The 360 Project

“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle.

There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin. The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

Pretty cool.

The 500m friends of Facebook

The map below was knocked together by an intern at Facebook, it visualises where people live relative to their Facebook friends, it’s surprising how detailed the map is, you can clearly see the shape of continents and even some internal borders. However, large pieces are missing such as China and Russia where Facebook hasn’t quite taken off, they clearly don’t know what they’re missing out on!
