Here’s one example from an interesting set of videos on Vimeo called ‘The Art of Making’. From the group Deep Green Sea, whose aim is to ‘communicate meaningful ideas that can excite, provoke, and educate’, the videos give an in-depth look at the science and skill behind the making of various objects.
The ‘Art of Making’ series aspires to display and highlight people who go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art.
The videos are short and sweet, employing beautiful soundtracks and some impressive editing. Besides carpentry, they also cover the making of a dress and a guitar. Makes me feel like I should go create something.
