The recent graduates from the London-based agency, Start Judge Gill, have created a neat little animation to show off their graduate academy and to help find the next batch of the most passionate and dedicated graduates out there including Creatives, Moving Image, Account Handlers, IT Wizards, Digital Developers and Electronic Engineers. Woah. We’re impressed.
Barry Underwood builds on-site installations to create stunning photographs. Using long exposure camera techniques, he creates light paintings in many of his photographs, but not like any you’ve seen before. Inspired by cinema, land art, and contemporary painting, the resulting photographs are both surreal and familiar.
Choi and Shine have designed a series of giant electric pylons for the Icelandic Pylon Competition. They are described as being powerful, solemn and variable and that seeing the pylon-figures will become an unforgettable experience, elevating the towers to something more than merely a functional design of necessity. It certainly would get my vote.
This is a video I made to capture the snow around London and the fun it had bought with it. It’s not very often that London gets snow as much as this, so it was a lot of fun to be in the middle of it all. Everything was all shot in one day on [...]
Belly is an award-winning animation created by Julia Pott. As described on her website: ‘Julia employs awkward animated characters to act out her inner confusions’. Her unique style is cute, but a little disturbing.
I’ve had the pleasure seeing this Texas-based band a few times in the UK at some really intimate gigs. As an avid post-rock fan, This Will Destroy You have to be one of my favourite instrumental bands, their sound consisting of atmospheric melodies driven by the simple plucking of chords from the five string bass.
Headache is the latest project I’ve created for my degree in Digital Art and Technology at Plymouth University. It is an interactive installation that portrays human emotion expressed online. Through interacting with Headache, you get a glimpse into the feelings of unwitting contributors as it speaks out and displays uncensored text from blogs and social [...]
I heard of Ruairi Glynn’s work as he is a graduate from the course I’m currently doing. His new work, Motive Colloquies, is an interactive installation and performance art piece that interacts with the audience’s gestures. It’s inspirational, quite creepy, and a lot of fun to interact with.
Brazil-based Douglas Khozam really caught my eye with this animation. The use of tracking, stabilisation and tiling is rather amazing. These are also some very inspiring editing techniques.
Human cameras? I know right! Photography students Luke Evans and Josh Lake ate 35mm film squares, letting their bodies do the rest. This created some very impressive results. Once the film was retrieved, they were examined and scanned using an electron microscope. Wow.
