Kina Kasuya Grannis is a Japanese American guitarist and singer-songwriter. She grew up in Mission Viejo, California, and it was here where her love for music began. In April 2011, Grannis launched her first world tour. She is back at it this time in Europe come Feb 2012. Do hope she is able to come back to Vancouver!

The video stats are as follows-it took:

22 months
1,357 hours
30 people
2 ladders

It is absolutely brilliant along with her very melodic song. A perfect blend of music and visuals

Gotta Love it~Vancouver Travel Film circa 1960

An uber cheesy tourism video for Vancouver from 1960. The image quality isn’t great and there are some scratches and abrupt jumps, but that's what makes it so authentic...and loveable.

Parents & Teachers Resources: Privacy Protection on the Web | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Young people today are sophisticated users of the Internet, using this medium with ease and enthusiasm. While the opportunities are tremendous, we want to ensure that they understand the impact that these technologies can have on their privacy, and provide them with tools and information they need to make smart decisions.

This is why we developed a video and teaching lessons to encourage young people to learn how to build a secure online identity so they don’t put themselves at risk.

Brilliantly powerful~Running the Numbers by Chris Jordan

Brilliantly powerful~Running the Numbers by Chris Jordan | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Chris Jordan is an artist based in Seattle, Washington.

Many of  Jordan's works are created from photographs of garbage and mass consumption, a serendipitous technique which started when he visited an industrial yard to look at patterns of color and order. His industrious passion for conservation and awareness has brought much attention to his photography in recent years. Jordan uses everyday commonalities such as a plastic cup and defines the blind unawareness involved in American consumerism. His work, while often unsettling, is a bold message about unconscious behaviors in our everyday lives, leaving it to the viewer to draw conclusions about the inevitable consequences which will arise from our habits. ***Be sure to ZOOM IN to his photographs-BRILLIANT!

Retro Narrative Fiction Photos of American Culture~Matt Henry

Retro Narrative Fiction Photos of American Culture~Matt Henry | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Always with an eye for a good story, UK-based photographer Matt Henry creates narrative fiction photographs that center around 1960′s/1970′s American culture. The images have a historical slant to them as well, as Henry explores what an abandoned suburban home might have looked like after a family sought shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Henry makes it clear that his work isn’t about sadness or grievance, however, as is the case with his King series. He delves into the real-life tale of one of America’s biggest music sensations, Elvis.

 

“The story is as much about the death of Elvis as its impact on an Elvis fan. I’m also interested in how the representation of something in whatever form (jigsaw, newspaper story, etc.) can somehow carry the power of the original, or even come to enhance that power.

10 Funniest GIF Trends of 2011 | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

The Internet has always had a love-hate relationship with animated GIFs. Long a telltale sign of an archaic website, the bandwith-eating multi-image animations were a cause of annoyance rather then entertainment. Well, the GIF’s reputation is changing. The animated images are snapping back into the mainstream and are becoming a popular form of shareable media.

Yuri Zupancic ~ Microchip Paintings

Yuri Zupancic ~ Microchip Paintings | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

American artist,  currently living and working in Brisbane, Australia, Yuri Zupancic transforms microchips into beautiful, tiny pieces of artwork.

From animals to scenes from nature or human beings, the Kansas native creates detailed paintings all on a miniature scale of a single square inch.

His motivation for his surreal microchip creations?

"'Smaller and Faster' is the new 'Bigger and Better' and that applies to communications as much as to commodities," Zupancic said.

"Computers provide ways to share passionate thoughts, yet the hardware itself seems cold and sterile ... so I paint life into it."
