…Javan Ivey is a Stratastencil master?

Javan Ivey’s My Paper Mind video is an interesting experiment in using the Stratastencil technique that he developed to make a movie.

Based after the Stratacut technique, Stratastencil is an additive process that adds layers onto each other while still showing the layer before it.

The result is an interesting time lapse meets three-dimensional effect that looks quite cool:

…The Whale Hunt is powerfully beautiful?

The Whale Hunt

Each year, the Inupiat Eskimos of Barrow, Alaska are allowed to hunt 22 whales for their yearly supply of food.

To document and preserve this experience, Jonathan Harris tagged along and took 3,214 photographs over the course of seven days, showing everything from his taxi ride to the Newark airport to the butchering of the second whale caught by the hunters.

Photos were taken at five-minute intervals (even while sleeping with the aid of a chronometer), though this “photographic heartbeat” was quickened during moments of high adrenaline.

The end result is a beautiful and powerful tale of a people’s fight to survive using techniques developed by their ancestors long before there was any other way to eat.

…Contact Juggling is beautiful?

Contact Juggling is “a form of object manipulation that focuses primarily on the movement of objects such as balls in permanent contact with the body”. Bodyrolling, Palmspinning, and Isolationism are the three main schools of technique, and thankfully, none of schools requires clown costumes and flaming swords like normal juggling does. Think you can handle it?
