Take 400 pieces of art from 6 years of work, mash them all together and you get some amazingly trippy stuff. Siggi Eggertsson is a phenomenal illustrator who’s been all over the place designing anything from graphics in magazines to t-shirts to that Gnarls Barkley cover you loved. So seeing all of his work constantly expanding at your face non-stop for over two minutes it’s pretty crazy to think that he’s designed every single one of those funny, little pieces. This video is both mesmerizing and slightly nauseating, but as a whole is totally amazing.
Check out this beautiful little fashion video by New York photographer Anna Wolf for Untitled Magazine. I keep having conversations with people about photography versus video, and while I think neither of them is going to be going anywhere fast, I think videos like these show what’s going to be happening in fashion in the near future. I think it’s partially the subtlety of her camera work and the well chosen angles that really make this beautiful to me.
She should also get props for not using Sigur Ros as the music for the video. Yes, Sigur Ros give an amazing vibe and feeling to you slow-motion shots, but everyone on earth has already done it, and no, you shouldn’t use Riceboy Sleeps or any other side-project by them either.
The fires here North of Los Angeles are still raging, it’s starting to look a lot like Mount Doom, in fact. The other day Matt mentioned that it would be cool to see a time-lapse video of the smoke from the fires. As crazy scary and horrible as the fires are, watching the smoke can be pretty beautiful and amazing. The video is pretty surreal, I never really knew how smoke reacted on such a large scale.
I don’t know all of the details about the video above, but I do know:
A) That it’s frigging amazing.
B) They need to do this on a castle here in L.A.
Apparati Effimeri is a collection of artists from Bologna who’ve created this amazing architectural video installation called Tetragram for Enlargement. Basically they’ve precisely mapped out the surface of a castle and projected a video over the top of it. The video looks just like the surface of the castle, except when they start to tweak and distort the features of it. For example, they appear to change the light source hitting the castle, so the shadows lengthen and grow. It’s an extremely trippy thing to see.
Your best bet is to watch the video and soak it in for yourself. Also, be sure to watch it to the very end, that’s when my favorite effect happens.
I came across Jen Stark’s Vimeo profile the other day, and was surprised to see that it didn’t have a ton of people visiting it yet. For those who haven’t heard of Jen, she’s the awesome lady who makes the amazing cut paper sculptures. For a quick lesson, click here.
Anyhow, she’s made some really fun videos using her paper cutting skills, including the video at the top, which is the “view of the inside of a sculpture (she) created called “Tunnel Vision” that hangs on the wall and has a peephole you can look into.” They’re all pretty great and short, so enjoy them all.
