Vector Park: Addictive Curiosities

I can't remember if I've posted about this place yet, but I scoped it out a few years back and enjoyed it. I checked it out more recently and noticed he has added a few other "games". If you have some time on your hands you should defiantly explore these. I don't know exactly how to describe what vector park is providing, its a unique type of interactivity/story telling/puzzle game/animation/aesthetic modern artwork. Be sure and try out the links under your four choices of "games" as well. The artist I believe is named Patrick Smith, and he does some of the most interesting vector flash work I've seen yet.

Here's the link: VECTORPARK.COM

Knitted Animation

Here's a new tedious method of animation. When I first saw this my mind was boggled that someone had knitted each frame, but upon further investigation I realized it was machine-knitted frames. But its still impressive, and nice they didn't resort to a computer simulation of knitting. I love seeing new methods of animation. Reminded of Michel Gondry's amazing work.

I think it would have been neat to show the actual knitting happening as part of the animation at some point.

MISKA KNAPEK: 24 hour photographs

This concept is fairly simple, but I would have never thought of it. Read about how he creates these time-lapse single shots on his site. Also visit his flickr for more work.
