Music videos aren't usually "artistic" but this one was. This is an excerpt from Kanye West's 35 minutes mini-movie (music video) he premiered over the weekend. I was blown away at the beauty he mixed with hip-hop. He said he wanted every shot to be a "beautiful still" and a piece of art. So at any moment, if the screen was frozen, it would be a beautiful view. The ballet dancers had to freeze and hold poses for long amounts of time and it's just beautifully put together. The entire 35 minutes video is on youtube as well. Check it out. It's amazing.

"Art From Steel - foundered in 2005, seeks to bridge the language barrier which has made it difficult to acquire our statues internationally before. We have bilingual staff who are able to effectively communicate with the artists and to translate even the most abstract of ideas.
Art From Steel is part of The True Potential Group Inc., an American corporation with head office in Nevada. It is run by the company director Mr. Martin Pavion and his wife Tik Pavion from Bangkok, Thailand a few hours from our main workshop."
BELOW IS NOT PART OF MY POST.
I just wanted to share these... I guess. P=
Found them on this site: http://www.toxel.com/inspiration/2008/06/16/creative-food-art/
That site also has a lot of awesome stuff on there. P= I don't know who made them though. I thought they were cute, so I decided to share.

Got to love the way the music produces those awesome abstract lines. Reminded me of the bfk blind embossing when I saw it the first time. Bent studio's new Director Nando Costa created the band’s new music video in a dark and expressive piece of film-making. Heavily rooted in live-action, the impressive six-minute video includes intense moments of stop motion, visual effects, and motion graphics techniques, all brought to life within the studio’s walls.
The variety and execution of the VFX portions of the video - from yarn reeling into complex patterns to a guitar that plays with no musician attached - strongly evoke the confused and surreal patterns of one’s warped memories. Additional creative touches such as animated and intricate photographic collages and giant CG snails sliding across the band’s stage - add variety and depth to the Bent world. What is your interpretation?
If in case you are interested in more. Modest Mouse collaborated with the late Heath Ledger to make a video about the illegal poaching of whales. All the concepts were created by Heath but, unfortunately because of his death in 2008 the very end of the video was completed by members of the Los Angeles art collective/producing company. as shown here.

Backstory: Lifted from the facility’s metal sign shop, this shiv is wrapped in “rubylith” — a red, masking tape classically used in signmaking (and, before the digital revolution, commonly employed by graphic designers in the production of “mechanicals”). Eleven disposable razor blades, available for purchase from Rahway’s commissary back in the 1980s, are carefully inserted down the sides.
