Levi Van Veluw

In his series Landscapes (the first 4 images), Levi van Veluw de-contextualizes various landscapes, digitally compositing them onto photographs of himself. In Material Transfers (the last 3 images), he does the same thing using random materials and without any digital manipulation. Interesting work.

    This is amazing! Transforming oneself to reflect an ecosystem? Pure genius.

    this is some incredible stuff here,
    the last three, and notably the first of the last three really grabbed me.

    I think the third and fourth are neat; ‘tamed’ rural land vs. unfarmed rural land.

    This would have been fiddly, but I think the rocks/pebbles one would look cool if you had a faucet off-camera above your head, and the water in a few rivulets/streams through rocks, over skin, creating streambeds

    I think one that shows ‘manicuring landscape’ would be interesting, like how obsessively we control some properties

    Also might be interesting to have one that shows development – part of the head really untamed wilderness, and part of the head with houses stuck on

    The first one reminds me of the tree characters in The Hobbit

Photoshopped Selfie Sticks Replace Guns in Popular Movies

Untitled-1

Been seeing a lot of these selfie stick images circulating the net recently and was trying to figure out where they were from. The image above, from Terminator (the best I’ve seen so far) was shared on Twitter last year. Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.

Animation: Yeasayer “Silly Me”

yeasayer-newmedia

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
