Music Video: Alt-J “Hunger of the Pine”

One of my favourite video directors, Nabil, returns with another terrific video (you might remember this video for James Blake and this video for Just Blaze and Baauer). Alt-J’s “Hunger of the Pine” is a little bit violent, just to warn you. Watch the video below.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs
