Ever wandered what happened after the credits began to role? Well now you know.
When I first started high school I looked at the final years and though, wow they look so old. But when it was my turn, I didn't think we looked anywhere near as old as they did. Surely we didn't, we hadn't changed a bit. It's only when I compare photos that I feel old. Photos are our constant reminders of age and I really love pieces that investigate this. Wasting time today I discovered the work of Tom Hussey. His fantastic series, Reflections, portrays old people looking at their younger selves in the mirror. They're something magical about them that made me stare for what seemed like hours. Each image has a story to tell, a story of a life.
There is a man called Jim. He paints things. In paint.
He encourages perfect strangers to make demands of his artistic ability and never fails to perform. Here are some of my favorites. To discover yours, find him on facebook and maybe even suggest something.
A lot of videos have been viewed recently...
I first discovered The Slow Mo Guys two years ago when I watched their slow motion bursting of a massive water balloon and have been hooked ever since. It's explosions and stunning high definition slow motion footage. What more could you want? Their recent video shows them exploding little bottles of paint. I challenge you not to get drawn in/hypnotized by this.
Beautiful and inspired cover of the Malvina Reynolds song.
Just discovered a brilliant exhibition that was hosted in Dublin last year. Sharp Suits asked various creative industry people to create posters of some of the worse feedback from clients, transforming their comments into some of these fantastic visualisations. Bellow are some of my favourites and you can see the whole collection here.
