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.

  • Awesome!

    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

    somehow the music video is now Smoke DZA…

An Elaborate Snow Drawing by Artist Sonja Hinrichsen

Another incredible snow drawing by artist Sonja Hinrichsen (previously featured here)! Made in the snow covering Lake Catamount in Colorado last year, the site-specific piece pays homage to the Yampa River which used to run through the valley.

Helped along by roughly 50 community participants, the group’s route not only coincides with the course the original river took, the abstract designs created from their tracks in the snow mimic the meandering flow of water. See more images of “Yampa River” below!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.
