Amelymeloptical Illusion, a seemingly simple yet enthralling rings performance from French juggler Lindzee Poi.

Next, watch French “magic” champ Yann Frisch and Sylvain’s bulles de savon géantes.

Really cool.

This promotional video for NOMOS Glashütte is delicate, detailed, quiet, and fascinating. Master craftspeople assemble the mechanical timepiece’s gears, hands, and other tiny parts with precision as we Look Over the Watchmakers’ Shoulders.

In the archives: more clocks, including the ones at NYC’s Sutton Clock Shop.

Vivarium from Juan Fontanive on Vimeo.

Revisiting Juan Fontanive's mechanical, looping flipbooks: Vivarium. From the artist’s bio: 

Juan Fontanive makes films without using light. Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ‘animations’. His interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement… Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture - there is no ‘screen’ as such.

We’ve enjoyed Fontanive’s kinetic sculptures before… remember these?

Also in the archives: videos with more birds, more butterflies, more kinetic sculptures, and more flip books, one of our favorite DIY activities. Make your own!

Imagine how you might pass a straight metal rod through a curved hole. How does that work if neither bends? Is it impossible? This demonstration at the Science Museum in Valencia, Spain shows that it’s absolutely possible with some creative thinking: motion changing where objects intersect over time. A simple but interesting demo… we want to build our own.

In the archives: more spinning and more geometry, including a few Eames films from Mathematica: A World of Numbers… and Beyond.
