Kubrick's Carpet

Here's a fascinating little promo from the UK television station "MORE 4" on Stanley Kubrick. It simulates a bizarre continuous shot behind the scenes of his 1980's classic "The Shinning"(which I still haven't sat down and watched but this promo makes me want to go rent it tonight). Its all done from Stanley's perspective. It was shot with Mr. Kubrick's favorite lens and filter. The music is great as well.

Dan McPharlin: Miniature "Mini Moogs"

This guy appreciates old synthesizers. His obsession has driven him to building extremely accurate cardboard miniatures. You can browse his work through his flickr site. Be sure to take a glance at his other flickr sets, he's a talented man.

TinEye Image Search

There is a new cool search engine for images called tineye, which will compare pixel data in your image to images in their database. It is in beta mode now so you need to request an invite, but I think it will be a great tool in the future to see if anyone is ripping off your works. You can search by uploading an image of your own or pasting a link to an image online. I uploaded a photo of my old vespa (the green one with the girl on my website) to see what would turn up. To my surprise it returned a black and white version of my vespa photo! It was on some kids myspace page in France! He's probably doing no harm in using it but it is a copyrighted image so I contacted photobucket, where the image is hosted, to see if they'll remove it. I'll see if the kid will reply to me and ask him to give me credit for the pic. Upload some of your work you have posted online and see if something turns up. This should work for drawings and graphic work in a jpeg format too.

Super rad superfad

I like it when others post because it reminds me to post! Here is some great video work from production company superfad.

Branislav Kropilak: Compare and Contrast

Another German artist. I enjoyed all of his photos. Its interesting to see what he decided to capture and build a series out of. His garages and billboard shots are my favorites. Site Link

Eno Henze: Generative German Genius

Eno Henze is a generative artist. Which means a lot of his art is generated by computer, often by code that uses randomization and extremely advanced creative mathematic algorithms, similar to what Joshua Davis does. Here's a link to Eno's site. This may only be neat to me cause I'm currently working in the realm of code meeting artist expression.
