3d Animated Graffiti by Graffiti Technica

November 28, 2010

OK, so maybe a little over the top, but I’m loving these animated graffiti sketches from the Australian Graffiti Technica. There’s just the perfect mix of shaky camera work, lighting, and top-notch sound design to make these little 3d experiments pretty exceptional, and hey, if all graffiti trended toward enormous hover robots we’d probably spend a lot less taxpayer money on spray paint removal.

Interactive butterfly installation by Dominic Harris

Christopher Jobson

Flutter is a really impressive interactive artwork by Dominic Harris of Cinimod Studio. The installation consists of a linear array of 88 vertical double-sided video fins projecting from a mirrored surface. Butterflies are projected on the screens and then react to the motion of your hand or body as you pass by.

Fun viral advert for Batelco, and an obligatory making of clip. Made by Spy Films, which also produced Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 precursor, Alive in Joburg. And don’t miss the District 9 sequel viral advert just released last week. (via pratt)

Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)
