By day Willie Witte is a documentary filmmaker working on a PBS series, but he uses his evenings to experiment with analog visual techniques. None of the visuals in this video are computer generated. Watch below!

    Not computer generated? That was all made on a computer. Do you mean no 3d Computer models and animation?

      sure – if you want to split hairs i could have said effects instead of visuals so as not to imply the video as a whole -obviously the editing and uploading onto the Internet requires a computer. the point i am trying to highlight is that the creativity is taking place in front of a camera lens. cheers

    I think I’m… going to stop trying now…

      hahah

  • Hexaploid

    Confused… Is the implication here that this is all a continuous take? I don’t understand what is meant by “None of the visuals in this video are computer generated.” – if regular non-linear editing is being used then this is pretty straight forward. Clever, but not at all baffling. If there is no editing then, holy hell I have no idea how it was done.

    I’m still trying to figure out how you did this! Great work.

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
