Laurent Perbos

Came across some work by Laurent Perbos that I thought was pretty funny. I remember back at artschool my friend Dave installed a ping pong table in the concourse gallery. The great thing about it was he made the table incredibly skinny to fit a tiny gap (only a few inches) between the wall and the hand rail for the staircase. Had a net, paddles, everything – this instantly reminded me of that.

$20 Homemade Fisheye Lens

Why pay $300 for a fisheye when you can go to Home Depot and build one for $20? My friend Ryan and I bought a peephole and a couple pieces of pvc, stuck them together with a hot glue gun, and it was done. Literally 20 minutes. I felt like Steven Seagal when he made that silencer with a 2L pop bottle in Under Siege.

Take a peek at the fishy footage and some more photos below!

Spike Jonze Interview

Moriarty over at Ain’t It Cool News recently posted a great interview with Spike Jonze. If you are half as excited for Where The Wild Things Are as I am you need to read this interview! Now someone just needs to turn Strega Nona into a movie and my life will be complete (I love kids books if you haven’t noticed).

TimeSculpture

Brilliant new ad for Toshiba by The Mill. How did they do this? I am still trying to wrap my head around this one. It looks like multiple passes with a bullet-time camera setup.

Cameron Wittig

Love this photo called Vantage Point by Cameron Wittig. He’s shot a bunch of great portraits of people as well – see if you can identify the three portraits I grabbed.

Yann Lebec

How about a collection of 1950′s film posters re-illustrated by Yann Lebec. No? Too bad! I’m forcing them on you. These are so AWESOME. I have to admit that I do have a little bit of an obsession with film posters.
