Peter Brings The Shadow To Life



A really great video by Joe Pease that makes the shadow of the skater the main star of this one. It's quite hypnotic watching the shadow's form change and perform tricks so effortlessly.

William Miller's Damaged Polaroids


Photojournalist William Miller bought an old Polaroid SX-70 instant camera at a local yard sale. After a few snaps he realised that the camera was malfunctioning, but instead of tossing it in the nearest river he began to take an interest in the way the camera turned normal shapes and colours and spewed them out into a series of abstract, sprawling landscapes. Below are some of the beautiful images from his Ruined Polaroids series.

Sunless '97 - Body Weather



I'm really enjoying this tune by London duo Sunless '97. There's a lot to take in (synths! saxes! steel drums!) but it has a really great laid back party vibe. Looking forward to hearing more from these guys.

Cornelia Konrads


German artist Cornelia Konrads creates gravity-defying site-specific installations in public spaces and gardens around the world. Stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, giving the beautiful illusion of weightlessness amongst nature.

Caine's Arcade



"This is the story of a nine year old boy named Caine who built an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his father’s used auto part store. A dollar gets you four plays, and two dollars gets you a five-hundred turn FUN PASS. Business was slow until independent filmmaker Nirvan Mullick spotted the arcade and plotted to change Caine’s life forever."

Part Company - BABAR



Here's some candy for your eyes and ears on a Friday morning. French band Part Company have a little bit of that MGMT peyote-pop thing going on, which is translated perfectly in a great desert video featuring elephant masks, coloured dust fights and gratuitous boob shots. Oh yeah this is probably NSFW. Lotsa boobs.

H/T to Mr Knudsen for this one.
