1. Shot with Tamron 24-70 2.8 and Tamron 70-200 2.8

    Music: Bium Bium Bambalo by Sigur Ros
    Lyrics translated from Icelandic

    Bíum bíum bambaló,
    Bambaló and dillidillidó
    My little friend I lull to rest
    But outside, a face looms at the window

    When the mighty mountains
    Fill your chest with burning desire,
    I will play the langspil
    And soothe your mind

    Bíum bíum bambaló,
    Bambaló and dillidillidó
    My little friend I lull to rest
    But outside, a face looms at the window

    When the cruel storms rage
    And the dark blizzard crouches above,
    I shall light five candles
    And drive away the winter shadows

  2. TIMES SQUARE ARTS, TSAC & AIGA/NY PRESENT OCTOBER’S MIDNIGHT MOMENT

    The AIGA/NY invited a select group of New York designers to submit videos for October’s Midnight Moment. Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night.

    Of all the major muscles, the six that govern the movement of the eye are the most active and precise. Even when the body is at rest -- even asleep! -- the eye is in constant motion. So in honor of these most sportive of organs, Eye Test presents a visionary workout tape: An animation inspired by the abstract patterns and optical illusions utilized in eye exams, broadcast test patterns, color blindness tests and other objective measures of visual metrics.

    Founded in 1994 by Michael Rock, Susan Sellers and Georgianna Stout, 2x4 is a global design consultancy headquartered in New York City with satellite studios in Beijing and Madrid.

We identify and clarify core institutional values and create innovative, experiential, participatory and visually-dynamic ways to engage key audiences worldwide.

  4. A few frames still remain for purchase here: etsy.com/listing/166690806/randomly-selected-one-of-a-kind-laser

    "The New America" is a short animation in which every frame was created by laser engraving its unique artwork onto a solid block of maple. Once complete, the entire sequence of +800 frames was then photographed and assembled into this motion piece.

    This piece was funded by really kind friends and supporters via Kickstarter. After many unforeseen issues and delays, the entire process took about two years.

    As seen in the video, each frame is unique. Aside from the design of each frame itself being distinct, small variances that naturally occur in the laser engraving process as well as the different wood grain of each frame naturally created subtle shifts of the position of the artwork. An effect that I was particularly interested in and that could naturally be achieved in digital assembly, but that I was much more excited about re-creating with real objects.

    The music was carefully crafted by my amazing friends at World Gang - music.world-gang.com

    The abstract storyline showcased in this piece is a concoction of a variety of ideas and can perhaps be described as a union between concepts and experiments born during the Situationist movement and real life events experienced during the last few years in American society. Particularly the duality between the economic downturn and the shift in values and beliefs of many citizens.

    If you decide to purchase one of these frames, please note that I will randomly select one of them. Please, do not request a particular frame.

    * The credits at the end are for sale.

  5. Learn more about SHAKE the book: ShakeTheBook.com
    See the photography series: CarliDavidson.com

    Shake off all the worries on your mind and smile! The dogs featured in SHAKE are simply here to offer you a couple minutes of wonder and laughter. :)

    SHAKE is based on a photography series of the same name by co-director Carli Davidson. The work was inspired by her own dog Norbert, whose drool she regularly cleans off walls due to his own frequent shaking.

    In 2012 the Variable team stumbled upon Carli Davidson's photo-series-gone-viral, "SHAKE", and immediately fell in love with the images of dogs that she was able to capture. The combination of innocence and ridiculousness had us all hysterically laughing, and of course thinking; "We NEED to meet this Carli and bring her images to life!" Fortunately for us, Carli responded to our enthusiastic e-mail with an even more enthusiastic e-mail stating that she was totally down to collaborate and had a very similar vision! After months and many meetings of trying to figure out how we could even afford to make this film, we all just decided to empty our pockets, pull some serious strings, and make the video purely for the fun of it.

    If you are fans of the video, there is a very good chance you will enjoy the book as well. Check it out on the link below and please consider supporting our awesome friend Carli. This is her first book, and we are certain it won't be her last!

    *No dogs were harmed during the making of this film. We love animals. Please reach out to carlidavidson@gmail.com directly if you have any questions or concerns about the animal’s rolls and we will get back to you asap. Thanks in advance!
