The final video in the adicolor podcast series is just now out, but be warned: Black is sick and twisted. Created by Saiman Chow, this piece is the story of a demented, loveless panda told in three scenes each more astonishing than the previous. The stop motion animation is appropriately shown in black and white and features a beautiful array of patterns, textures and illustrations, some even sadistically reminiscent of Sesame Street.

Pleix is a virtual community of digital artists based in Paris. Some of us are 3D artists, some others are musicians or graphic designers. This website is the perfect place to share our latest creations.
A lot of their work has been in circulation around the internet lately. One I haven’t seen yet is Sometimes, which literally made be say “whoa” out loud just now. I also like Netlag (a visual representation of activity on Earth depicted by aggregated webcams), e-baby (a take on either offspring simulation or remote parenting, I’m not sure), and the Cish Cash video for Basement Jaxx (”You want it? You take it. You take it? You got it.”).
