We are sure you have much better things to do . . . but a little video inspiration never hurt anybody. Today, we have three very different movies for you.
The first is a short — 30 Seconds to be exact. It’s the work of Thilo Hoffman who is exploring this format in a thousand ways. This one is entitled “30 Seconds at MoMA: Staff- Sean Brown” Ever wonder how they turn on the lights at MoMA? Behold the magic! Thanks to Tyler Green’s Modern Notes for the Tweet that led us here.

The second film comes as a recommendation from Sonia King. It is a lovely walk through the world of Ilana Shafir, internationally renowned mosaicist, ceramicist, painter, and inspirational teacher. This video is but one of 8 about Ms. Shafir that you can see on YouTube — we were equally captivated by the one covering her enchanting ceramics. (9 min. 35 sec.)
