The video title is “why america is fucked”. I don’t geographically agree because the issue is not only american, alas. In France (for example), I can’t stand those ads using Comic Sans. No, really.

Even if I’m a developer, I like art. Particularly Pop Art, Surrealism, and impossible structure from M. C. Escher.

These paintings are great. But for us, living behind a computer screen, we’d like to see animation and arts in many different ways.

This morning I discovered 3 videos that I’d like to share with you.

First, a 3D exploration of Guernica, Picasso’s painting:

Then, a short film animating a character from Guernica in other artists’ paintings:

Many of us spend hours sitting at our computer each day, which often elevates fatigue and poor posture. The uniquely-shapped Gaiam BalanceBall Chair ($80) works as a shock absorber by taking pressure off the spine and relieving muscle tension and promoting good posture. By removing the ball you can perform simple exercises to help tone and strengthen back muscles without ever going near the gym.
