Callum Cooper: Sculpture for the Moving Image

Callum Cooper: Sculpture for the Moving Image video art

London/Melbourne-based artist and filmmaker Callum Cooper (I think he has the best artist home page in the history of time, some of you will get vertigo) creates bizarre sculptures with embedded cameras meant to capture video from pretty astounding angles. His Full Circle piece creates the illusion of a jumprope that shifts space and time on every jump. Here’s another called Paradoxical Planes:

And if that’s not enough for you there’s another pretty fantastic one that creates a similar effect with bodies of water called Sink or Swim. I’m reminded of the Hula Hoop GoPro that was making the rounds a few weeks ago, but find these works by Cooper even more enchanting and watchable. (via booooooom)
