The following “serigraphs,” which, it turns out, are merely “print[s] made by the silk-screen process,” were produced by the award-winning design and illustration studio of Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers as part of “From Sea to Shining Sea,” their most recent series of posters which beautifully depict eight of America’s most remarkable cities.
Here are (of course) my two favorites:
NEW YORK CITY
You can check out the rest of the collection (or order one for just $30) at The Heads of State.
This video, entitled “The Sandpit,” is a series of time-lapsed photos depicting “a day in the life of New York City, as seen in miniature” by utilizing the art of tilt-shift photography, a post-processing technique of editing a photograph that is usually achieved by selectively focusing on certain portions of a photo, while blurring out the other parts, and which, when done correctly, somehow makes a scene look, well, miniaturized. The following is an example of this technique at its finest and its most beautiful (you can also see the “making of” here). By shooting and editing some 35,000 shots, the photographer truly makes the big city look like a bunch of Lego’s…in a good way (just trust me and watch it):
(also, this is WELL worth leaving my fine, fine site, even if it’s just for a few minutes, and watching this in all its glory, both in HD and in full-screen, by clicking here)

I sincerely hate my friends for missing a show in NYC as insane as this one…but I’ll allow them to peep the videos nonetheless, as, well, website traffic is website traffic. Please note that I can’t peep shit (!) because the internet in Africa is too slow to watch video, the torture of me being in a different continent than that of the above show apparently not painful enough for me as it stood. So enjoy watching your futuristic, online internet videosnow, you rich, high-speed internetting bastards. (feat.
