A bit of a departure from the usual today.  I’ve recently come across this very cool project called “The Johnny Cash Project” which fuses music with user-generated art.  The concept is fairly simple, but also unique and super well-done.  Basically, users are asked to illustrate a single frame of a video for Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave”.  The end result takes user-illustrated frames (that are drawn somewhat in line with the original) and combines them with their brethren to create a new, dynamic video for the song that is ever changing.  The end result is like ecletic, schizophrenic stop-motion art, which contrasts really interestingly with the moody and melodic music.  Very awesome.
