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!
1xRun put together a nice little recap video of Pangeaseed’s second annual Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival in Cozumel, Mexico. The event featured the work of many of our friends: Smithe, Caratoes, Cryptik, Faith47, Hueman, Meggs, Tatiana Suarez, Tristan Eaton, tons more. 11 artists from Mexico, and 35 artists in total, covered Cozumel in positive messages, paying respect to our beautiful oceans. Watch the video below.
Mexican artist Smithe painted one of my favourite murals at Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year; it was a collaboration with German artist Case, and you can see it here. When I first posted his work back in 2012 I didn’t realise that in addition to being an insane painter and illustrator he’s also a musician! His band, .Stendal will be playing SXSW this month!
Seeing his work nice and big in Hawaii took it to a whole other level for me. I love his line work and the way he colours his pieces. Take a look at some more images below.
