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!

Animation: Penguin on a Trampoline

Penguin jumping on trampoline
It’s a penguin on a trampoline what more do you want! I’m trying to figure out what I find so satisfying about this silly animation by Bashir Sultani. I think it’s the ending, or maybe it’s just my undying love for Pingu. You can watch the full clip below. Bashir also makes drawings using salt (which you can see below) but I’d like to request more penguin animations.
