Seaweed Sisters is a passion project by acclaimed dancers/choreographers Megan Lawson, Jillian Meyers and Dana Wilson. Prior to meeting my girlfriend I wasn’t at all familiar with the dance world, but these days my favourite thing to search on Youtube is urban dance camp, and I’ve become a huge fan of these three women. This film, set to Tuneyard’s “Water Fountain”, is a follow up to their last film choreographed to Major Lazer’s “Get Free”.
Watch both films below.
Cocoon is a 360 degree x 220 degree immersive video installation and the latest from London-based animation studio, Factory Fifteen. Exhibited at the SAT Immersion Experience Symposium back in May, Cocoon represents the first attempt at 360 degree film making. In the video below, participants are placed inside a transformative, spherical space that eventually peels away.
Around this time last year Foster Huntington decided to build the ultimate tree house and skate bowl. With the help of his friends (some professional carpenters/some not), Huntington was able to make his dream a reality. Having documented the project from start to finish, Huntington is now starting a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of publishing a book that will inspire others. Watch the video of The Cinder Cone below.
Hammerhead Studio in Yokohama, Japan closed in 2014 but this new interactive installation by Lens gives a unique take on what used to be. Shot from above in ultra high resolution video, Giraffe’s Eye allows you to see the daily routines of the artists who inhabited the building with a simple touch of a screen. Really cool idea!
