I’m hooked on pictures, as some of you may know. And since I haven’t shared for a while, I thought I’d throw in a few examples of the visual delights I’ve been discovering. Some of these go into my art blog for student inspiration and others are just chucked into Diigo.
I fell in love with this animation a little while ago.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
So much to love in this animation – the soft, translucent colours, the textures, the attention to detail and sense of wonder.
And how amazing is this paper art by Alexander Korzer-Robinson whose art focuses on the notion of the ‘inner landscape’.
The cut book art has been made by working through the books, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. The images seen in the finished work, are left standing in the place where they would appear in the complete book.
There’s something about Sea Hyun Lee’s red landscapes that I can’t define. That’s why you should read this analysis here.
Corinne Vionnet is the creator of a series of photographic works entitled “Photo Opportunities”, from hundreds of snapshots of tourist locations found on the Internet. By collecting and then bringing together successive layers of around a hundred similar “photo souvenirs”, these images conjure up questions about representation and memory of places.
I love the ethereal impression created by these dreamy versions of cliched tourist landscapes.
Matatoro is directed by Mauro Carraro, Raphaël Calamote, and Jérémy Pasquet. Motionographer has a fascinating post with an interview with the film makers on the process of the making of the film.
Watch the film on Vimeo. You will not regret it; it’s brilliant.
You can see the rest of the pictures in mapolito’s Flickr photostream.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. If you have any art/illustration/animation/film blogs you would recommend, please share.
