This short video on climate change, produced by Toronto Star photographer Lucas Oleniuk, is very elegant. It doesn’t have a great deal of substantive content, but it includes a lot of striking visual images. Rather than being shot continuously, it consists of 20,000 black and white still images.

The video, and some of the claims made in it, are being discussed on Metafilter.

Flintstones-style pedal car gets its day in court

The pedal powered Flintstones car covered earlier on boingboing makes its way to court in Toronto today. Their lawyer, from the legal department of the Canadian Automobile Association thinks they will win. The highway traffic act does not categorize vehicles powered by muscle, friction drive, or wind as being “motor vehicles” for the purposes of the law.

People can see the trial at old city hall courthouse, in courtroom “R” at 3:00PM today.

That’s definitely an arty production. I like some of the shots that juxtapose machinery with patches of nature.
