Stocking











First there was 'Planking', then we had 'Leisure Diving', but that's so two weeks ago. 'Stocking' is the new planking. This is the simple art of recreating stock photography in the comfort of your own home. See more here.

The Comedy Carpet



How do you honour 1000 comedians and their work? How about spending £2.6m creating 160,000 3-dimensional letters embedded in concrete? Created by artist Gordon Young, with typography by Why Not Associates, the Comedy Carpet is a celebration of comedy on an extraordinary scale. Referring to the work of more than 1,000 comedians and comedy writers, the carpet gives visual form to jokes, songs and catchphrases dating from the early days of variety to the present.

Drive

Halloween LMFAO

Abandoned televisions

Real Human Interface

The thought that machines may eventually become "intelligent" is as old as Captain Kirks first battle with the Klingons. The "Hi" human interface explores the reality that this intelligence in machines may mean that computers are actually inhabited by human operators. A charming and slightly evil prospect.

Whole Lotta Winslow

Remember the Police Academy movies? Michael Winslow spawned a whole generation of kids trying to beatbox and make 'wiggy wiggy' record scratch sounds using only their mouths. Here he shows he hasn't lost the knack by tearing up Zeppelin's 'Whole lotta love'.

Happy Friday Tune

It's Friday, and this particular Friday is lawn bowls day at The Monkeys. Naomi has selected this Art Vs. Science track amongst others to crank up green side as we enjoy this glorious Sydney spring day.

Caught Inside

Big rap to this great film from Director Adam Blaiklock and Producer Paul Friedman at Flying Fish. Anyone who’s ever been on a surf trip knows that things get slightly unhinged when you’re stuck on a boat for a week, and Caught Inside explores what happens when the hinges are ripped off entirely. Unbelievable performance from Ben Oxenbould, whom none of the Monkeys will ever look at the same way again, even from the safety of a sound booth.

Clinton Foundation Celebrity Division

Hold your breath for a minute and watch a who's who of Hollywood pitching ideas for the Clinton Foundation.
