You’re nobody until somebody kills you

I saw this beautiful flickr group today. Simple concept: take a photo while [carefully] tossing your camera in the air. And voila! Trippy-ness! I’ve tried it a couple times and have yet to produce anything good looking… so in the meantime, enjoy the pool!


One of my friends mentioned a work by MIT’s very own Pia Lindman, which involved putting a video camera into a clear plastic ball, dropping it off a bridge and filming the result. The locations were places that had been politically and culturally separated by the water, but the piece swirls parts of water and both banks together into beautiful stills. I could only find one image here. (under Kollskar)

    You might as well strike the [carefully]… 😉

    Thanks for blogging my photo and linking to the group, by the way.
