Putty Boy Strut

He did it again. No idea why, but it seems to be an honour to be listed as a director of Flying Lotus. His catalogue of good exceptional music clips is long. This is the brand new video for »Putty Boy Stru«, an animated masterpiece directed by Cyriak. His forthcoming album release »Until the Quiet Comes« features Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat, Thom Yorke & more. Don’t miss.

Green Pedestrian Crossing

Nice project from China: »The China Environmental Protection Foundation developed an outdoor campaign, displayed on the street, to creatively promote this message. They decided to leverage a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.

The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint. As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each „green“ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment.«

The Dive

What looks like a huge art installation, is in fact part of an unprecedented environmental disaster: »14th of October, 2010 at 12.25pm in Ajka, Veszprém county, Hungary: around a million cubic metres of toxic waste were released after the burst of the retaining wall in one of the reservoirs used for the accumulation of MAL aluminium company rubbish. The spilling reached two meters high and started a destructive race trying to release its energy, flooding Devecser and Kolontár villages. Ten human casualties were counted and the material damages were imposible to measure, including the destruction or irreparable deterioration of a big ammount of houses, the dissapearing of infrastructures and the poisoning of dozens of fields. The accident was fastly considered the biggest catastrophe of hungarian history. This photos have been taken six months after the accident when the silence takes the place of the headlines and just The Line is left.« Photography series by Palindromo Meszaros.

Willow – Sweater

Willow – »Sweater« directed by Filip Sterckx. The kings of over-staged music videos a.k.a. OK GO could get into serious difficulties. Guys, the competition never sleeps, certainly not in the highly complex cultural industry. I think »Sweater« is probably the coolest music video these days. Three beamers projecting on a floor and two walls: 3D mapping at its best!
