Where's your head at

June 13, 2011

At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second.

Floating Chicago

May 24, 2011

Using time-lapse footage of the Chicago skyline shot over several years Craig Shimala (previously) has created another one of his superb mirrored videos. It’s fascinating how this simple editing trick turns the cold city skyline into a hovering, monolithic spacecraft.

Complexity Graphics by Tatiana Plakhova

I’ve been waiting months for the opportunity to bring Tatiana Plakhova’s work onto Colossal but wanted to make sure it was something brand new that hadn’t been widely circulated online. Just today she published this incredible new series of digital artwork called NOOSPHERE that blends her signature algorithmic and gemotetric line work with landscape photography. If her work is new to you and you want to learn more, start here.

Minuscule by Maite Guerrero

While we’re on the theme of teeny tiny art, here are some fun photo manipulations by Barcelona-based Maite Guerrero. It’s rare anything digital like this makes it onto Colossal, but there is such care in how each one of these is created, the attention to color, depth, and scale makes these truly special. See more on Behance.

The Skewed Sculptures of Evan Penny

March 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Do not adjust this blog post, and no I didn’t have an accident in Photoshop. This is the recent work of Canadian artist Evan Penny who creates stretched and skewed sculptural portraits that tower over 9 feet tall. Some of his other work is actually hyper-realistic, in that he uses silicone and other materials to mimic the texture of skin and hair down to the detail of every last follicle on a large scale. In 2007 Penny began working with an advanced 3D scanning process that allows him to skew objects virtually and then print them in foam using a rapid prototyping method, using the resulting framework as a base for the rest of the sculpture. Awesome stuff.
