Hell yeah. I showed this to my four-year-old daughter the other night and she was just as blown away as I was.

Its almost impossible to track down the number of different URLs that a given cool thing may be listed under. Nature of the beast I guess.

It was also mentioned here. I'll always remember that thread because of this comment in it. Yes, it is cool.

I missed it all previous times, thanks Amber.

For some reason, I was reminded of Laurie Anderson.

Thanx amberglow....I missed it last time.
It's like watching charcoal at highspeed. Simplistic and calming. Impressively unique.

This reminds me a bit of Don Hertzfeld's new piece, The Meaning of Life. Saw it in Austin over the weekend at an animation festival. If you dig this, you'll definitely enjoy Hertzfeld's short film.

Well...not only that...there's almost nothing electronic about it, except a light bulb.

Any link to the video ? I'd like to bring to some people with 56k that will like it a lot (yes there's still people with 56k :)

Very nice performance artist and art indeed, the music fits well or vice versa.

About the electronic ..well xcept the project I don't see much electronic..but it was a source of inspiration ..have you ever heard of metallic sands and dusts ? :P
