The Mesmerising Colours Of Paint Swirling Around Together

Video: Thomas Blanchard made this lovely video, The Colours of Feelings, using paint, oil, milk, honey and cinnamon as a sort of analogy for feelings like love and joy and sadness and so forth. The work is mesmerising and verges on feeling like you’re in a dream. I can watch this type of thing (it’s not quite watching paint dry but watching paint mix), for a very long time.


This Video Of The Coast Makes The Edge Of The World Look Even More Beautiful

Video: There is peace when your feet sink into the sand and your ears hear the waves and your nose smells the salt. It’s a beautiful feeling, standing on a beach and looking out into the ocean and imagining the edge of the world. But it might be even more beautiful to see the water creeping onto the end of land from above. Like in this video.


Video: A Totally Stunning Aerial Tour Of Forests And Mountains

I’m a city person. I like buildings and bridges and streets and corners. I like angles and materials and signs and lights. But even I can let my jaw hang throughout this entire video about forests and mountains. The aerial video filmed by Earth Porn Films starts with the greenery of Alberta, Canada and transforms into the winter wonderland that is Alaska. It is truly stunning.


Carving Candles To Expose Hidden Designs Is Absolutely Beautiful

Carving decorative candles is such an exquisite art because not only does the end result look great but the whole process requires a lot of planning to get the right mix of colours and demands a lot from the artist, because there’s a time limit as the candle hardens throughout the carving process. Here’s a few videos showing how it’s done.


Proof That Dusk And Dawn In Australia Are The Best Times Of The Day

People like dawn because it’s the start of the new day and the illusion of opportunity exists as light breaks the night. I like dawn because when I see the sun rise it meant I had a great night. But dusk is more my speed, the world comes alive in a completely different way. In any case, dusk and dawn are the best times of the day.


Video: Iceland Might Be The Most Magnificent Place In The Universe

It’s unfair, really. One place shouldn’t be able to stun your eyeballs as much as Iceland does. Its landscape is just unreal, like it’s a physical manifestation of a glitch in the Universe to allow for so many jaw dropping places in one country. Just watch this drone footage of Iceland and try to disagree.


Video: A Portrait Of The World's Youngest Master Penman

It’s not like I totally judge people’s handwriting (ok, I judge them a little) but it’s just refreshing to see good penmanship in 2015 because it’s so rare. We all just type on computers or phones and the most we write is two or three looping scribbles on a receipt. Here’s a look at someone who doesn’t just type and scribble though, in fact, he’s a Master Penman.


Beautiful Video Of Beautiful Birds Flying In Slow Motion

Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world. What else even comes close? Being able to hold your breath really long? Change colours? Grow back a chopped claw? Flying tops them all. Here’s a collection of birds flying in slow motion just to make you even more jealous.


Video: Watching A Person Write Calligraphy Is Basically Therapy

This whole short, Ink by Ryan Couldrey, focuses on Tanja Tiziana and the journey of rediscovering the long lost (ok, not quite long lost but soon/almost/eventually) art of calligraphy and just handwriting in general. Though dripping in a little too much ink at times, it’s always so nice to see someone write. The effect — hearing the scraping, seeing the ink flow — can almost be therapeutic.


Northern Lights Over Newfoundland Make Me Happy To Be An Earthling

These stunning images of the northern lights were captured by astrophotographer Adam Woodworth in L’anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland — the only confirmed Viking settlement in North America — on the night of 22 June and the early morning hours of 23 June.
