I love this video. Nominated for the Best Short Form Music Video Grammy award, the truly inventive "Her Morning Elegance" is hands down my favorite video from last year. Wondering if the Kindle commercial was shot by the same artist? Does anyone know?

And I love that my boyfriend found out about the event we attended last night at Bergamot Station. Her Morning Elegance Gallery did an amazing job of displaying the incredible stop motion photographs. "Her Morning Elegance music video was made of exactly 2096 still photographs, shot and sequenced to create the sense of movement using stop motion technique.
After going from stills to motion, the artists decided to break the motion back to its still form and exhibit the 2096 individual photographs in gallery exhibitions worldwide.Each still photograph will be printed once as a single edition print and sold through this website. Once a photograph is sold, the corresponding second in the video will no longer be available. And with the very last frame sold, the video will have been broken apart, back to its original 2096 pieces, spread worldwide and hung in 2096 houses, bedrooms, living rooms and galleries."
Here are some photos from the evening...





The other night, we had the pleasure of listening to the author of The Happiness Project at Vroman's in Pasadena. Gretchen spoke of her resolutions, the things she tried to do for happiness which failed (Laughing Yoga being one of them), and amazing insights into her year of research. She was inspiring and I am truly looking forward to reading the book. Oh and I totally perked up when she mentioned scrapbooking. Turns out she does it & loves it!
