Torn Paper Sculptures by Anna-Wili Highfield

Wonderful paper animal sculptures by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield.

The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings.

I grew up in a house where the sound of my mom’s sewing machine was constantly hammering away in the background, so it’s easy for me to appreciate how much time it must take Lauren DiCioccio to make these pieces with just a needle and thread. Especially enjoy her sewnnews series. (via who killed bambi)

Another great video short today by Feedmee Design, shot as an intro for the German film competition Kurzundschön (Short & Nice). Another ongoing Colossal theme in this video: my unabashed love for weightlessness in film. (via fubiz)

 

 



Cheers! Beautiful viral advert for SHIRO

Christopher Jobson

Oh this is really special. A long-form, somewhat quirky advertisement for SHIRO, a Japanese brand of shōchū. You’ve probably noticed I kind of have a thing for Rube Goldberg-related related stuff and this is no exception despite its digital interventions. (via booooooom)
