» NYC: One Sec Shots

NYC: One Sec Shots

“My heart belongs to San Francisco — but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a love affair on the side. This is a San Franciscan’s perspective of the people and place that make New York City.”
I like it.

» Floating Garden – Saltwork by Motoi Yamamoto

Floating Garden - Saltwork by Motoi Yamamoto

“On February 18, 2013, Japanese installation artist Motoi Yamamoto began work on a large-scale saltwork on the floor of the Morrison Atrium of Mint Museum Uptown. This time-lapse film documents the creation of “Floating Garden” and the community dismantling ceremony on Sunday, March 3, 2013.”
One of the most intricate artworks I think I’ve ever seen.
Much more detail here.

» Tony Hawk’s Final Ride On His Very First Skateboard

Tony Hawk's Final Ride On His Very First Skateboard

“Before sending my first skateboard to forever live at Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, I rode it one last time. Bearings that are nearly 40 years old are pretty slow, but at least it stayed in one piece.” — Tony Hawk

» Travis ‘Moving’ – Directors Cut

Travis 'Moving' - Directors Cut

“All visuals captured in camera by back projecting the animated story into the breaths of the band.”
I like.

Bonus Video:

» Bert Haanstra – Glas

Bert Haanstra - Glas

“Short docu with matching music and no talking about Dutch glass production in the 50’s. From Bert Haanstra.
Fun fact: this also won the Best Short Documentary Oscar in 1959.

Happy, Happy Friday everybody.
