Arcade Fire “Afterlife” Live Music Video Directed by Spike Jonze

Arcade Fire Afterlife Live at the Youtube Awards

Spike Jonze has done it again! Breathing new life into awards shows by directing a live music video for Arcade Fire and a million other things at the recent YouTube Music Awards (that nobody watched). The slow reveal of the award show itself is perfect. Loved Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha, and she does a great job here.

Did any of you watch the award show? What did you think? It was really rocky at times but it was also kind of brilliant. From the Tyler the Creator performance to the Lena Dunham short, there was an energy to it all that Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows just don’t have. If you missed it you can watch the whole show here.

Watch “Afterlife” below! Props to the camera operator!

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
