Time Lapse Video: Music and visuals work beautifully together~Samuel Cockedey

Inter // States is a collaboration between Paul Frankland, aka Woob and king of time lapse photography – Samuel Cockedey.

Samuel is a French artist based in Tokyo. He has only  recently got involved with the art form of time lapse but has already amassed a body of work that contains some of the most spectacular time-lapse shots of the city of Toyko.  His striking visuals focus on the neon / sci-fi – esque urban landscape of Tokyo after dark and the music includes a specially worked arrangement of the title track from the Woob album Paradigm Flux.

Visual artist Hisham Akira Bharoocha amazing drawings and collages

Visual artist Hisham Akira Bharoocha amazing drawings and collages | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography.

Hisham's newest works deal with the melting together of images that happens in the mind when one is meditating, dreaming, day dreaming, or going about their daily lives. Bharoocha likes to observe how his visions and feelings all blend together to create a massive medley of images and vibrations that one can feel in the body. Hisham tries to create works that show the absurdity and logic of how each mind works, what kind of relationships it creates between experiences and images that we absorb through our senses moment by moment.

Playful! Nerdy Dirty: Illustrations For Nerds In Love by Nicole Martinez

Playful! Nerdy Dirty: Illustrations For Nerds In Love by Nicole Martinez | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Art director and designer from Bostin, Nicole Martinez, has created these love-filled geeky illustrations to express love in nerd’s style.

“My boyfriend and I came up with the phrase ‘nerdy dirty’ a while ago because we would say such nerdy things when we were trying to be romantic. So when I got the urge to design something sweet I could only think of things like ‘Arota tell you how much I love you’. Hence, Nerdy Dirty posters were born.”

Pogo:Remix of Disney Animation and Songs | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Pogo-aka Nick Bertke...This is the video for my track 'Bloom', a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from 'Sleeping Beauty', and a series of chords from 'A.I: Artificial Intelligence' to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.

I used Adobe Audition to record my samples, FLStudio to arrange them, and Sony Vegas to create the video for the track.

So very delightful, whimsical and clever!

Tom Grant's musings on Michael Fullan's “Choosing the Wrong Drivers for Whole System Change”

Tom writes-'Fullan forces us to look critically at the elements of change and which ones work in our present context and in our present circumstances. He clearly articulates that there are many elements of change and that at times all have influence on large scale change. However he cautions us that if used alone or as central drivers, they may get us to a better place systemically but not as far as we think we need to go.'
