Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Video on Wednesday 9 October 2013

This time-lapse video created by LSA’s Museum of Zoology walks us through the science of bat taxidermy. Don’t watch this if you’ve just eaten a heavy lunch. It’s a bit gross but highly fascinating and beautiful in a weird way. The bat skeleton is so delicate and detailed, like a piece of lace. I loved seeing […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Photography on Thursday 5 September 2013

This photo series is incredibly interesting and a little scary. It all started when  Nicolas Nixon decided to photograph his wife and her three sisters back in 1975. The shot was so good that the four sisters decided to make a tradition of it and posed in exactly the same position on a yearly basis for the next 36 years.

This ship measures in at 400 meters long, and has some staggering stats: It can hold 18,000 shipping containers which would be enough to fill up Times Square and the area below the deck is the equivalent size of a basketball court, football stadium and hockey arena combined.

Chasing the Storm: a time lapse video

Cormack O'Connor Contributor

By Cormack O'Connor in Video on Wednesday 20 March 2013

Sometimes I like to gaze up at the sky and slowly watch the clouds swirl around overhead, or look at the different ways that light hits portions of a vast valley. I think that’s what I like about nature: the fact that nothing is ever the same, nor will it ever be again. Therefore, I’m […]

The Tate Video Channel profiles Maurice Sendak

Matt Wicks Reader Find

By Matt Wicks in Video on Thursday 26 April 2012

What a gem of a find. Not only does the UK institution, Tate, collect and exhibit great art. They also make quality films about it, too. There’s hundreds on their channel for me to get my art fix and they seem to be constantly releasing new ones every week. I’ve seen artist studio visits, artist profiles, films by commissioned artists, and experimental stuff. I couldn’t choose a favourite, so you get two: one on author Maurice Sendak (Where The Wild Things Are) — above — and this really fun time-lapse — below.

Incredible time-lapse videos of Singapore, Moscow and Belarus

Matt Wicks Reader Find

By Matt Wicks in Video on Thursday 26 April 2012

I’m a sucker for a good time-lapse film, getting to see a new place in a new way. Producing a static shot of a single subject is tough enough, but this dude absolutely kills it by adding in seemingly impossible moves through his city of choice.
