Strung Out

Yarn on Vimeo

This is such a simple concept but it’s mesmerizing. I wish I would have thought of something like it for my last project in Time-based Typography I. (Get those headphones/speakers on for this one.)

Vimeo, by the way, is bad ass. It’s like YouTube with class.

    won’t load for me.

  • Do you have Flash 8 installed?

    And Apple is doing nothing about.

    This is very pleasing to watch.
    And the music was well chosen.

    The complexity must be the IDEA.

  • Sebastianbap

    I can’t watch.

    Won’t load for me too.

    I have Flash 8 or 9, i don’t remember.

  • Weird. I’m on an Intel Mac and it works fine for me. Are you guys even seeing the still image in the post?
