…Robbie Cooper can turn porn into art?


Robbie Cooper’s latest project, called Immersion:Porn, definitely earns its NSFW tag.

Featuring videos of people watching porn and interviews with those people about their experiences with porn, why they watch porn, and where they watch porn, it’s a pornapalooza, but it’s also a rather interesting and honest look at an often taboo subject.

Just don’t forget to turn the sound down on this one:

…The clouds glow at night under airplanes?

Glowing Night Video

On a recent flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco, Flickr user Ettubrute noticed that the night lights from the cities were flowing beneath the clouds and making them glow in a spectacular and ethereal way: “It was really seeing the impact of urban environments from a different perspective.”

To capture and share this experience, he set up an improvised stabilizer mound out of bags, pillows and blankets for the camera to sit on, and took about three hours of photographs that he condensed into about a minute of time lapse video.

…It’s Website Wednesday: The Places We Live?

The Places We Live

The Places We Live is a fascinating look at some of the poorest slums on earth.

It’s the work of Jonas Bendiksen, who traveled to Caracas, Venezuela; Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya; Dharavi, Mumbai, India; and Jakarta, Indonesia from 2005 to 2007, documenting life in these slums, and capturing images of the diversity of personal histories and outlooks found in these dense neighborhoods that, despite commonly held assumptions, are not simply places of poverty and misery.

Yet slum residents continuously face enormous challenges such as the lack of health care, sanitation, and electricity.

The site does really well at simulating the experience of living in the slums, and you can listen to a narration of numerous different stories told by the people who lived them as you examine their home and listen to the sounds of the slums all around you.

In addition to the website, Jonas has also published a book that includes 20 double-gatefold images, each representing an individual home and its denizens’ stories.

…Auditorium is a game that will amaze you?


Auditorium is part game, part graphic equalizer, and according to the game’s creators, “is really all about the experience, both visually and aurally.”

Really, it’s a very difficult to describe, but very fun to play game where the object is to control The Flow, “a masterful stream of many tiny audio-visual particles”.

Give it a try and see what you think, because I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
