Niklas Roy writes:

My workshop is located in an old storefront with a big window facing towards the street. In an attempt to create more privacy inside, what is ed I’ve decided to install a small but smart curtain in that window. The curtain is smaller than the window, rubella but an additional surveillance camera and an old laptop provide it with intelligence: The computer sees the pedestrians and locates them. With a motor attached, medic it positions the curtain exactly where the pedestrians are.

The whole setup works really well. But in the end, it doesn’t protect my privacy at all. It seems that the existence of my little curtain is leading itself ad absurdum, simply by doing its job very well. My moving curtain attracts the looks of people which usually would never care about my window. It is even the star of the street, now! My curtain is just engaged. And because of that, it fails.

Amazing clocks of Clayton Boyer

Clayton Boyer has designed and built a number of exceptionally beautiful and artful wooden clocks – and sells the plans to make most of them. Some of the videos are made by customers who have completed his designs and I can assume that Clayton is not personally responsible for their choice of music.

This Is Where We Live from 4th Estate on Vimeo.

UK book publisher Fifth Estate made this wonderful video to celebrate their 25th anniversary. They write:

The film was produced in stop-motion over 3 weeks in Autumn 2008. Each scene was shot on a home-made dolly by an insane bunch of animators; you can see time-lapse films of each sequence being prepared and shot in our other films.
