not a new song by AIR, but might as well be.
Japanese artist Sekintani takes all the dirty thoughts you’ve had whirling in the cesspools of your mind and makes them into these crazy horror-movie collages. He’s definitely gone there and further: melting childrens’ faces, mutated breasts with Murakami-esque googley eyes and a hide-and-seek Pikachu peeking out of female genitalia.

Special Problems is a multi-disciplinary creative studio composed of Campbell Hooper, Darron Lilley and Joel Kefali. Their work fuses hand drawn, painted, video, animation and illustration–often recontextualized in new and surprising ways.

Artist Keith Loutit combined two techniques – tilt-shift and time-lapse photography – to create a “dreamy” impression of the monster trucks rally in Brisbane, Australia.

By running together 15,000 of these still photos – taken over three hours at the event in November – he created a magical time-lapse animation that has earned plaudits across the web. The self-taught artist’s videos, including footage of swimmers at Bondi Beach in Sydney produced using a similar technique, have attracted huge numbers of views on video-sharing websites such as Vimeo.
