Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski have created yet another fantastic music video! This time we have a stop-motion for Shugo Tokumaru’s song, “Katachi”.

I’ve seen several videos utilize a similar special effect (this video for example) but I like what they achieved here by actually cutting each frame out of foam core and photographing them. Watch the animation below!

Previously posted Kijek and Adamski’s work here and here.

    What a great song to wake up to in the morning.

    Its the same principle as David Daniel’s stratacut technique. You can find a video that showcases some of his work that he did for MTV, PeeWee Herman, etc. here: https://vimeo.com/6523587 You can also find an interview of David Daniels and a demo of his stratacut technique here: http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/freaked/

    i’ve actually posted strata cut videos before – example: http://www.booooooom.com/2011/05/23/nicos-livesey-strata-cut-animations/

    its not really the same technique – this one involves making an animation and then printing out each frame and cutting them up and placing them in sequence. strata cut almost works backwards in that you are making a giant “log” and are cutting away slices. i actually like the idea of strata cut animations even more because theres a lot more unpredictability.

    i wish i could remember the name of the video but there was also a music video several years ago with all these japanese school girls holding poses for several minutes during a long tracking shot mimicking the idea of seeing all frames of movement at once. ill try to find it

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm


“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The additional framing transforms each piece into something quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
