meaning is everthing, and everything is meaning

i've got this strange lightness in my chest at the moment, like my heart is skipping a beat or something, but only sometimes. thinking about it isn't making it go away though.

so,,, here's some sound/video stuff i've found recently,
Andre Avelas does sound art and installations with various sound generating devices. in this installation, he places a contact mic inside a mesh bag of living snails. go to the link for images and video and sound files of all his work. and some cool ASCII posters.
is a fashion show with a difference, as it says

Anechoic is a 'collections story' project that uses sound instead of visuals to interpret the essence of key garments the A/W '06-7 season by leading fashion brands. A live recording session in a specialist recording studio -a hemi-anechoic chamber- on 1 June 2006 will be used to create a series of groundbreaking interactives that for the first time in fashion media, detail the precise sound of fashion materials such as feathers, sequins, glass crystals and beads, nylon, taffeta, leather, velvet, jacquard, zips and metallic chains. The live broadcast will also be filmed, providing motion image footage of model Zora Star working in the unconventional, futuristic studio environment, which will be edited to create abstract shorts of each audio 'shot'.

plus, it sounds awesome, anechoic chambers are the shizz, and there's boobies.

remeber the absurdist glove? here's the hand.
