What Goes Up: A Figurative Stop Motion

November 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I spotted this beautifully animated stop motion short by an artist named Lacey. In the words of my three year old son: “Oh dad, it’s a stick man! Oh oh oh no it’s a ROBOT! Ohhhhh NOW IT’S A LADY!!!” So that’s pretty much what you’re in for.

Chris Sauter: The Whole World

November 4, 2011

For his installation entitled “The Whole World”, artist Chris Sauter of San Antonio, Texas surgically extracted drywall components from the gallery walls and used the raw materials to construct a microscope and telescope. The kicker being that the footprints left by the removed pieces formed an amoeba-like slide and a starry sky. Sauter talks about his work and process in another fantastic documentary from
Walley Films (previously), who are quickly becoming my favorite art filmmakers of all time. Video stills above courtesy Walley Films.

 

 



Craft Documentary

Wonder Object: Playful Mechanized Objects by Gary Schott

I was unexpectedly delighted by this documentary short on jeweler, artist, and metalsmith Gary Schott who creates these small kinetic sculptures that produce tiny, intimate gestures. The attention to detail in each piece is astounding, from the early detailed sketches and balsa wood models, to the selection of materials, and even the color of fabric—all to create a tiny device, the sole purpose of which is to gently evoke a smile, to express, in the words of the artist, an action of love. The wonderfully produced video was shot and edited by husband and wife filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley of Walley Films out of San Antonio, Texas. (via junk culture)

I Look & Move

How fun is this new stop motion short by Russian animator Constantine Konovalov. Via Vimeo he says the concept was born from all the people “who were able to turn this world, to change something, build something, create something and do something that leaves a mark on our planet.” So, in essence, maybe this is how Steve Jobs saw the world, iPhone included.

Quantum Levitation

A representative from the Superconductivity Group at Tel Aviv University conducts a demo of quantum superconductors locked in a magnetic field for the ASTC. Excuse me while I clean fragments of my brain off my monitor. If somebody had shown me this in grade school I would be a physicist now. (via stellar)

Oona Rocks

Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.
