BSA Special Feature: Oh Joy! KUT Collective
Oh those cat tails, waiving around in the country breeze. The mechanism of plant pollination has fascinated most of us since we were children chasing dandelions as they spread their seeds across the via fluffy light messenger. It’s the same way that genetically modified crops travel to nearby farmers fields and transform our food supply into Frankenfood eventually, thanks to big agribusiness.
But this sharply made video distills the joy of the flying cattail plant and brings it to the city in a big way. For you who always strive for finding magic in the simplest of forms and you who knows how to observe the magic that is constantly around us.

3D Exhibition Part 2 by Brain Mash
It’s all depending on your perspective of course, and Siberia based Brain-Mash creates brain-melting illusory paintings in these videos of preparation for a 3-D “Selfie Exhibition”. A team of artists and designers with background in graffiti, Brain-Mash also does commercial work together. This 3-D work requires a rare set of skills, and frankly it would be cool to see more of this kind of stuff on the street that is not selling stuff. Obviously when done right, it is amazingly engaging.
