Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury created this amazing animation for “Time To Go” by Wax Tailor and Aloe Blacc. It’s so well done that I was convinced parts of it were CG, but Darcy assured me over Twitter it’s all stop-motion. The crochetted creature’s little adventure was shot over the course of three and a half months (six days a week, 12-hour days). Watch below!
Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
Here’s a look at all the murals from POW! WOW! Long Beach 2016. I think this one above might be my favourite but tough to pick just one, lots of great stuff. All the images were shot by one of my favourite people on the planet, Brandon Shigeta. More images below!
