Mind-melting video directed by Hirad Sab for Ash Koosha’s track “I Feel That,” features 3D figures in off-kilter poses. Definitely a song I would never listen to on its own, but the video is oddly captivating. Check it out below!

50 Fantastic Remakes of Famous Artworks (Not Featured In Our Book)

This summer we released our first-ever Booooooom book, “Remake”, chronicling our massive art project in which people all over the world re-created master works of art. Thank you to all the publications that have written about the book, the response has been unreal.

I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight a selection of the incredible submissions that did not end up in the final version of the book. In a perfect world, everyone’s work would have been printed in the book but I simply did not have the budget to secure image rights to all the original master works of art to be able to include everything (this was very painful for me during the editing process). I actually gave up my entire book advance from Chronicle Books to get the rights to as many works as I could.

Below are 50 terrific submissions to our remake project, none of which you will see as you flip through the book. Note: I arbitrarily picked the number 50 for this article; this list could probably be twice as long.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project, I am convinced that we have the most talented (and active) creative community on the Internet. Have a look at the works below.

frenchgirls-summermashup

This week the Internet belongs to three French girls, Lucia, Elisa and Juliet, who formed a band called L.E.J. aka Elijay and whose recent video covers everything from Major Lazer’s “Lean On” to Rihanna’s “BBHMM” with a cello and a drum.

Their talent is undeniable and they exude a fun energy that even makes songs I’ve heard a million times fresh again. Watch the video below.
