A Good Life, Too: Alonzo Clemens

I am always amazed by the ability of individuals to overcome difficult circumstances. This man is an incredible artist, and his story is one you should not miss. For my sculpture students: there are some great sculpting demos in this short film.

Inuit Throat-Singing Sisters from Canada

In our culture, technology reigns. Even now, you are reading a blog, most likely from a computer or a cell phone. In such a technological culture, how do we retain our heritage? Some things, such as throat-singing, are oral traditions handed down from one generation to the next. How can we keep our traditions and our culture, while allowing ourselves to delve into the never-ending realm of the technological? Does your family have any traditions that you would like to pass onto future generations, and if so, how will you preserve them?

This short film by Murat Sayginer reminds me of Salvador Dali and David Hockney's artwork. Even so, it creates a new experience. One that both my photography and sculpture students can learn from.

Why Do I Study Physics?

While searching for the latest, greatest, art-related film to show to you all, I found this fun little stop motion animation. Whether you are "right-brained" or "left-brained", this short film is a treat.
