Here, courtesy of Gizmodo.com, is an intriguing stop-action video of a girl, a dozen or more cans of paint and a camera. Very amusing, and delicious. She’s a lovely girl, apparently named Elvis, and I post this under the rubric of architecture because it raises the question of what is beauty. At some points in the video, which lasts a bit more than four minutes, her obviously pretty face is exalted, at least somewhat, by the effects of the paint and at other times her beauty is diminished. (A side issue is whether one might like the camera to have strayed downward a bit, but I’ll leave that to the technorati.) Be that as it may, her range of expression as she reacts variously to what the paint inflicts on her is priceless. Here is Elvis.
