As seen on MTV2/Sucker Free’s “Wild Tour Story” Segment, even when you touring with Kanye things don’t always go according to plan.

“The film Nearness explores interacting without touching. With RFID [radio frequency identification] it’s proximity that matters, and actual contact isn’t necessary. Much of Timo’s work in the Touch project addresses the fictions and speculations in the technology. Here we play with the problems of invisibility and the magic of being close.”
With RFID technologies being tested in upcoming products today, be prepared to be introduced to its useful and (what will become) practical means of “interacting without touching” in the near future.

This is just plain ol’ trippy.
Really dig the art direction in this music video. Great song, too.
Flight Patterns by Charlie McCarthy. This work of art was made by shooting “long exposures of bugs under a street light.” Basically, McCarthy set up a camera on a tripod and let it record with a long shutter speed. This is often used when capturing images at night time. His simple idea of capturing bugs flying by a street light is mesmerizing.
The 2010 Tachyon XC camera system by Tachyon packs a ton of tech. It is a shock/waterproof system; it records onto SDHC cards (ranges 4GB-32GB of storage); it has a 90mm lens; and the battery lasts up to 12 hours. The Tachyon camera is meant to be placed on your head (via a bulky mount) and record your surroundings. Here’s the cool part: the user has the option of combining the power of two cameras and the head mount to record 3D video! The entire package (including the two Tachyon cameras, a head mount, 3D glasses, and editing software will cost you $379.99. The single camera package costs 179.99. Not too shabby for an innovative camera package that enables creatives to shoot and edit 3D video, right? Tachyon plans on shipping out the camera system no later than September 16. With YouTube now experimenting with user-created 3D video and film-makers like James Camerson utilizing 3D effects in their movies, this 3D-recording technology might just catch on in the near future.
Check out the video above titled “New York in 3D.” 3D glasses are required for the intended effect, though a trippy, psychadelic adventure can be had as well without the glasses. The creator: Here is a video I did in NY with the new 2010 Tachyon XC cam and its amazing 3D technology. I put it together with Final Cut, and had a blast with all the 3D footage. The camera is actually 2 2010 XC’s out together with the Tachyon XC 3D mounting system. Tachyon has also produced its own 3D editing software to align the files as well as its own 3D glasses. I was amazed with the footage from the Times Square night scenes, the clarity and color was amazing. The 2D footage as well is fantastic, thanks to the new light sensor in the cam. Also, check after the break for a second video captured in 3D by the camera.
By Jul & Matt. This is fantastic art. Keep it coming.
“The PEN Story” was created by the professional photographers at Olympus. Although the video is somewhat of an advertisement for the new (and very classy looking) Olympus EP-1 camera, it is still nonetheless a beautiful work of art. The photographers used a process called stop motion which is ”an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.” I happen to be a big fan of stop motion photography; look out for future posts with more creative and inspiring visuals utilizing the stop motion technique. The song used in this video is called “Down Below” by Johannes Stankowski.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Olympus EP-1 camera, check out the product page.
