I met the Walrus
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack.
‘In 1999 we started collecting plastic debris—carrying it away by the bagful— all from Kehoe Beach, a remote stretch of the Point Reyes National Seashore, in Northern California. Certain items would catch our interest: milk jug lids, combs, toy soldiers, disposable lighters, cheese spreaders from lunch snack packs. We were attracted to things that would show by their numbers and commonness what is happening in the oceans around the world.’ www.beachplastic.com www.plasticforever.blogspot.com/
Motoblur Hotel by Klip
With high-powered video projectors and their patented video mapping technology, Klip Collective transformed the Art Deco façade of the Edison Hotel in Miami Beach into an eye-catching 3D illusion for the Super Bowl in February 2010. Using light and shadows, the front wall flies away revealing the building’s interior where room-like vignettes transpire. http://klip.tv/
