In this week’s Friday Finds we’ve got an amazing video love letter to Chicago, some truly fantastic perspective sculptures, and a site that everyone in the startup community should keep bookmarked.
1. Windy City Nights Trailer
Photographer Max Wilson set out in April 2012 to capture the beauty of Chicago at night and has been adding to his collection of images slowly but surely. He’s posted a trailer for his completed project and it is definitely worth all three minutes. Put it on HD, full-screen, sit back and enjoy.
Self-described artist scientist Jonty Hurwitz creates brilliant perspective sculptures like this one, when viewed from one angle look like an abstract form, but when viewed from another look like a fully formed figure.
3. It’s This for That
Anyone whose been to a networking event for startups knows the inevitable question: “So, what does your startup do?” It’s This for That helps you with that question by providing extremely helpful and relevant answers. You can also use it for coming up with your next great idea. These are some of our favorites:
“So basically it’s like facebook marketplace for Mitt Romney’s hair”
“So, basically, it’s like a Flickr for Pandas”
…and our #1 favorite
“It’s like adultfriendfinder for traffic accidents”
