I wanted to look at something different this week, and I find I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at YouTube – it constantly amazes me what one can find there. I followed a link to an artist who creates creatures powered by the wind. This was my inspiration for everything else I’ve found this week. Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests.
Ao this video led me to check out a couple others from BBC. I admit to watching Graham Norton – he is so funny, and he has great guests. Well, I love Helen Mirren. Here’s a great bit about being naked in film.
Then I decided to go and check out one of my favorite artists, Andy Goldsworthy. This video starts with a look at some of his work, and then it movesto a sixth grade project – kids making similar work out of natural elements found in their own school yard. (Kids and art – so close to my heart.)
Then I went searching for some Broadway stuff, and I found this great parody of Chicago, “Glossy Fosse.”
And a little more from Forbidden Broadway: Chicago…..
If you’ve ever done auditions of any kind….or if you just know horror stories, this is a riot…
Now this one is just downright feel-good – especially if you’re of a certain age-bracket that used to jitterbug…or so I’ve heard (snort…).
Some very cool science and math in this water droplet…..
I LOVE Vi Hart and her math doodles……watch the cool patterns that happen in this doodle….
Have a great week exploring the web!
