Room Portraits by Menno Aden

This work may look like something we have seen on The Operable Window before. Here.


This is still amazing work.  Done with single images as apposed to the hundreds that make of he work of Aneta Grzeszykowska and Jan Smaga, the images of Menno Aden give us a surreal look the the spaces we live.

Mr.Overtime Rotoscoped

One of the most interesting forms of animation is the Rotoscope.  Somewhere between live action and illustration the process never seems to fail in producing spectacular visuals.  Recently I came across a new video that takes this technique twists it then flips it then throws is out.  Watch the Video and then the Making Of below. Enjoy.

Beetle Wrestler

Have you ever wanted to have a wrestling match with a Rhinoceros Beetle (the strongest animal in the world)?  Me too.


Well thanks to designer Chris Woebken  this is now totally possible.





With the help of a head mounted apparatus one can now interface with the mighty Beetle on the field of combat.
