Little Scream / Made of Imagination

Little Scream / Made of Imagination

 

 

This is the third video we produced for MTV and Sony Xperia, and it features Little Scream! Nada and I are huuuge fans of hers so this really was a dream come true to have her be a part of this project.

In keeping with the unconventional instruments theme, we paired up Little Scream with sound designers Lo and Joseph and circuit benders from Toronto’s InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Center! Together they completely reinvented her song “Canons”. Albert Huh did a superb job capturing this performance. He’s been filming and editing all the videos in this series, and deserves a massive shout out!

Hopefully this video pumps you up to spend the weekend building your own instruments! You still have a week or so to get your submissions in, and remember we’re giving away Sony Xperia phones and Booooooom goodies as prizes!

If you wanna get involved jump over here.

You can see the full gallery of submissions here.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
