urban water art

This is pretty awesome... I'd say both  awesome and pretty.

Water Light Graffiti by Antonin Fourneau, created in the Digitalarti Artlab from Digitalarti on Vimeo.

The "Water Light Graffiti" is a surface made of thousands of LED illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw. Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.
The Water Light Graffiti project is a creation of Antonin Fourneau and his team. The art installation was done in Poitiers, France last July. I can imagine this LED board being installed on the seaside park behind the mall of asia. It's going to be a hit.

somebodies that i used to know

Taking a cue from Eric Whitacre and his fantastic TEDTalk A virtual choir 2,000 voices strong at TED2011, Belgian-Aussie singer and songwriter Gotye posted a similar video over last weekend, entitled “Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra.”

Says Gotye from his official YouTube channel:
Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered. Thank you to everyone who has responded to Somebody That I Used To Know via YouTube. It's truly amazing!

The video is a mashup of his smash hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” that stitches together the many individuals who’ve posted covers of themselves playing the song. Take out the words from this song, and it's still music to my ears. Beautiful; just beautiful.

the geek zodiac

Well, apparently there is such a thing as Geek Zodiac! It comes with a cool poster and you can search your zodiac assignment by year of birth. There's also an ongoing comic series featuring the characters; you might as well check that out, since it's pretty neat.

So, what's your sign? (It says that I am an undead/slayer, a soulful transcendental that appreciates the value of all life forms, whatever that means!)
