Everynone strikes again. “Symmetry” is an amazing 3 minute long tribute to symmetries in life. In cooperation with Radiolab, which in case you don´t the Radiolab show yet, is one of the most interesting and entertaining radio podcasts around. Check them at http://www.radiolab.org/.
“The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?”
In Magnetic Movie, Semiconductor have taken the magnificent scientific visualisations of the sun and solar winds conducted at the Space Sciences Laboratory and Semiconducted them.
With Magnetic Movie, Semiconductor have tapped into a new and ancient aesthetic of turbulence. We can hear it in the sounds of natural radio-naturally-occurring electromagnetic signals from the earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere-that course through Magnetic Movie, at times animating the animation, a quick nervous response condensed into static.

“Banksy’s work now reportedly changes hands for millions. But he puts up his street art for free. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got your hands on one of these? Does it mean you’ve found a winning lottery ticket or just scraped some worthless crap off a wall? Going up against the art establishments, critics, auction houses, gallery owners and authentication boards in a quest for the elusive meal ticket, two filmmakers unwittingly gatecrash the murky and protective world of Banksy. How to Sell a Banksy raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day true story.”
Many of you probably already know the blog “The Sartorialist“..it is one of the most successful fashion Blogs written by Scott Schumann. My girlfriend is often inspired by his photographs and occasionally i check it myself. What´s it about? He says:
“I started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people that I saw on the streets of New York that I thought looked great. When I worked in the fashion industry (15 years), I always felt that there was a disconnect between what I was selling in the showroom and what I was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life.”
He does a great job and the short and well shot documentary gives us some great insight about his process and the way he approaches people on the street.
