A basketball bounces and rolls its way through a whole lotta famous films thanks to French animation studio HOTU. Bonus points if you know all three films above. Watch “87 Bounces” below.
“Breaking The Surface” is a collaboration between ctrl+N, Scandinavian Design Group, Kontur, Abida, and Intek for Lundin Norway. The installation is essentially a grid of plastic cyclinders that move up into the ceiling as people walk underneath it. The wave-like motions can be experienced from below, on the first floor, but also from above, on the second floor. Love to see this in person, watch the videos below.
I’m excited to debut this video from one of my favourite bands, the husband and wife duo of Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin, better known as Wildbirds & Peacedrums. They have such a raw energy, unsettling in the best way possible, driven mostly by Mariam’s vocals and lots of drumming from both of them. If you’re unfamiliar with their music here’s a couple amazing live examples to watch here and here (the 6-min mark of the second link gets me pumped every time).
A couple years ago I wrote about Taylor Holland’s Fra[mes] project in which he digitally manipulated ornate frames from the Louvre. He since partnered with Sainthill Lijsten, who do restoration work and framing for large institutions like the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to create real versions of the absurd frames.
Here are six antique frames filled with repeated elements from the frames themselves, using custom molds built from the digital images. See the rest below.
