Dream Music II: A Trippy Stop-Motion Music Video Made from 15,000 Stills

August 22, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This new music video from Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams starring Beau Brigham was shot over a six month period in two states and is the second part of a two part series that explores some interesting ideas in animation and what they describe as “lyric lapsing”. According to the producers the final edit is comprised of some 15,000 stills and involved 6-8 hours of work to produce just 3-4 seconds of footage. I urge you to stick with it for at least a minute as there are some increasingly amazing sequences after that. (via booooooom)

A Giant Labyrinth Constructed from 250,000 Books

August 1, 2012

Christopher Jobson

The cavalcade of art projects surrounding the 2012 Summer Olympics in London continues today with the completion of this enormous book maze designed and built by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo (and over fifty volunteers) at Southbank Centre. Entitled aMAZEme, the stacked and twisting labyrinth based on a fingerprint belonging to writer Jorge Luis Borges was built using 250,000 remaindered, used and new books, most of which are on loan from Oxfam and will be returned after the exhibit. The piece covers over 500 square metres, with sections standing up to 2.5 metres high and will be on display in the Clore Ballroom through August 25th. Watch the time-lapse video above to see the entire project come together, the volunteers worked through the night for five days to finish in time.

Video Timelapse of Kurt Perschke’s Giant Inflatable RedBall UK Project

July 18, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This summer, New York artist Kurt Perschke brought his famous RedBall project to the UK for the first time, installing his massive inflatable red ball in a total of 20 sites around the country. Photos of the public installations flooded the news and photo sharing sites like Flickr and Instagram, and I tried to live vicariously through them and imagine what it might be like to stand in the completely transformed spaces inhabited by this giant red sphere. Lucky for us filmmaker Danny Cooke was on hand during the entire RedBall UK trip and edited together this fantastic timelapse of the installation as it moved from location to location around the country. I recommend sitting back and watching it much larger for the full effect.

A Yoga Sand Sculpture and Time-Lapse Video

December 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Similar to a camera capturing multiple exposures in a single image, artist Katie Grinnan created this sculptural time-lapse of her body moving through a daily yoga routine using sand, plastic, and enamel. The end result is representative of both time and form as each split second is layered onto the last creating what is both a singular figure and many. Ginnan describes this as an exploration of “peripersonal” space. “Mirage focuses on the concept of peripersonal space, the space that your body encompasses at its most extended point in every direction, which describes the body’s potential boundary.” Images courtesy Brennan and Griffin. If you like this, make sure you’re familiar with the works of Sukhi Barber and Paige Bradley.

Speaking of yoga and the passage of time, I found this time-lapse video of Meghan Currie’s yoga routine set to Philip Glass pretty enchanting if not completely exhausting. I knew certain poses required extreme flexibility and strength but this just seems like inhuman endurance.

Incredible Time-lapse Capturing Exterior Painting of Sprawling Russian Industrial Plant

October 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Moscow-based filmmaker Sasha Aleksandrov captured this dramatic exterior paint job of what appears to be a cold-war era industrial plant. Aleksandrov shot everything by hand over a period of two months without the use of a steadicam or camera track slider&em;meaning he would move the camera and tripod every few feet, capture some footage, repeat 50 times, then used software to stabilize the final shots. The film takes what must have been a grueling physical process involving countless workers and makes it look almost fun.

This year due to budgetary restraints Chicago cancelled it’s annual 4th of July fireworks show. This 2-minute timelapse, shot on Western avenue facing the Lake Michigan shoreline, shows how many of us feel about that. Fireworks are of course banned within city limits. (via gaper’s)
