Universal Everything / Radiohead – Polyfauna An experimental collaboration between Radiohead, Nigel Godrich, Stanley Donwood and Universal Everything The studio was commissioned to develop Polyfauna as a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and the sketchbooks of Stanley Donwood. Set to a lunar calendar, the mysterious, immersive app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. A pioneering new collision between digital art and the world of apps, the collaboration sees the creation of abstracted, expanded and exploded versions of audio and visual work by the band. Inviting the user into an immersive, expansive world of primitive life, weather, sunsets, mountains and forests, Polyfauna comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious.

Saige's hot air balloon project I've been beside myself all month wanting to post this blog but I have tried to be patient. I'm so excited to finally share this with everyone. Recently our PTA president contacted me about a grant she had found on the American Girl Website. The subject had to be hot air balloons.
