    you should mention how they are made with dust!

    • i wasn’t exactly sure what that meant when i read it, i guess she uses the dust and seals it and then paints over? maybe she can clarify!

    alison- thanks for sharing your work. Love the large scale and chiaroscuro of your pieces. Where did you learn to disegnare/”draw”. Che bellezza!

  • The backgrounds of these paintings are made from the dust of the subject’s home. It’s literally glued onto the canvas and sealed with a fixative. I add more dust with acrylic medium to create the shadows. http://www.allisoncortson.com Thanks!

  • Victoria

    beautiful and highly original pieces! Congratulations

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!
