I won’t waste too many words trying to explain this stunning video, which is by Will Hoffman and the folks at Radio Lab. At first glance, it’s a mere collection of ordinary moments – a falling teardrop, an escaped balloon, a dive into a pool – but I think it’s also evidence that the things we see everyday, when carefully framed, can ache with ignored beauty.

    I like it! Reminds me a bit though of the psychology behind the Shining trailer remix:

    Put compelling music behind anything, and it changes the way you think about it…that’s probably why Kant said music was a higher art form than physical representation…
