An experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov featuring the movement of over two billion black and white spheres in a series of enclosed spaces.
The physics of each animation (flow, diffusion, pressure, etc.) is displayed by subtle text on the walls of each space. Zhestkov sez:
The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements or blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.
Leave the modern world behind and marvel at the canny woodcraft of the Primitive Technology channel, a chap in Queensland who makes all manner of ingenious devices in the wild using only natural materials – in this case, a monjolo, or water-powered hammer traditionally used to pound grain to flour or crush clay for porcelain.
A lamp designed by Leslie Nooteboom that projects animated patches of light on walls – mimicking the appearance of what the Japanese callkomorebi (patches of sunlight reflected off water or filtering though leaves).
The idea is to add soothing ambience to high rise spaces usually denied such simple pleasures.
