Loop Mass Documentation

We’re so excited to share this video documentation from Stephen Fishman of AMODA and Ryan Padgett of from the Loop Mass show that we participatd in last fall. Here’s what they had to say about this amazing project: Loop Mass was a joint effort by the Austin Museum of Digital Art and Captive that was […]

Adventure Peaks

We’re so, so in love with these Adventure Time x Twin Peaks mashups that have been making the internet rounds recently. Two of our favorites! First image by Kate Willaert, and the second two are by Mentalguy.    

Early Movements

Dangerous Minds posted some of these earlier which sent us down the rabbit hole of the Phenakistoscope, Thaumatrope, and other forms of early movement and animation (one of our favorites is Eadweard Muybridge, whose work we’ve used in our video projections before).

I just want to be, Wherever you are

Last night we watched the Arthur Russell documentary, Wild Combination, which was one of the sweetest and saddest and most beautiful documentaries I’ve ever seen.

You can watch a trailer / preview for the documentary below: Also loving the above gorgeous poster, designed by DW Design and released by Mondo. Dang. We want this one […]
