Television is a Drug and Skateboarding Still Rules

I came across these two pieces, which I thought were great examples of people reconfiguring or re-thinking a commonly accepted form of content.

The first is Beth Fulton’s kinetic text interpretation of Todd Alcott’s poem. The piece, and I assume the poem, are entitled Television is a Drug:

The second, Tilles Singer’s piece, Skateboardanimation, is a nifty hybrid of fast-shutter photography from print, and motion graphics or stop-frame animation in digital video. If we also consider that the video is being distributed digitally, pieces like this can really represent the evolution of our media across the years, in a single piece:

Got something to share (of your own or otherwise)? Let me know in the comments.
