I don’t know if I’ve actually posted this video before or if it’s just one in that huge pile of things I’ve bookmarked but never got around to. Either way, I’m really grateful to the folks at The Mind Unleashed for bringing it back to my attention…
Having spent far more time than I liked on the road feeling stuck and all alone, I might’ve found this video too much of a depressing a reminder of all the time I’ve wasted chasing other people’s dreams. But all thoughts like that vanished very quickly once I started watching! :)

According to Paul Caridad’s Visual News article, it took 750 feet of steel wire, 200 grinder bits, and 16 months of work for Sandman Creations sculptor Sean Sobczak to create his incredible six and a half foot tall “Shake Dreams From Your Hair” sculpture.

An eye-popping assortment of animated and still images, plus a video, from the folks at Optically Aroused…
A wonderful two-part look at the gorgeous mountains and skies of Washington State in time-lapse video! :D
