What we do when it snows…

Vancouver is finally getting some snow! Here I am looking very excited (and wearing the exact thing I am in every single photo on this website – it’s like I am a poor clown with only one costume). The reason I am excited is because this snowy weather can only mean one thing… (there’s a hint somewhere in this picture)…

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!
