    If plagiarism is possible in art, this is
    the best example I’ve ever come across.

      In reply to WHATNOW…. I went to those two links you posted above and yes, I have to agree with you that there is a direct connection in similarities by the maker Ally of those two videos posted above to the original “Drawing Apparatus” created by MFA Artist Robert Howsare in 2009.

      Robert Howsare’s ‘Drawing Apparatus” definitely has the ‘WOW’ factor which I saw was lacking in the two videos you posted WHATNOW. It’s all good though. 😀

      Bravo to MFA Artist Robert Howsare for your creation of such a whimsical, ingenious, and original ‘Drawing Apparatus”!! The simplicity of the Spirograph has returned!!! Thank you!! 😀

      @WHATNOW

      please do your research before making claims like this – otherwise you just come across as ignorant.

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.

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.
