Lost & Found // #05


Lost & Found is our weekly Wednesday morning round up of articles, mp3’s and videos from around the net. Otherwise known as stuff we wish we had made, but didn’t because we watched all 6 Saw movies in a row.

Arnaud Jourdain
The video below, by Arnaud Jourdain, is a time lapse animation showing five years’ worth of graffiti at 5a Rue de Verneuil in Paris. By shooting thousands of high-resolution photos over a period of years, the filmmakers were able to reconstruct the graffiti process and even separate out layers of graffiti, creating an impressive 3D effect, seeming to fly through exploded layers.

Hate By Numbers – Wayne Gladstone
Hate by numbers is my favourite regular feature on Cracked.com, Wayne Gladstone makes me happy.

The Surreal & Colorful World of  Marco Escobedo
Graphic designer Marco Escobedo’s art focuses on the surreal and fantastic, it uses heavily contrasting and richly saturated colors to create moments that look like they could be from another planet. While often producing quite serious and dark pieces, there are also hints of playfulness and humor to his creations. Find out more here

Where The Wild Things Are
Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with screenwriter Dave Eggers to bring Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s classic to the big screen. Somewhere between dating Karen O and running VBS, we think this turned out pretty awesome.
