I keep thinking we’re going to run out of interesting places to put action cameras, but then the internet keeps coming up with awesome ideas like fixing one to pottery wheel while an artist crafts a vase.
The video was created by Eric Landon and it depict him molding a lump of clay into a rather awesome-looking piece using deft hand movements. The video itself is pretty disorienting and I had to skip through it a little, but watching the vase take shape is really very fascinating.

Lots of museums have banned selfie sticks, and some exhibitions bar cameras altogether. But leave it to Amsterdam’s famous Rijkmuseum to find a better way to get tourists to put stop photographing and spend more quality time with art: Sketch instead.
With an Instagram campaign, #startdrawing, and live events pegged to an international drawing festival last month, the Rijkmsmuseum went so far as to hang a huge banner over its main entrance depicting a crossed-out camera. In an Instagram post, the museum said it “invites everyone to start drawing in the galleries” in order to “get a closer look at the beauty of the art.”

Far too many people seem to experience famous paintings and sculptures only through their own viewfinders instead of savoring them in the moment. And if you really want a decent reproduction to take home, head to the gift shop and buy a postcard!
