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.

the phone isn’t hard on the eyes either *wink*

a walk in the trees

how incredibly beautiful is this: a path in the forest by architect tetsuo kondo was a temporary installation in the kadriorg park near tallinn, estonia.

where giants fall…

this image renders me simultaneously awestruck and quietly sad…

pillow-fight in the woods

i treasure new music discoveries and recently my sister introduced me to australian band: the paper kites.  their song “featherstone” has a simplistically wonderful music video.  thanks for the introduction, squeak!

tree sketches

i love the idea and execution behind these tree drawings by british artist tim knowles. the perfect expression of nature art.
