When this flight paths of starlings video by artist and professor Dennis Hlynsky went viral, it sparked a lot of questions for us: How did he make the visualizations? How do the starlings move quickly as a flock? What makes other groups of animals move the way they do?
In Micromigrations from The Atlantic, Hlynsky discusses his own questions as we observe the water striders, ants, starlings, vultures, crows, and little white flying bugs that continue to inspire his curiosity and his work.
This sommerrodelbahn alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria, has been on our Must Do list since we saw this viral video a few years ago. The video above is from the same 2.8km (1.7 mile) summer mountain coaster and follows a brave 6 year old lad down 640 meters (2100 feet) into the valley, over fields and bridges, through the woods and countless switchbacks, all at a pretty quick pace!
A tender fairy tale about discovery and growing up, this is The Silence Beneath the Bark, Le silence sous l’écorce (2010), by Joanna Lurie. Read more about the film here.
Lurie’s previously featured work, Partir (Leaving), explores similar themes.
And on that note, be sure to watch the film short Premier Automne by French animation studio Je Regarde.
