Ok, ok – this is a commercial. Blah-blah-blah decommodification. I get it, I really do. But please don’t let that stop you watching this gem from Thailand.
In just 3 minutes in manages to convey a lot about a couple of our favorite 10 Principals, especially the idea of Gifting – so give it look. Hats off to INW member CC Sallie for suggesting this post.
Learning how to be a Grim Reaper is hard, y’all! Especially if your inclinations lies in a more…creative direction. Still, if you can embrace your quirks, you can figure out how to make it work!
This week many people we know are in Nevada participating in Burning Man 2013: Cargo Cult. So we decided to start the week off with a little taste of the Burning Man experience.
Enjoy Dream – Art & Culture of Burning Man, a short film by Rich Van Every, cinematographer for the feature length movie Spark: A Burning Man Story.
A couple months ago we featured Soo Sunny Parks amazing installation piece “Unwoven Light” here on the Paisley. So I was excited to find this short feature by Walley Films about Park and the creation and installation of this piece at the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston, Texas.
She talks about her art, this piece, and artistic process. The best part of this video, though, is that it allows you a greater sense of the movement of “Unwoven Light” that isn’t quite captured by still photography. Go and watch – it’s gorgeous!
Andrew Huang’s award winning short film ‘Solipsist’ is a marvel of art and animation in which characters “struggle to physically converge with each other” and show “the way living things connect, the boundaries between them, and what happens when boundaries collapse.” Playful, colorful, a little disturbing, visually lush – a trio of scenes play out with a dash of surrealism and jot of whimsy.
Andrew Huang has since worked with Bjork and Sigur Ros. You can check out their collaborations at his website HERE.
We are ending this week with a short, stop motion animation for Professor Kliq’s ‘Plastic and Flashing Lights‘. Professor Kliq has been creating and recording music under a Creative Commons license for the past four years.
You can check out more of his work on his website HERE.
Today we are looking at the works of art and design of Super Nature Design – a “multi-discipline design company…specializing in interactive design, visual communication & media technology.” Although primarily a commercial design studio, the artists at Shanghai-based Super Nature also create sculpture that combines science, light, and audience interactivity.
After the jump there are more pictures of various Super Nature pieces as well as a short video that explains how each one works.
The Paisley Report will be taking a short break this week to tend to some behind the scenes stuff and recharge our batteries. Barring any unforeseen important announcements, we’ll be back next week with more art, video, poetry, event announcements, etc. In the meantime enjoy your Memorial Day and the rest of your long weekend.
Here is one of Shakespeare most famous speeches as performed by Kenneth Brannagh in an Oscar nomintated performance from 1989’s “Henry V”.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say “To-morrow is Saint Crispian.
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say “These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.”
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
