    [NEW VIDEO ALERT! Here's our latest video essay https://vimeo.com/delvetv/bananas-sardines-sharks] It was the change that no-one saw coming: the idea that we could take a book, a painting or a song and send it through cables and wires and even thin air to the other end of the world - and it would be identical on the other side. But this idea underpins everything about the Information Age we live in. How did we make such a mind bending transition into the digital world? And how does it work? It turns out it's all based on a concept that is surprisingly beautiful in its simplicity. This short video essay explores what that idea is and tells you about the man who figured it all out. Computers are everywhere and control almost every aspect of our lives. In the next 6 minutes you'll find out how they really work. // DELVE DEEPER: Curious?

    • Juggle & Cut

      In the autumn of 1998, a profound tragedy echoed through a small Michigan farming town and twisted the well laid plans of a young prodigy in strange and inspired ways. Click here to share Andy's story on Twitter: http://bit.ly/ZDdG50 ____________________ The Juggle & Cut Original Soundtrack is available for $2 here: bit.ly/Y0QGOt. The delivery format is high quality m4a files via Dropbox sent to your PayPal email address. Soundtrack features 5 tracks, and runs roughly 10 min. ____________________ Far and away in the chilling northern reaches of Michigan farm country lived 16-year-old Andy Phelps: an anomalous prodigy with a colorful resume. Andy juggled knives and fire for mass audiences, hand-made wood furnishings, thundered his motorcycle through the Midwest, captained his hockey team to a State Championship, and taught himself to unicycle and fire-breathe...all before turning seventeen. But late one autumn morning in 1998, Andy broke his neck and consequently lost the use of his hands and legs. Over a decade later, what should have been the last chapter in the life of a fabled prodigy became the first page of a new story, where against all odds he became the only known quadriplegic in an unexpected profession. ____________________ The process of bringing Juggle & Cut to life was one of the most challenging and ultimately rewarding projects I've ever been apart of; I hope you receive as much from hearing Andy's story as I did while assembling it. Many thanks to Andy's brother David Phelps, Eric Machiela, Eric Johnson, Wlad Marhulets, Adam Burd, Chad Terpstra, Seth Herman, and all of our incredibly generous Kickstarter supporters. We wouldn't be here now without every one of you.

All necessary safety precautions where taken to prevent the risk of a fire. We only shot after heavy rain (Cumbria gets alot of rain) and had a team of people standing by off camera. The steel wool we used burns out really quickly which made the risk of a fire extremely minimal.
