Timing Is Everything
In this challenge, students will explore the impact gravity has on objects of different sizes and masses by dropping objects from a consistent height and recording their falls.
Making Upside Down & Inside Out
OK Go dives right in to answering the questions everyone is asking. How were they weightless? What did it feel like? And how did they do it for…
How Parabolas Work
OK Go explains what a parabola is and why is it so important for the creation of this video. (Hint: Microgravity)
Art in Microgravity
OK Go explores the rarely explored challenge creating art in microgravity. How? through play, experimentation and trial and error!
Art of Experimentation
Now you try! The band will show you how to use fluid dynamics and color to experiment and create art!
In this challenge, students will develop their understanding of optical illusions and explore how to create illusions like those in “The Writing’s On the Wall” music video by…
OK Go discusses the brain processes behind optical illusions to give us an understanding of how we are able to see things that aren’t really there.
This challenge engages students by making a project that encourages students to create their own small-scale optical illusion: an accordion fold.
Behind-The-Scenes: Anamorphic Illusions
Lead singer Damian Kulash describes anamorphism and how anamorphic illusions were created in the music video for “The Writing’s On the Wall.”
Behind-The-Scenes: The Camera
This video provides a closer look into the creation of the camera and the camera movements that helped make “The Writing’s On the Wall” music video possible.
