The Time Machine in alphabetical order, by Thomson & Craighead:
“The Time Machine in alphabetical order is a complete rendition of the 1960’s film version of HG Wells Novella re-edited by us into alphabetical order from beginning to end. In doing so, we attempt to perform a kind of time travel on the movie’s original time line through the use of a system of classification.”

I just stumbled upon wendyvainity’s Youtube channel.
Wendy is an australian woman who describe herself as a “cat lover/ try hard gardener/ port adelaide power supporter/ freeware addict”. She posts some crazy, hypnotizing 3d video experiments in which a virtual avatar of herself dances, sings and acts.
Her freedom of expression, irony and sense of identity are awesome and refreshing. If this is amateur culture, we totally dig it.
Another great video by Marco Cadioli (aka Marco Manray):
“How will be Gloogle Earth without Earth?
Over Data is a machinima shot in Google Earth, but the images of the Earth are extinguished, annulled in a white neutral surface. Data, information and icons are the only ones that design, define and create the new landscape.”
New Me, by Aleksandra Domanovic…
Cassandra Jones takes photographs she finds online and stiches them together to form animations like this Eadweard Muybridge homage:
“After Muybridge” is a loop made from 12 stock photographs that are sequenced to re-create the locomotion of a galloping horse. The animation was modeled after one of Eadweard Muybridge’s most famous motion studies called “Daisy”. I sifted through over 5,000 digital images to find 12 that matched his original photos.
The Internet allows me to access the over-abundance of everyday photographs, taken of everyday things, in every possible position. By collecting enough images of any one thing, including a running horse, I can place them in an order to re-invent or re-animate life.”
John Cage performing Water Walk on a game show in 1960. Incredible stuff.
