  • The attention to detail and space-age subject matter remind me of Rosenquist, even though these are b+w.

  • Riley
    • craig

      totally reminded me of robert longo. but i’m not sure if it reminded me of it in a good way. regardless nice hand skills . ..

        After a quick amount of research, (looking at the 2 artist sites) you can see the dates of the exhibitions where these works first appeared – Jonathan Zawada 2008, Robert Longo 2009. Blogs tend to take a little while to catch up on the latest works… If Longo’s were posted before Zawada’s, doesn’t mean his were first.

      • blame it on the collective unconcious

  • gorgeous work, I love how he mixes elements

  • makes me feel i need to practice more drawing!

  • Hey hey! Mario Galaxy FTW!

  • Lea

    M.C. Escher lost in space :)

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      LOVE this comment!!! sums up the work here perfectly ^^,

  • ben

    yeah, definitely a lot of great stuff going on here. A couple of these, however, aren’t given room to breath on their own, outside of the Longo comparison.

  • oceanchild

    i love the use of the helmet as a source of reflection. very cool.

  • cool stuff :]

  • Urrrica

    The last one just knocked my conceptual cock back in on itself. Nice!

  • Ben

    The picture that appeared to be a bunzi tree with the streak really fit the picture well

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!
