Surreal Collages by Philipp Igumnov

October 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered these fun collages and illustrations by Moscow-based artist Philipp Igumnov. He strikes an intriguing balance in his work with many pieces being laugh-out-loud ridiculous while others are filled with a sort of sad, dreamlike melancholy. Whatever he’s doing, it works, and I found myself sad when I reached the end of his gallery so quickly.

The High Wheel

August 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

High Wheel is a fun video project by Maider Lopez where he effectively removes the main structure of a ferris wheel by using chroma key (the same concept as using green screen, except in this instance kind of in reverse). Made for the OK Center for Contemporary Art. (via lustik, i heart my art)

Stellar by Ignacio Torres

August 19, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Beautifully executed animations by Texas photographer Ignacio Torres from his series Stellar. Via his website:

This project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death. I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies. The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation. In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs. Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time.

These are just a selection of the series, click through to see the entire project. (via paranaiv)

I’m loving everything about the work of photographer Thomas Longo, his use of perspective, light, and a dark, brooding quality that gives me the chills. (via andrew harlow)
