We’re going with a video theme here, but they’re each worth a watch. This video called 8min20sec shows traffic in Paris recorded by design firm Fl@33 and will soon appear at a London Transport Museum exhibition. There’s definitely something beautiful about the chaos yet continuous flow of traffic looping through each frame. The music begins about 1.5 minutes into the video. According to the artists, “The original DV footage was recorded in Paris at the Place Charles de Gaulle from the top of the Arc de Triomphe that offers a bird’s-eye view to the exceptionally busy roundabout below in which the Arc stands.” [Via Creative Review.]
