A love poem that is pretty excellent.

One of my favorite YouTube channels, Smarter Every Day, did a really cool demonstration of “Light Painting” with long exposure cameras. Enjoy.

“Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton swaps the studio for the slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France, with a luminous after hours short starring Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes. The electrifying film sees Hughes light up the snow-covered French hills in a bespoke L.E.D.-enveloped suit courtesy of designer and electronics whizz John Spatcher.”

“After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago, my wife and I (Sean Ohlenkamp) decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto.”

While working this fall, I meet Nemo Gould in Oakland. He is an incredible Kinetic Sculpture, taking salvaged scrap metals to create art pieces. Check out some of his work. Here is his website: http://nemomatic.com

A guy I met through Rental Car Rally a few months ago named Cesar Kuriyama is doing an interesting project — he’s taking one second of video of his life every day for one year, documenting his experience and point of view in micro-moments. He has gotten a bit of attention already, because he got into the audition rounds to give a TED Talk on the project. This video here is the trailer that got him selected by the TED Talks committee.
Cesar says he’s planning to launch a website where others join him in recording their own one-second-a-day videos. (Seems like something that would be right up a few Pie Heaven readers’ alley.)
Also…I happen to be in one of the shots in this promo video. I’m the guy dressed as a scientist standing next to the bicycle-riding robot — who is another Pie Heaven contributor, Tim Reese. It’s a quick glimpse of a 2am desert bicycle joust from Rental Car Rally: LA to Tahoe this past February.
Anyway, I wish Cesar luck with the project, and I look forward to seeing the finished 365 second video!
PS: Since we’re on the subject of Rental Car Rally, here’s a video that Cesar put together with footage from the LA to Tahoe rally. There’s another rally coming up at the end of June, LA to Vegas, and I encourage all of you in the SoCal area to sign up. It’s a blast.

I’ve seen a lot of footage of elephants painting before, but it’s always been very abstract, blotchy images. This elephant paints a recognizable picture of another elephant…and opens up a lot of questions about animal intelligence and artistic expression. Pretty remarkable.

Timelapses of cities around North America (New York, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Chicago). One of the most beautiful videos I’ve ever seen…watch this in FULL SCREEN HD to get the full effect. This is absolutely stunning!

Twenty years of The Simpsons has made them stiff. Interesting how the animation style has changed.
