“Andante” by MIT’s Tangible Media Group is an exploration in musical motion, intended to visualize the bodily experience and natural rhythms of music. While this project is no doubt highly sophisticated, there’s something super charming about simply watching these little animated characters play the piano as they walk! Check out the full video over at Booooooom TV!
Booooooom TV is for filmmakers and film lovers. We’ll be showcasing what we feel are the best animations, short films, music videos and documentaries. All the content that was previously featured in our film category will now live over there. We will be premiering films with some of our favourite directors and producing our own video content for it as well.
We have a lot of amazing things in the works for this new chapter of Booooooom. Have a look around, test it out, watch a bunch of videos. I think you’ll really enjoy the experience of watching films on there. Some changes yet to be made so if you have any feedback for us, send us a tweet! Enjoy!
“Emergence Lab” is a hand-painted, anamorphic sculpture by Austrian artist, Thomas Medicus. Made up of a complex layering of 216 laser cut, acrylic glass strips suspended within a transparent cube frame, the result is an amazing 3D effect with a distinct image becoming visible on each different side. Check out the short video below for a closer look at Medicus’ meticulous handiwork!
“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Creating photographs without a subject or a camera may sound ridiculous but the resulting large-scale images by photographer Brittany Nelson speak for themselves. “Alternative Process” is the result of various experimentations with historical photographic processes like Tintype, Daguerrotype, Mordancage, and Halochrome. More images below. Also, video of Nelson talking about the chemistry processes behind her work!
Artist and experimental musician Graham Dunning’s Mechanical Techno Demonstration is exactly what it sounds like! Dunning demonstrates his incredible hand-made method for making techno music: layering locked records, analogue synths, even mechanically triggered percussion. Watch how it all comes together below!

Mexican-American artist, Ramiro Gomez Jr.’s work showcases the contributions of domestic labourers in the Los Angeles area, by placing them into the scenes of luxury they are responsible for maintaining but appear largely absent after their work is done. Part of The Atlantic‘s American Dreams series, this video portrait by Kelly Loudenberg, gives insight into the personal motivation behind his work, featuring Gomez’s parents who are Mexican immigrants themselves, working jobs similar to those he depicts.
