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!

  • love the sequence with the scissors!

    • still trying to wrap my head around what goes into actually making this

      • Snapshots of videos and videos and snapshots? Top stuff

  • mind. blown.

  • awesome!

  • bob

    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

  • Oh the mind games!

  • amazing use of evenings.

  • benny boy

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

  • 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.

  • johan

    No….

  • nice surreal video!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
