This past summer I got to hang out with artist Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS at both his Williamsburg studio as well as in a top-secret location where his float for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was being inflated for the first time. If you pick up a copy of the Nov 2012 issue of WSJ you can read his profile as well as check out a couple of my photos as well.
Or, if the very thought of heading out the door to actually physically pick something up fills you with unspeakable dread, you can instead check out the online link instead here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204425904578072631528135710.html?mod=WSJ_Magazine_LEFTSecondStories and you have to click on the video link too to check out the fun time-lapse I shot that shows the float being inflated and then deflated: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204425904578072631528135710.html?mod=WSJ_Magazine_LEFTSecondStories#articleTabs%3Dvideo

The character that is pictured here is called ‘Companion’ and you can catch him live during the Macy’s Day Parade if you are in NYC over Thanksgiving.
Continuing with my occasional posting of time-lapse videos, here is another quick and dirty time lapse; this time from the Shangri-la’s amazing Barr Al Jissah Resort. The resort actually comprises three different properties all set right on the Gulf of Oman. You should go. It’s pretty amazing. You will also note in this time lapse something funny happening at the top of some of the frames as the day wears on – I suspect this is a heat issue with the sensor, but would love to hear other peoples’ theories. Enjoy.
I have started fooling around a bit with time lapse videos. Nothing fancy. Just a series of JPGs all strung together into a little video using Quicktime. They are imperfect. Low-res. Herky jerky. Frames sometimes out of order. BUT, they are kind of fun. Here is the first one.
