touch wood

i am not normally a fan of television commercials.  a team has to be extremely punchy, witty and artistic to move me in any way.  so you will understand my admiration for the precision, dedication and utter genius of this japanese smartphone commerical. the team engineered a massive xylophone to run down the slope of a forest hill. a wooden ball, rolling down the length of said instrument plays Bach’s jesu, joy of man’s desiring! amazing – yes.

Some pigeons are more equal than others

german artist julius von bismark teamed up with swiss photographer julian charrière in this controversial live art installation: a “pigeon-apparatus” was created for the Venice Architecture Biennial on a city rooftop. When the birds flew into it, they were trapped and airbrushed various colors in non-toxic paint before being released back over the city.”
