Efterklang in Vancouver

vancouver screening of efterklang and vincent moon film an island
If you live here in Vancouver, you might be somewhere in this photo! This is that night I screened Efterklang’s film “An Island”. I expected a few dozen and hundreds of you showed up!

Well, this Thursday Efterklang is playing at The Biltmore and you should all come! I’m not being paid to promote the show they are just friends of mine making incredible music. I think it would be cool if the Vancouver show was a tour highlight for them. Tickets are only $15.

See you there!

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!
