“What if ‘Monty Python and The Holy Grail’ would release in 2013 ?”
Sort of funny.

Amazing Resonance Experiment!

“So this experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. I used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone. Certain frequencies vibrate the metal plate in such a way that it creates areas where there is no vibration. The sand “falls” into those areas, creating beautiful geometric patterns.”
This is kind of hypnotic.

“The sand that breathes motion!”

Climate Name Change

Friday the 13th – it’s actually your lucky day!

Videos ahead!! (Duck!)



“I was lucky enough to be sent to Rio on assignment to shoot some 4K and 10K timelapse footage for a major electronics manufacturer. This video is a compilation of some of the footage I shot there.”
Time-lapse footage is still perhaps the default output of most people with shiny new cameras, but once in a while someone makes something like this and it’s still really beautiful.

“I attempted to create a person in order to emulate the aging process. The idea was that something is happening but you can’t see it but you can feel it, like aging itself.”
Quite the process went into making this short little video. Amazing.
And yes, this is hugely viral right now. Well worth it too.

Truly amazing visual technology here.

Happy Friday everybody.
