Brett Cohen decided he wanted to know what it was like to be famous. So he just pretended to be.

Insane in the Chromatophores

At last the age old question 'what does a squids chromatophores look like at 8X magnification when exposed to the vibrations of Cypress Hill's Insane in the membrane' is answered. For a proper explanation check this out.

The Poster Art of Paul McNeil

Mambo artist, owner of Art Park and all round legend Paul McNeil recently had a retrospective show of his band posters. This is a nice vid with Paul talking about his work. A must watch for anyone who was into the aussie band scene in the 90's.

Gotye - Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra

They say mimicry is the highest form of flattery. Gotye was so flattered he cut together this awesome YouTube orchestra of his massive hit song 'Somebody That I Used To Know'.

Beautiful and bizarre landscapes of Sicily, called L'Isola, from photographer Francesco Millefiori.  More work here.

The Art of Glitch

The latest in the PBS 'Off Book' series looks at artists who actually want their images, video and sound to fail. This glitch art is an interesting exploration into our technology and actually adds a more organic element to what is usually 0's and 1's.

Hell Broke Luce



Director Matt Mahurin creates an apocalyptic war dream for Tom Waits' tune "Hell Broke Luce".  Awesome.

Nowhereisland

Nowhereisland is an artwork by Alex Hartley. Basically it is a movable island with citizenship open to all. It has caught the imagination of thousands of people across the world. Almost 16,000 people from nearly 100 countries have already signed up to be citizens, contributing to the online constitution and responding to the year-long Resident Thinkers programme.

EAMES : The Architect & The Painter


I have seen a handful of docos and TV specials on Charles and Ray Eames so when I saw there was another one I was skeptical. This does look really inspiring though.
Thanks Becky F.

Richard Mosse's book Infra documents the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo with Kodak Aerochrome, a discontinued, infrared, aerial surveillance film.  More work is available at his website, or you can buy the book here.

PSY - GANGNAM STYLE

Nice video for Korean hip hop star PSY's new track 'Gangnam Style'. Composed solely by PSY himself from lyrics to choreography. It's like Bollywood and Michael Jackson had a Hip Hop baby in Harajuku.

SAMSARA

Expanding on the themes director Ron Fricke developed in BARAKA (1992) and CHRONOS (1985), SAMSARA explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous. Shot entirely on 70mm film I will be scrambling to find a cinema playing it as intended or at least in 4k digital.
Thanks Stew A.

Feistodon



Indie chicks and progressive metal actually go quite well together. Who woulda thunk it. 
Check out the cool interactive clip from Feistodon, the aptly named collaboration between Feist and Mastodon. Depending on how you're feeling this afternoon, you can crank up the distortion, or get a little mellow with some violin. I'm leaving it somewhere in the middle.

Filippo Minelli



Ongoing project from photographer Filippo Minelli called Silence/Shapes, more work can be viewed here.
