Spaghetti Western Theme Music and Flowing Wood Grain

Probably won’t appeal to everyone, but I enjoyed this:

[Waves of Grain]

From the artist’s description:

To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.

    The knots often looked at times like hurricane satellite photos.

    For maximum nerdery, this could be described as translating the spatial dimension of depth into the wood into the temporal dimension.
