Beautiful/Decay re-launch!

The good folks over at Beautiful/Decay are about to relaunch their publication with a bunch of exciting changes! They are doing away with all traditional advertising as well as increasing the size of each issue by 50%, meaning the new B/D will be 164 pages of pure inspiration! I’m not sure how they can afford to do this, it almost sounds too good to be true. However, limited runs released three times per year means you might wanna get a subscription.

Beautiful/Decay has supported Booooooom since day one and I’d like nothing more than to see them make a successful transition. Good luck guys!

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!
