HEAD OVER HEELS from Timothy Reckart on Vimeo.
Have you ever felt like you and your partner are being pulled towards different directions?
Head Over Heels, a stop motion animated short film by Timothy Reckart, takes this situation literally and tells the story of a married couple where one lives on the floor, while the other is stuck to the ceiling. They live in the same house, but share nothing except the space they occupy. That is, until a pair of ballet shoes is discovered and ignites the desire to reconnect.
Head Over Heels is a touching look at how marriage is often a struggle, but love can overcome in the most creative of ways.
(In my case, creativity came in the form of playing World of Warcraft)

How amazing are these paper hats by artist Stuart McLachlan? He started his career as an illustrator before shifting his focus on cut paper as art. Although all of his works are breathtaking, I find that the ones he made for children are especially endearing.
I know that the concept is probably a little too elaborate (or is it?), but can you imagine having a children’s party with these as party hats?
P.S. Here I go again. I think I’m falling into the parenting trap of wanting to do too much. My imagination is already going wild, planning the baby’s christening with art installations as the theme. Methinks I should slow down and focus on having the baby first.
Meet the Obliteration Room.
Artist Yayoi Kusama gave a thousand stickers to a thousand kids. I may just use this as a parenting reference.
