, I love things like this that make you wonder….

      I’d say timelapse and hands added afterwards? Else he’d have really tired arms!!

        That’s what I originally thought, but the sunlight (and at night, the ambient light) matches what’s happening in the building site.

      Impossible to stay up this long sitting beside a camera and constantly keeping your arm up doing slowmotion movements.
      You cant possibly keep that up for longer than 5 minutes.

      Basicaly recreating that light is quite simple, just get a dimmable light source and adjust the light.
      The Hand movements clearly have cuts (not constantly filmed)
      he just adjusted the light in the room he was filming his hands.

      I wonder if he estimated his movements in a bluebox
      or if he did it live and simply played the film while moving his hands – recording the screen and the hands at the same time.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


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!
