Wilderness Downtown

Regardless of your opinions of Arcade Fire's new album, their interactive video for the Wilderness Downtown is pretty amazing feat of coding. There are windows popping up everywhere incorporating Google Earth maps and street views. Put your town in and see it go back to nature.

just a teaser... I'll save the truly awesome effects for you to discover.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Jon Contino's work among them.

Here are some of my favorites:

This flower/herbal face would make a great set with Uppercase's Floral Numerals:

I mentioned Matt Williams (aka Uberkraaft) in my previous post on Jonny Wan. I was definitely pleasantly surprised to find so many amazing pieces that reminded me of a lot ofMike Perry's pattern work but more monsters...
