Gramophontastic Video Contest

  said the gramophone video contest, fan videos

Said the Gramophone has recently concluded their “Wonderful Video Contest In which people make films for their favourite songs”, and there are some great ones in there.

Yet another fine example of what creative people can do with a little encouragement, some basic equipment, and possibly an all-consuming lust for prizes.


City Sculpting

urban art; demolition sculptures; new art

Here’s an interesting concept via the always fascinating Bldgblog. It’s yet another definition for art and another unlikely medium: apartment blocks, offices, run-down buildings. I’m not sure how likely the physics are for something like this, but I would be willing to bet that if you were able to make structurally-sound ap-art-ments, you could get the whole art-student demographic in the city to line up at the leasing office.

More interesting paper art here. This time from Chris Natrop. I especially like the use of shadows as a definite part of the composition.


Art in Motion

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006


    “…Theo Jansen is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic material of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind. Eventually he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives.”

The moving art of Theo Jansen is simply spectacular. The basic and mundane materials that he uses to create are metamorphosed into giant living beings that seem to have minds of their own. They crawl, walk, undulate, roll, flap, and fly. These creations are made even more impressive when one realizes that they are powered and manipulated by wind alone. No engines, wires, electricity, or microchips; only the magic of physics and brilliant design. To me, this is completely delightful. You’ll have to see the video clips to fully appreciate the way the amazing complexity of these works can give birth to such simple beauty.

  Paper Art  

Here is some very creative paper art from Peter Callesen.
It seems that most of them are done out of a single large piece of paper, and planned in advance in such a way that the final product is still all a single connected sheet.
Quite talented.


Obviously this didn’t bother me since I read the first book, too, but I don’t think a new reader should jump into this series here. It ties heavily into book review guidelines The Children’s Book Review is the parents, publishers, and authors source for children’s book reviews on both new and classic children’s literature and books.
The academic essay is generally written in response to a question. You are expected to present a point of view (expressed in a thesis statement) that is informed The same can be said about the generic essay.
