Here’s to Friday!

And videos! And Friday and Videos!

» Humans Need Not Apply

Humans Need Not Apply
This 15 minute short documentary about the coming automation of everything has been making the rounds but it’s definitely one of the most insightful discussions about technology and its role in our society that I think I’ve ever seen. Well done.
Hat tip to Bonnie P., Jenni W. and Ashy T.

Above The Wedge
“Aerial work featuring this emblematic break in Newport Beach, CA.”
Stunning. 🙂

» Enter Pyongyang

Enter Pyongyang
“Enter Pyongyang is another stunning collaboration between city-­branding pioneer JT Singh and flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth. Blending time-lapse photography, acceleration and slow motion, HD and digital animation, they have produced a cutting-edge panorama of a city hardly known, but one emerging on the visitor’s landscape as North Korea’s opening unfolds.”
This is one cityscape time-lapse video I was *not* expecting to come across. Interesting.

» Virginia Tech: Eric Standley

Virginia Tech: Eric Standley
“Eric Standley is an associate professor in the School of Visual Arts in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech. Standley’s artwork is truly cutting edge, with layer upon layer of intricately laser-cut sheets of paper forming a rich, colorful, and detailed whole.”
These are amazing!

Bonus Video:

» Rose of Jericho

Rose of Jericho
“A time lapse of a Rose of Jericho (Selaginella lepidophylla). After being exposed to water, the plant turns from a dried tumbleweed to a green fern over the course of several hours.”
Hypnotic.

Have a great weekend all of you. Stay safe out there.
