January 4, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Last year artist and photographer Kien Lam quit his job and bought a one-way plane ticket to London. Camera in hand he embarked on an epic backpacking journey around the world shooting over 6,000 photographs that he compiled in this lovely short video set to music by William Lam. Resisting… urge… to buy… plane tickets. Beautiful work. (via stellar, gizmodo)

Christmas Card to Friends: An Origami Snow Globe

December 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It’s so rare that I encounter motion graphic work that I find compelling these days, I don’t think that has anything to do with the industry, it’s just my personal taste. This clip is really special though. Created by Stephen Fitzgerald and Nathan De Ceasar and set to the music of Grant Harold, Christmas Card to Friends was inspired by the accomplished origami works of Robert Lang, Stephen Weiss, Yusuke Muroya, Petr Stuchly, and Beth Johnson. It’s fun to see all that paper goodness in motion, breaking the constraints of a tiny glass snow globe.

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.

This is a killer claymation test by animator Peter Sluszka. I can’t imagine how much time it must have taken to accomplish something like this. Really hope it’s part of something longer. (via stellar)

To Give a Present

December 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Animator Kirsten Lepore (previously) was asked by children’s TV show Yo Gabba Gabba to create a stop motion short on the theme of gift giving. This could have easily been done quickly and predictably, but in Lepore’s capable hands it became something wholly more amazing. Adorbs. (via vimeo)
