Sounds of Threads

Dezeen Music Project: French artist Bertrand Lanthiez created this audiovisual installation by projecting white light along criss-crossing woollen threads.


Called Sounds of Threads, the installation comprises strands of wool stretched between four wooden stands, with beams of white light projected across them in time to a piece of music.


“I was interested in questions of how sight can enhance hearing, or also disturb our balance in perceiving a multimedia-based bodily experience,” said Lanthiez.


“I tried to demonstrate the power of our senses when they interact simultaneously,” he added.

Mirror City Timelapse

A beautiful video combining Timelapse photography and the simplicity of a kaleidoscope. Result of years of work. Amazing!!
Created by Michael Shainblum

When I first started Mirror City, I wanted to create a video that was completely out of the norm. I wanted to showcase something unique and artistic, which takes Timelapse photography into a more abstract direction. Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.
