As you might have noticed I tend to come across on focus on inspirational pieces of art as of late - instead of creating much myself - which all things aside is perfectly fine, considering my situation. And overall I truly appreciate the worth of gathering inspiration while being on pause. Most of all I have a passion for sharing not only my own work but that of artists out there that constantly push the boundaries of what art is today. They deserve the recognition.
Today I wanna share with you three different videos showcasing three different types of art and people behind it.
This video demonstrates the beauty of DSLR timelapse, beautifully executed as an audio-visual art experience. In previous posts I mentioned how the visual art combined with a matching underlying audio/music stream can be a creative force for emotions - which ultimately in my point of view is one fundamental goal of displaying and showcasing art.
TWO and THREE
Some might have already heard of the creator’s project. It’s a conduit and showcase project sponsored by Intel and Vice which gives a platform for artists who literally push the envelope with new technology, vision and a sense of pure creativity.
One example is James Powderly of EYEBEAM. After quitting his job as an aerospace engineer he went on to use new technology to establish new applications for art such as laser tagging, which subsequently developed into a world tour. Not only is he the perfect example for one with vivid creativity and a sense for pushing the boundaries of what art is.
Curt Morgan is a pioneer in the digital-art and videomaking. He uses the most advanced cameras on the planet for new customized applications - with more than stunning results.
As cheesy as it may sound these artists inspire in a way that they live a creative life that is only bound by the limits of imagination.
From the icy Arctic to Africa’s dense jungles - and the mountain tops of Mongolia to the deep waters of the Pacific - the BBC series Human Planet has explored mankind’s incredible relationship with nature.
I catch myself procrastinating about all sorts of things and yet again I find a shred of evidence of what I’m supposed to do in a random place. I whine and rant about not knowing where that current path may lead me, however all these little things that make me smile point into one direction. I discovered the BBC’s Human Planet series tonight and I’m not just amazed about the quality and the inspiring nature of the content - but just the true simple beauty of the images.
Especially Timothy Allen, the photographer who accompanied the video crews on the world trip, with his true beliefs about how we are always drawn to the human element in photography, is absolutely inspiring. His audio slideshow has definitely caught my eyes and ears - watch it! (Click on the Source link below to watch the Slideshow.)
I just know that this is what I’m supposed to do, this is where I belong all along. Can I just have my share of luck now please?

Inspiration sometimes strikes at the most unexpected times, in the strangest places. I can’t describe how grateful I am for it though. When the music plays and I see pieces of art, my mind goes nuts. It’s so satisfying and humbling at the same time. I just wanna be out there and create. If know what I mean, come share.
