THE OPENING CEREMONIES OF THE 2008 SUMMER OLYMPICS - An Artistic Feast for the Eyes

What an amazing show! As an artist I was glued to the screen by the truly creative and artistic approach to these ceremonies.

I was totally floored by the calligraphy and Chinese brush painting portion - human bodies were the brush and a giant monitor was the paper - it was amazing!

And the moving blocks were fantastic - if you saw them you know what the surprise is - I won't let the cat out of the bag here.

This video shows just a bit of the genius of director John Imo (forgive me for any misspelling here - couldn't find any reference to him on google!):
