The Inception Chair

May 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Inception Chair by RISD student Vivian Chiu is a series of ten interlocking chairs made of ash, meant to mimic the dream-within-a-dream concept from the 2010 film Inception.

Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease.

What a fantastic project. I’ll take ten. Or one. Whatever. See more photos here. (via notcot)

Preview for Noise

March 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is a teaser trailer for an upcoming stop motion short film called Noise by Polish filmmaking duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski. Via their blog:

Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception.
It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.

See more screens from the film here. (via lookva)

A few weeks ago we established what my wife thinks of Holly Throsby and then today I discovered this new video for Throsby’s latest single What I Thought of You which may have just made Megan’s mind explode completely. Directed by Yanni Kronenberg, the video is a worldwide collaboration filmed on Super 8 by 20 people between 1974 and 2011 in Australia, America, Canada, The United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Greece, Iceland, Ukraine, Sweden and Brazil.

A new music video/short film by Belgian director Charles De Meyer for Amon Tobin‘s 2007 track Esther’s off Foley Room. I agree with a comment on YouTube, “I’d rather watch this than transformers.” Go for the HD full-screen.
