I’ve been very busy at the moment with the final project of my second year so I have had barely any spare time to stop and relax! However, I only have about a week left so I’ll be able to work on a few more interesting things to show you later on. But for now, here are two music videos that I absolutely adore, not just because they look good, but because of the massive effort that went into them both.

Yesterday I came across the most adorable social experiment ever, a project by Tisch School of the Arts student Kacie Kinzer called Tweenbots. She’s created a small cardboard robot that can only travel directly forwards, placing it at the Northeast of Washington Square Park in New York and relying on passing strangers to guide it to the Southwest Corner.
It’s really lovely to see that it didn’t get vandalised or just picked up and taken home and it did actually make it across the park.
Read more about the project at tweenbots. You should also watch the video, the accompanying music makes it’s 10 times more adorable. There’s also a page where you can take a peek at other robots she is creating for more experiments, which I can’t wait to read about!

Brock Davis or Laser Bread on Flickr, makes some super cool things everyday. You should definitely check his work out on Flickr or at his website, itistheworldthatmadeyousmall.com. He has some quite clever and funny ideas, here are some are my favourites pieces he’s done so far:

I’d like to show you one of my favourite Flickr contacts, littlehonda70.
I originally found him through the Through the Viewfinder Flickr community but once I came across the rest of his photostream I was hooked! The colour quality, the 6×6 cropping, the out of focus blur, it’s all very aesthetically pleasing. My favourites definitely have to be his in the seaside town series, they make me daydream about going travelling in the sunshine! You have no idea how much I crave being able to do that right now!

For my course at uni I have to keep a small A6 notebook which I keep all my notes in of what my lecturers have said at crits or just in general to me for each project for future reference. However it’s kind of turned into a mini journal of what’s going on beyond crit times as well because I like to draw in it so it’s not just full of quickly written scrawl of what someone has said.
