Welcome to July…
And your Friday Videos, of course.
All set? All set!!
“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.
“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.
“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
“All visuals captured in camera by back projecting the animated story into the breaths of the band.”
“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.
