Just want to take a moment to wish you all a giant Happy New Year! I spent New Years Eve up on the mountain with my sister and hope to be up there lots over the next couple months, but rest assured I’ll be working harder than ever on the site! Thank you all for the support over the last six months – I look forward to inspiring you and being inspired by you all in 2009. Cheers!
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!
