The Turn

The Turn is a fascinating look at the work of artist/singer Fredo Viola. The navigation alone is worth marveling over, but the concept might even eclipse that. He records multiple video tracks of an audio piece (song) and puts them together to "watch" the song come together. This is standard fare on youtube these days, but this presentation is mesmerizing and beautiful. Extraordinarily well done.
