Yule Log 2.0 -> Artist Project

Notes from site: “Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the traditional Yule Log through a collection of short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders. First televised in 1966 by WPIX-TV as a gift to viewers, the Log has since burned itself into our hearts.”

Closca -> collapsible helmet design

CLOSCA | Street style foldable bike helmet from Closca Helmets on Vimeo.

Nice collapsable bicycle helmet design coming from Closca. I like the flat cap look, not a bad option for those of us who have a tough time going with the traditional full-melon design …or gourd, depending on your vegetable preferences.

Astro -> Time Lapse + Motion Control

Add this to the list of gizmos that I’ll want to throw into my camera bag. Great idea. Simple. You can pledge your support for the production of this magnificent device on Kickstarter via the link below.

Notes from Kickstarter page:

“Astro adds pan & tilt movement to your camera, and it allows you to set up […]

LIFECYCLE -> 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC

This is a pretty creative take on your everyday 365 project. NYC based ‘Red Peak Branding Company’ chained a fully accessorized bicycle to a post and took a daily shot for a year. You can pretty much guess what happend, but it’s still fun to watch.

Project 12:31 -> Light Painting Photos

This creepy set of long exposure photos was created ‘light painting‘ style by using the animation from the ethically criticized photography project called the Visible Human Project that you may have heard news of back in 1993. Basically, the creators (Concept & Art Direction: Croix Gagnon, Photography: Frank Schott) captured these silky ghosts by playing […]

The Alphabet -> N9VE

This is a nice fluid alphabet animation created by Sardinia, Italy based designer N9VE, where each character is the initial letter of a font name. Pretty slick, I like the hand rendered, herky-jerky style. Click through to watch it on Vimeo.

My Photography Update -> Shooting with the Canon 7D

You may have noticed (probably not), that I haven’t posted in about a week. In case this is your first visit to circuitbreaks, that is a rare occurrence. I usually post 4-5 times a week… What have I been doing? Well, I took some time off around Labor Day, saw some bands at ‘Bumbershoot‘, the […]

Chromaroma Visualisations -> Mudlark

Chromaroma Visualisations from Mudlark on Vimeo.

This visualization ‘game’ is powered by one’s Oyster Card in and out of the London Tube. It records your movements and trips as well as tracking others, as a result promoting more use and exploration. At the very least the rendering is a visual treat. Have a look.

Favela Painting Project -> Praça Cantão in Santa Marta

The Fevala painting crew is working on a project called ‘Praça Cantão’ that’s currently taking place in Santa Marta, judging from the photos it’s coming along really well. The scale and overall coverage alone of this community art project makes it an amazing and inspiring feat. Be sure to check out the Fevala site where […]

Real Time/Anolog Digital Clock -> Maarten Baas

If you find it difficult to take your eyes away from the clock normally, then you may not want to view this memorizing animation by designer Maarten Baas. Each digital number graphic is updated “manually” by a very small figure who seemingly exists within the clock itself. Very fun, worth a view.

'So Far Seattle' -> Photo Book Concept

It’s been almost 6 months since I moved to Seattle, I’ve taken a lot of pictures of this amazing city so far. Two weeks ago I realized that I had almost 100 Seattle photos up on Flickr already, so I decided to test print an 84 page photo book to see how it would come […]

Rubikon2 -> Papercut Pin-hole Camera

The above paper cut-out pin-hole camera design called ‘Rubikon2’ is available here as a nicely designed and detailed 7 page .pdf to download and build for free. Designed by Jaroslav Juřica, the camera folds up to be 98 x 70 x 68 mm and can take some pretty impressive textured shots as seen on his […]

InBflat.net -> A Darren Solomon Project

InBflat is an interactive/online music and spoken word experiment created by Darren Solomon from NYC based melodic electronica group Science for Girls. The 4×4 stack of videos act as an interactive keyboard of sorts. As you play and pause each YouTube video you add and remove the complexity of your composition. It’s actually a lot […]

Lamebook.com -> a Facebook Project

Matthew Genitempo (from Public School) and Public School friend Jonathan Standefer have launched an experimental site called Lamebook. From notes on gotopublicschool.com -> “Lamebook is for fun. And the name says it all: They post lame pictures, status updates, and other gems they find on Facebook©.” They plan to post updates and new […]
