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.

How Chicago Cancels Fireworks

July 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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)

Animals

Christopher Jobson

Perhaps a counterbalance to yesterday’s extinction calendar, this wonderful animal video shot on location in Costa Rica by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Douglas Burgdorff. I giggled to read “you just out Malicked Malick with this” in the comments on Vimeo, as I was thinking this is what an episode of National Geographic would look like if directed by Terrence Malick. Visual poetry. Set to Time Lapse by Michael Nyman, and beware bug eating.

Un-Melt

March 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

In Chicago we’re about to cross the 50 degree mark for the first time in 30 years. Or at least it feels that way. This video by Tony Round shot for a Gizmodo video challenge seems like a good sendoff to a pretty nasty winter. I could watch spontaneous snow forming like this for hours. Beautiful.

Chicago Mirrored Time-lapse

December 20, 2010

Christopher Jobson

It's crazy how a simple mirror filter can transform a video into something else. from Craig Shimala on Vimeo.

I’m having difficulty putting into words the awesomeness of this video by Craig Shimala. I think my amazement rests in the simplicity of its production: a GoPro Hero HD mounted to the front windshield of his car, and a mirror effect applied with Vegas Movie Studio HD — and yet the results are mind-blowing.
