“Before social media there was society and there was media. Now there’s this.”


When you take the music out of this Michel Gondry-directed music video for The White Stripes, it looks a bit like a Sesame Street video from the 1970s. This is a “musicless” version of The Hardest Button to Button, one in a sound experiment series edited and remixed by Mario Wienerroither.

Related stop-motion: Shugo Tokumaru’s Katachi, Royal Canoe’s Bathtubs, Ben Garvin’s Magic Beard, and More (The Hunter Pixilation Project), a video inspired by Joey Ramone.

[Image: Stern and fierce person with long feather earrings looks beyond the camera holding two signs, one being a quote by revolutionary Assata Shakur “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them” and the other one that reads “CCU 2010 critical thinking proficiency 5% Critical Thinking can be CRITICAL Does your course want you to think?”]

“Thoreau and Weil were writers coming out of the Romantic tradition. For me, the Romantic movement was an attempt to create a wisdom literature for the West. A good part of that wisdom had to do with returning us to the immediacy of the world. As a poetic technique this has come to be known as defamiliarization. What it attempts to do is to destroy the world of custom, habit, stereotype, and ideology so that we can see things for what they are, so that we can see and feel the stone’s stoniness. When Walt Whitman says that his poetry is about leaves of grass, he is essentially saying, We have not been attentive. We need to look again at this leaf of grass. He wrote, ‘Bring all the art and science of the world, and baffle and humble it with one spear of grass.’”
