Little Big Berlin

Born and brought up in Berlin I love it when someone portrays the city in a way that shows other people why I love it so much.

This video here uses the photographic tilt-shift effect which I’ve seen in videos (and photos of course) before.

But this one here is different as the maker pilpop didn’t just rely on effects. He has caught some brilliant little moments which lift the film onto another level and show that a city can have the greatest architecture but it is the people that makes it special.

Eyes Wide Open

Wow. I have never seen eyes photographed as beautiful as those by Suren Manvelyan.

What really amazes me is that these images almost seem to be in 3D. You can really tell that the pupils are not just flat surfaces but crater like constructions. I almost feel like I m looking at a vulcano of a distant planet.

Incredible Movie made out of 35.000 Photographs

SCINTILLATION from Xavier Chassaing on Vimeo.

 

 

I just discovered this beautiful video by Xavier Chassaing. He said it’s been made with 35.000 single photographs combining “an innovative mix of stop motion and live projection mapping techniques.”

Well that still leaves me with a lot of questions. I would love to know exactly how he’s done it. A making-of video would be brilliant.

But maybe it’s better to be left in wondering awe like a little child watching a magician for the first time.

Enjoy!

Twisted Reality: Public Intimacy

 

Street art – I know it’s all over the media – and the topic is nothing new. And it’s been milked to the max by profit hungry art dealers and artists themselves. But I don’t care – I welcome anything that puts a splash of colour, fun and/or meaning onto the grey urban walls – anything that is not another bloody advertising poster.

I especially like stuff that modifies the places around us and turns them into dreamlike spaces for a while, where rules of our reality are twisted and bended.

This guy mentalgassi has done a project called Public Intimacy where he has pretty much done that. I particulary like the phone booth turned shower.

These kind of innocent and cute projects always remind me that nothing in life should be taken too serious. Life can be so great – if we want it to be.
