FIGURE / *Asterisk – Graphic Dance Movement

The 1st video of the Experimental Multimedia Unit “*Asterisk” – a short dance video that simply expressed relation between music, dance and visual image.
*Asterisk’s members are MEISAI (Dance), MANUKE (Direction) and Kariu Kenji (Sound).

WoW. Amazing. This is the best representation I have seen of the patterns, lines and shapes formed by movement in Juggling, Dance and Manipulation. We’re excited to see more work from this collaboration.
Thanks to Remi for the link.

The Busking Project

The Busking Project have travelled the world in search of the world’s street art, finding the beauty in each of the people they meet, recording it, editing it, then sharing it for the world to see. With 114 high definition videos, they certainly have a beautiful collection of interesting and inspiring people, like the Hong Kong Rose Sculptor.

Want: Toroflux!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfDi89Hj0QAFlowtoys put together this cute video showing a Toroflux in action, including a demo by Isaac Blackwood combining a Toroflux with 1 ball contact juggling – Supergood.

Designed by Jochen Valett the Toroflux is “a mesmerizing kinetic sculpture and an interactive “flow toy” that’s like a 4th dimensional slinky.” Sweet, I must have watched this video about 100 times in the last 2 weeks, we’re starting the Christmas list early at MoM Headquarters.
