Found on This is Colossal.
Valley of Dolls from Fritz Schumann on Vimeo. ~ A resident of a small Japanese village replaces residents who have moved or died with handmade dolls. How weird it would be to just stumble upon this without any context, arts and crafts zombies. Related articles Woman makes dolls to replace people in her village
snowtime from Иванов Вячеслав on Vimeo. ~ Beautiful (and tiny) time-lapse. Found at Colossal.
Table Manners from Rebecca Manley on Vimeo. ~ Cardboard has never looked so good.
SHAKE from Variable on Vimeo. ~ For those who enjoy dogs and excessive amounts of slobber spraying wildly in slow motion.
Midnight Moment: “Eye Test” – 2×4 from AIGA/NY on Vimeo. ~ I’m seeing spots, but in a good way. This would look amazing in Times Square.
Django Django – WOR from Jim Demuth on Vimeo. ~ As much as I would love to witness this in person, I have to admit that I would spend the entire time with my hands over my eyes. I mean, come on, it’s actually called the “Well of Death!”
Elemental Iceland from Stian Rekdal on Vimeo. ~ 40,000 timelapsed images of Iceland. If money were no object this would be the ultimate vacation (with a quick stop over in Tokyo, while I’m travel fantasizing). Found at Laughing Squid.
Full Turn ECAL/Benjamin Muzzin from ECAL on Vimeo. ~ I’ve been meaning to link to this for a few days now. Spinning two flat panel televisions back to back at high speed creates fantastic images.

Phoenix – Entertainment | A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo. ~ A French hipster drone encounters a band. At the Palace of Versailles. Entertainment ensues.
Prefunerale Luigi Virgillito from Ground’s Oranges on Vimeo. ~ A pre-funeral celebration, parodying 18th birthday vanity videos popular in Southern Italy. And now that I’ve seen a few of those pre-diciottesimo videos this is so much better in every possible way. It’s weird, has great imagery, and shows that Americans haven’t cornered the market on narcissism in a strangely reassuring way. Oh you whacky Italians.
RIO from SCIENTIFANTASTIC on Vimeo. ~ Fantastic timelapse of Rio de Janeiro.
Modern Ruin: Black Hole from Jeff Frost on Vimeo. ~ Really fantastic time-lapse using still images from riots and optical illusion paintings. Chaotic and violent beauty.

~ Detroit Bus Company. Fitting video given yesterday’s news of the city filing for bankruptcy.
Dubai Timelapse from dimid on Vimeo. ~ Some day, when the world is a different place, perhaps I can finally get to the Middle East and all the places I’ve wanted to see for many decades. Oh, and I guess I’ll need the money too, but this one is tied in first place with the Egyptian pyramids.
Reach from Luke Randall on Vimeo. ~ That poor robot needs a better power supply.
Balmorhea – Pyrakantha [official] from Colin Kennedy on Vimeo. ~ I think this is the first time Los Angeles has ever looked appealing to me. Beautiful.
