Plots of the Everyday

Unendurable Line. "There’s simply no compelling way to describe this unusual short film from director Daihei Shibata which attempts to plot the movement of everyday objects such as a light switch or a spring as a real-time graph. Sibata explains this as a film that expresses “the various thresholds hidden in everyday life.” OK, interesting enough, but when paired with a score by the EX NOVO Chamber Choir—turn up the volume—it suddenly becomes completely amazing.

Forgot to add - the link mentioned in the bottom of the FPP is well worth checking out: "The Beauty of Mathematics - a visual demonstration of math in everyday life"

I don't know if I've ever seen such a succinct and striking illustration highlighting the narrative dimension that music carries and can imbue other things with.

I could have watched ninety minutes of that and not gotten bored. And the choir is the majority of the reason.
