David Foster Wallace: This Is Water

“In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.”
This one is making the rounds but it’s certainly worth a look.

“A video about the beauty of creating…”
Also a video about the custom metalworking of a new pen. Kind of cool. Beautifully conceived.

Two months breaking ice (in under five minutes)

“Time-lapse of our icebreaker, the Nathaniel B. Palmer, traveling through the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Two months of sequences, condensed into less than five minutes, with a surprise at the end.”
I was thinking while I watched this “I’d love to do that”, until I found out that the filmmaker is a marine scientist, so… that’s unlikely.

Perception of Consequence

“Art Director, Kamil Nawratil recently finished a personal and very passionate project titled, Perception of Consequence.”
Very hard to describe but pretty beautiful and bizarre.
