These storybooks by Japanese designer and architect Yusuke Oono open up 360-degrees, transforming into an incredible 3D storytelling experience. While Oono’s original designs were so labour intensive they couldn’t be mass produced, Snow White and Mount Fuji have been made available thanks to Loftwork, (the company who sponsored the design contest where Oono’s work gained recognition) and book publisher Seigensha.

French artist JR and acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky unveiled their collaborative project, The Standing March, on November 29th and 30th in Paris. While the city has banned protests for security reasons after the recent terrorist attacks, the images of over 500 people were projected onto the Assemblée Nationale building as a form of silent protest related to the United Nations conference on climate change. The piece, which also features music from 3D (of Massive Attack), will tour from December 1-7, at various locations. Watch the short video feature (directed by Vincent Lorca) below!
Kinda like a highly-advanced tape gun, only one that gives you a sense of how furniture will look/feel in your home before you go to the hassle of installing it. Video of the Protopiper by German tech university Hasso Plattner Institute’s The Human Computer Interaction Lab below!
You may have seen these drawing videos circulating the Internet! Stefan’s 3D drawings are so striking it’s hard to fathom how he’s been able to master this technique and make it look so simple. We created a little compilation of some of his most mind-bending drawings and asked him a few questions about creating them. Watch the video above and read the short interview below!
Amazing work by paper artist, Calvin Nicholls. Carefully formed from an initial hand-drawn template, the haut-relief effect is achieved through a meticulous process involving X-ACTO knives, scalpels, scissors, glue, and of course, a whole lot of time. A single piece can take weeks, and for the more elaborate ones, years to complete! More images below.
Studio Ghibli founder and iconic animator Hayao Miyazaki is working on a 3D animation about a caterpillar named Boro! The only hitch: the ten minute short will take about three years to make. And once it’s finished it’ll be screening exclusively at the Studio Ghibli museum in Japan.
“I intend to work until the day I die. I retired from feature-length films but not from animation. Self-indulgent animation,” he said at the time in reference to his short films for the Ghibli Museum. He added then that while neither CG animation or hand-drawn animation is better than the other, he fears the latter is dying.
“I think talent decides everything. More than the method, what’s important is the talent using it. There’s nothing inherently wrong or right about a method, whether it be pencil drawings or 3-D CG. Pencil drawings don’t have to go away, but those who continue to use the medium lack talent. So sadly, it will fade away” – Hayao Miyazaki (source)
