GRAFF - Que se passe-t-il lorsque des graffeurs disposent d’un espace entier dans lequel exercer leur art en toute liberté ? Vous pouvez découvrir le résultat dans la vidéo ci-dessus. Le film, d’une durée de cinq minutes, suit le processus créatif des graffeurs SOFLES, Fintan Magee, Treas et Quench sur un fond de dubstep.
Created by Yuki Ariga for Japanese paper manufacturer Nepia this lovely animated short features a cavalcade of delicately folded tissue paper animals. If you’re interested, here’s the making of video. (via NOTCOT)
Stunning Shots of the Most Gorgeous Sculpture at Burning Man
One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
*-* Encore une vidéo très réussie de Daniel Cloud Campos. Plus je les suit plus j’apprécie et m’émerveille du résultat du travail en couple de Daniel Cloud Campos & Tamara Levinson-Campos. Et de voir le résultat de leurs inspirations et recherches dans un produit fini, et réussit.
Brooklyn-based artist Juan Fontanive creates spectacular motorized flip-books. He manually illustrates and paints each “frame” of his sculptural animations on paper and proceeds to install them in his kinetic boxes that sequentially flip through to simulate motion, just like a film projector except without light.
By salvaging mechanical parts from clocks and bicycles, the artist is able to construct individual containers for his mechanized animations. Fontanive’s objective with his motorized machines is to create a visual sense of motion that is more physical than digital. One of his works states: “Responding to the lack of movement found in our current electronics age, he is interested in actual movement in relation to virtual. His machines long to free images; they combine to form a medium in themselves exploring the vividness of living things.”
Some of Fontanive’s most visually striking subjects in his kinetic machines are various types of birds. He imitates their flying gestures through a sequence of hand-drawn illustrations. The sound of the repetitively shuffling papers even seem to mimic the flapping of a bird’s wings. Check out the video, below, to see one of the artist’s machines in motion.
