What is music, really? How does music create an invisible bridge between time, memories, cultures and your own existence? And what happens when you can’t remember anything but music?
I explore the impact of music on humanity and how music makes you…you.
What are dragons? Why are we so afraid of snakes? How have they influenced our evolution?
I’m really happy with how the silly time machine came out. It’s a child’s tent covered in aluminum foil, with a dryer vent hose connected to an air purifier. The controller is an educational toy I found at the Salvation Army.
This video covers mental time travel, a brief history of clocks, the development of science fiction and the forgotten time machine inventor.
Why a video about scurvy? Because it’s actually an incredibly interesting story that teaches us a lot about our world and the understanding of knowledge.
Also, I do not recommend shooting an entire video in a kiddie pool!
Why do we poop and pee in clean water? That was the question I asked myself when starting research for this video. The ensuing weeks led me from poet Sir John Harington to painter Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Thank you to The Hundertwasser Foundation for their help – specifically Doris and Andrea.
Please enjoy the video!
I’d like to thank everyone at The Met for being incredibly gracious, accommodating and helpful in making this video possible. I’d also like to thank the people at Guinness World Records for opening up their incredible vault of collectors to me for use in the A-Z collection montage.
Thanks for watching!
The latest installment in my Human series takes a look at the history of pets, our relationship with animals and the dog/human partnership. Along the way, we learn how the cuteness of babies has altered dog breeds as well as cartoon characters.
Special thanks to contributions by illustrator Ian Gibson, graphics wizard Eric Langlay, audio master Jay Pellizzi and wordsmith Matthew Tabor.
I’d become increasingly obsessed with how recently we’ve become accustomed to recording everything about ourselves and broadcasting it online. This video takes a closer look at the history of humans recording themselves.
Special thanks to Chris from ZanzibarLand for 3D printing the Vsauce cylinder seal. We’re always looking for creative new ways to display our outro Vsauce graphic and I’m so happy with this one.
Enjoy the video!
