Rail

After his endless strain of back alleys Daniel Crooks found an even better frame for his video stitches. In his new video Phantom Ride the tracks lead you through a host of railway landscapes, this time with a clever twist.

As much as in the Embroidery of Voids video, the audio is a huge addition to the experience.

Inertia

inerciaOne of the most immersive photographic works at Terra Cognita was Carlos Irijalba’s Inertia. Not only visually so, but also technically. The entire video is not free to embed, but you can watch an excerpt on Vimeo.

Snow Circles

This January Colorado’s Rabbit Ears Pass was turned into an artist’s canvas. Check this video of Sonja Hinrichsen’s take on a crop circle winter wonderland.

Clock of clocks

This clock by Christiaan Postma consists of more than 150 separate clocks, each of them playing a role in a hybrid typographic/hand device to tell what time it is.

Christiaan explains the concept:
The word “three” completely appears when it’s exactly 3 o’clock and will then transform again as time passes. The word “four” begins to appear and at exactly 4 o’clock the word “four” is clearly visible. The word “three” is by then totally vanished and no longer readable.

Hard to visualize? Watch the accelerated animation below to see how it works.

Zimoun

BLDG blog posts a lovely compilation video of swiss artist Zimoun‘s work.

Titles like 200 prepared dc-motors, 2000 cardboard elements (2011) and 121 prepared dc-motors (2011) may be factually descriptive but you need to watch the video to see what they mean.

Don’t be afraid

There has been a lot of controversy about first person shooters. There’s a not much of a gray area in discussions on the topic. Giant Sparrow’s concept may be all black and white, but this first person shooter may just be received with a lot more nuance than other titles in its genre.

The Unfinished Swan is a first-person painting game set in an entirely white world. Players can splatter paint to help them find their way through an unusual garden.
