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!
We’re been posting lots of animation over on Booooooom TV lately, and hopefully a healthy mix of things you haven’t seen before. Here’s a few recommendations:
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.
If you’re an animator looking for inspiration make sure you peep the animation section of Booooooom TV. We’re working hard to make it a collection of the best animated work on the Internet. Here’s a few recommendations:
BONUS: Missed posting this one when I was away in Japan – “Johnny Bubble” by Alan Resnick is an absurd masterpiece.
Check out the latest batch of 3D-printed sculptures by artist and inventor John Edmark (previously featured here). Based on the same geometrical ratios found in nature, Edmark’s spiralling “Blooms” come to life when spun under a strobe light specifically synchronized to flash at every 137.5º turn. See more images and full video by filmmaker Charlie Nordstrom below!
Described as a “surreal trip through the mundane”, familiar scenes become strange as you work to unlock hidden ecosystems within 10 different environments. Perhaps more art than game, it’s definitely a unique experience! Check out more images below.
