French artist Armelle Caron abstracts urban city plans into organized components.

Caron deconstructs cities, identifies fragments, classifies blocks by size and shape. All meaning, memory, void and heritage is kept away by decontextualization. The urban assemblage of the “villes rangées” relies on analysis, order, rhythm, dimension, typology, strata.

The installed prints were accompanied by similar wooden cutouts that could then be organized similarly by visitors. (via things magazine / pytr75)

Vibrant Rorschach prints from Portland designer Matt W. Moore. I first saw these a couple days ago and the images have permanently seared themselves into my brain.

We Have Band: You Came Out

Stumbled onto this 2009 stop motion video for You Came Out by We Have Band, it’s lovely if not slightly bizarre.

The face paint animation film is made up of 4,816 separate stills. Each and every frame was hand-painted, shot, wiped off and redrawn, slightly differently for the next frame in order to create a seamless sequence. This time-consuming process involved the band members lying still for two consecutive days in a studio.

In order to animate the singing bit, lip movement was created by animating a painted mouth on the singer Dede. This involved breaking the lyrics into phonetics and giving each sound a specific mouth shape. To make this as realistic as possible all the mouth shapes were painted on Dedes face individually and then shot. All 4,816 frames of the music video can be found on Flickr

If you’re lucky enough to live in Italy they’ll be in Milan tomorrow night and Bologna on Friday. (via polkadot)

Love these installations by Marc Anthony-Polizzi. Gah and he’s a couple years younger than me. I quit. Many more images of this and other contemporary installations in the new book Staging Space. (via we make money not art)

Thread installations by Gabriel Dawe.

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture.

If you like this you’ll love the work of Sébastien Preschoux. (via world’s best)
