A Machine that Constantly Almost Falls Over
« on: August 08, 2009, 12:45:34 AM »
I find this extremely captivating. A machine that constantly almost falls over: http://vimeo.com/1609126
I found this website on Brian Selznick's website, which contains a trove of interesting web oddities. http://www.theinventionofhugocabret.com/about_brian_weirdsites.htm

I saw this a while ago. Still love it. So absurd but elegant at the same time.

I find it disturbing.  Like some 19th-century torture room.

This brings out an OCD in me I wasn't fully aware of. I have the urge to run into that video and kick them all down onto the ground. JUST GO OVER!

Eventually all those hammer impacts are going to weaken that flimsy-looking wood, and then we'll see who's not falling over, chump.

It's almost maddening to watch.
You look like a really healthy Arthy Lang.
