Have you seen the apple.com main page recently? My brother recently set up this fun little stop-motion video featuring the opening of the awesome-looking new Apple Store in New York city. He synched up a Nikon d70 to an iCal script, which tells the camera to take a still photo every 5 minutes save it to HD (and not to a memory card). The fine folks at Apple have taken the results and turned it into a nifty web-based Quicktime widget.
Goooooo family! Oh, and, uh… check out his recent 'Video Solid' installation, too.

A haven for long-forgotten (and perhaps best-left forgotten) music videos from the 1980s… everything from punk to new wave to metal to Ricky Gervais. My oh my, how far we’ve come. Gerry Todd would be so proud!

From the site:
Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. There are 82 active machines in various locations throughout the United States. The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector. There are around 400 contributing artists from 10 different countries currently involved in the Art*o*mat project, and they're always searching for fresh work.
