F5 / Day One

My friend Andrew and I went to F5 today, and a lot of other people did too apparently. We had to snag seats in the balcony for the first part but moved to floor seats after lunch. It worked out because the presentations got better as the day went on. I was very excited to hear Asif Mian speak as part of 1stAveMachine’s presentation and speaking to him out in the lounge later on was a bonus.

The other highlight for me was The Blackheart Gang’s screening of The Tale of How:

I am definitely getting inspired out here!

  • i like how the second photo appears to have a giant rainbow angel moth.

  • Sascha

    Wow, that looks intense. Hope you’re having fun out there. Catch a Rangers playoff game.

  • Too bad I missed Blackheart Gang, the video looks great. I really enjoyed Moment Factory though.

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
