  • This makes me want to leave Stockholm. Very nice picture!

    • Max, don’t leave one of the coolest countries on earth based on this photo (which is v cool I admit). Leave knowing that you live in one of the coolest countries, experience what you can, get some perspective, then go home to re-experience your homeland. Scandinavia rules! Easy for us to say, we’re Canadian with Danish/Norwegian/English roots, and we’ve spent too litle time in your lovely country. We think Scandinavia should set the design rules for the world.

  • very very nice…

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!
