lets get. small. real small. ( and inconceivably large )

buzzfeed’s “209 Seconds That Will Make You Question Your Entire Existence” doesn’t quite do that, but it does remind me of the 1977 powers of ten video written and directed by charles and ray eames which shows the the relative scale of the universe based on factors of ten. and yes, the title of this post is a reference to steve martin’s ‘lets get small’ comedy album which was also released in 1977, because that’s how my brain works.

Modern Ruin: Black Hole

Modern Ruin: Black Hole from Jeff Frost on Vimeo.

“An extended preview of a film constructed from 150,000 photographs that combines time lapse footage of riots, optical illusion paintings and stars. Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing. In the same way that you, life itself and even the laws of the universe are deeply paradoxical, so too are the realities pieced together to form this non-reality.
Every event depicted in Modern Ruin happened in naked reality, from the riots, to the optical-illusion paintings.”
