This is a mini documentary featuring the Spanish brand peSeta in conjunction with the New Museum of New York chronicling the union of two mechanical lovers: a bicycle and a sewing machine. The result was this sweet film and 15 lovely bicycle caps (which can only be found at the New Museum shop–235 Bowery, NYC). Megafaun‘s The Longest Day was a beautiful feature in the film as well.
It almost compels me to go out and ride a bike. Almost.

I know I already posted my once-weekly dose of beauty, but I just found this and I couldn’t wait a week to share it. This video clip was transferred from Super 8 film onto a digital format.
Analouge film. A Horse. A Beautiful Dress. Gymnopédies I.

I’ve definitely been flyin’ like paper these past few weeks as I’m sure everyone noticed by my drought of posts. (I wasn’t getting high like planes though, don’t judge me) Sometimes I’m just a terrible blogger, what can I say? Anyways, I’m back in business and I definitely don’t have a shortage of lovely things to share.
Brace yourselves, is all I have to say.

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
This is a movie bar-code. Every still frame from the movie like the one above Slumdog Millionaire is compressed into a single frame, creating this bar-code effect.
Le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie Poulain (2001)
This gives a great sense of the challenge that cinematographers have in creating a tableaux for the viewer.
