Greening the Desert II: Greening the Middle East from Craig Mackintosh on Vimeo.

This half hour video documents the ongoing work of Permaculture Gurus, Geoff and Nadia Lawton, in the Dead Sea Valley. It begins with the famous original ‘Greening the Desert’ five minute video clip, and then continues into Part II, a 2009 update to the 2001 original.

You’ll get to see and learn about the original Greening the Desert site and see some of the spin-off effects of its influence throughout Jordan, and you’ll also be introduced to a new educational demonstration site that was started in 2008.

You can see the video, and more information about it, in its original post here:

And the video is also available on YouTube in four parts:

This is inspiring, practical work - the kind of work that should be encouraged, supported and emulated worldwide. It is the ultimate root-cause type of aid work.

The Egg Painter from Titus-Armand on Vimeo.

The Easter tradition of dying eggs is practiced by people all over the world, but in Ciocanesti, a small village in Romania’s northern region of Bukovina, this tradition has evolved into an art form. Exquisitely hand painted with intricate traditional designs, each of these eggs takes hours to create and is among the things the people here are most proud of. This docu-short offers a glimpse into the art and craft of egg painting. A film by: Titus-Armand Napirlica (armannd.com) Egg Painter: Elena Craciunescu (elena.incondeietoare@gmail.com) Music: Johnny Ripper (johnnyripper.bandcamp.com) With the Support of: Dorin Dumitru Taranu (totuldesprehostel.info)

Scratch Edition from Nick zammuto on Vimeo.

I’ve invented a method of scratching rhythms into the ‘locked groove’ at the center of vinyl records. This kit includes a unique hand scratched vinyl LP of our first record, with a hand screenprinted cover including templates for making your own scratched rhythms on other records in your collection. The music portion of the LP is unnaffected, of course. Includes five templates for common time signatures. All are signed, dated and silkscreened by me here at home in VT. The first 45 copies are on spectacular blue splatter vinyl.

Vivarium from Juan Fontanive on Vimeo.

FLIP BOOK MACHINE -4-COLOR SCREEN PRINT ON BRISTOL PAPER, STAINLESS STEEL, MOTOR AND ELECTRONICS. 20 X 21 X 3.7 IN. 2014
In Fontanive’s machines, minutely toothed gears, clips, roughly finished brass, nuts, bolts, racks, wormwheels and sprockets absorb as much interest – and make up the sculpture – as the floating image before us, which seems to confess with pride the machine-made nature of its movement. -Gilda Williams
