.jed's other poem.

I've stumbled upon yet another music video that caught my eye.

I just adore how people weave simplicity into something understatedly handsome. Watching the cursor dancing around in synergy with the song makes me smile, a little.

Jed’s Other Poem (Beautiful Ground) from Stewdio on Vimeo. An unsolicited, then approved, music video for the band Grandaddy and their song of the same name off of the album The Sophtware Slump.

Directed by Stewart Smith - An artist-programmer from New York City, currently operating in London. He operates Stewdio, a consultancy that approaches art and software through the lens of graphic design. Stewart has taught introductory Web design at Yale, Data Visualization (using Processing) at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, and advises organizations exploring new interactive technologies and techniques.

Pick A Piper is a collective from Weber along with Angus Fraser, Dan Roberts, and Clint Scrivener. Directed by Weber himself, here's a candy-speckled video directed by Weber himself - which was partially shot in magical Iceland, just the way I remember that subdued utopia - for their single “Rooms.”
