Insane Animated Street Art - "Big Bang, Big Boom"

While in San Diego for Comic Con, we stopped by the downtown Museum of Contemporary Art to see a show on street artists, including some fairly well known artists like Banksy and Shepard Fairey (he of the now icon Barack Obama "Hope" poster).  One of the most facinating things in the exhibit wasn't even within the walls of the museum.  Instead a projector showed a video of a street artist from Italy named Blu that showed him animating the creation and conclusion of the world and its inhabitants by repeatedly painting on streets, buildings and vehicles, turning every day objects into an incredible spectical of animation.  Thankfully the 10 minute video of "Big Bang, Big Boom" is online for all to see:

And I'd strongly recommend the exhibit at the Contemporary Museum of Art if you happen to be in downtown San Diego: http://www.mcasd.org/exhibitions/616/viva-la-revolucion
