Art

Making the Invisible Visible

December 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

For a second year, street art collective Mentalgassi has partnered with Amnesty International and Wieden + Kennedy creative team Lisa Jelliffe and Kirsten Rutherford to help highlight some of the year’s most prominent human rights abuse cases playing out around the world. Via Unurth:

This year the German street art collective have created work that appears in 26 sites across Wales, Ireland, Germany and Denmark. The 6 individuals highlighted in this year’s work include Fatima Hussein Badi, who faces the death penalty in Yemen after an unfair trial, Jabbar Savalan, who is in prison in Azerbaijan for his peaceful anti-government activism (including comments he made on Facebook), and Natalia Estemirova, a Russian human rights activist whose murder has not been brought to justice.

Mentalgassi transformed large portaits of each individual into segmented strips that are applied to the slats of fences. At first the images aren’t readily visible and only come into focus suddenly from extreme angles, reinforcing the campaign’s theme, ‘making the invisible visible‘. (via unurth)

Just spotted this wonderfully crafty stop motion piece from director Kevin Parry that follows the history of the world from the big bang through, well, I don’t want to ruin it. Lovely work. (via the awesomer)

A wonderful collection of one second video clips from the first round of the Beauty of a Second short film competition run by Leo Burnett Milan to promote the Montblanc luxury chronograph. Every once in a while viral marketers get things right, and this is one of those times. (via vimeo)

Animation on a Bike

Here’s a wonderful zoetrope animation using paper discs mounted on bicycle wheels by Katy Beveridge as part of her 3rd year dissertation project at CSM in London. Beveridge mentions being partially influenced by the technique of Tim Wheatley who has also explored the ideas of bicycle-wheel animation. See many more zoetrope videos previously on Colossal.

Interview with Federico Uribe

November 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Here’s a great interview with one of my favorite artists, Federico Uribe (previously) who uses repurposed objects like athletic shoes and hardware to create sculptures of animal and plant life. The video captures numerous shots of his current exhibition, The World According to Federico Uribe at the Boca Raton Museum of Art that’s still up through December 4. One of my favorite quotes from the video: “In time I learned that celebrating life was better than complaining about it.” Words to live by. The interview was produced and directed by David Marin of Pelicruise Film Group. (thnx, david!)
