kevinbabbles: I made a mini-love letter to the people of Los Angeles in the form of a 30 second video. First is a clip of today’s police brutality march where 1,000+ of us shut down some streets of downtown LA. It was partially in solidarity with events in Ferguson, but mainly in memory of the […]

Happy Cesar Chavez day! I remember when I was growing up near  Salinas Valley  I would always see the “No Grapes” bumper sticker and in my child’s mind think “Why? I love grapes."  Human and animal rights activist, I’m taking some time today to think about his work and his vision for our world. . […]

I shot this video last summer in Manhattan’s Lower East Side of my father’s first apartment when he came to America. Even though the Lower East Side has transformed into a trendy neighborhood of galleries and restaurants, these few blocks were still a little run down with mostly new immigrant families still living there. I […]

So many great American Analog Set songs, been listening to this one on repeat. Miss these guys making new albums. Lyrics here (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)

This beautiful video is made by artist Jason Mitcham. He created it by making thousands of tiny alterations on one painting. Such an American sensibility, where the land itself is an actual cash crop made to develop and bulldoze, rinse, repeat. via Beautiful Decay (Source: https://player.vimeo.com/)

Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames. “If we are always arriving and departing, it is alsotrue that we are eternally anchored. One’s destinationis never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.” ― Henry Miller (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)

http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf I recently was turned onto Beatrice Coron’s work. She’s a French artist who lives in NY and makes amazingly epic cut paper panoramas of cities, landscapes and people. There are many narratives in her work that are personal and mythological. She even illustrated Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities.  I would love to see her […]

lowqualityfuture: mightythylacine: I’ve always thought of cities as machines. This concept take this simile a bit further. From the site: “The Clockwork City is an urban structure concept whereby entire districts move, thus negating the need for transport systems. Need to get to work? Wait 10 minutes until your work place moves into walking distance” […]

lowqualityfuture: Dubai HD-City of Skyscrapers(1080p) (by dunaparty) Cool inside view of driving through Dubai. It’s such a futuristic looking city.  Unreal. It looks like a computer model of a city, or like it was all built last week. Still a little dubious about Dubai, but I’d love to go there and check it out. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)

Had a really great time last night at Mark Moore Gallery’s Second Fridays Summer Screening Series. Try saying that 10 times fast! Saw a lot of great, funny, inspired videos but the first video shown was the one that stuck with me. It’s by artist McLean Fahnstock and is called Grand Finale. It’s all the […]

http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf Thanks to Brian watching TED talks has become sort of the equivalent of watching reality TV in our house; habit forming but without the shame. This one by artist Janet Echelman gave me some audible gasp moments and she didn’t even have to get drunk, fall down and show her underwear to do it! […]

This is a driving nowhere on a sunny day with the sunroof open kind of song.
