M.C. Escher's workspace and other arty videos
INSPIRATIONS from Cristóbal Vila on Vimeo.
Alice, this is mostly for you. Do you like M.C. Escher? I like what I've seen, but I've only seen the famous pieces. I love what they did here in this video. I wish it was my workspace.
If you like this, you should check out The Atlantic's videos. They have a video about famous art (e.g. Van Gogh, Munch, etc.) that's been made interactive by animation software. Super cool. And another on a new exhibition at the Amsterdam Museum. (Amsterdam has EXCELLENT museums! You only hear about Amsterdam from people who want to order weed off of a menu or see naked ladies in a store window, but seriously they have great art, gorgeous parks, and delicious soup--seriously. Have you been? Everyone should go. Ha. Alice, I can't remember if we've talked about this. If you go back to Switzerland next summer, you should talk your parents into stopping over.)
p.s. I should be sleeping, but someone across the courtyard is practicing what sounds like a cello. So I'm catching up on twitter.
