The abstract ceramics of US artist Jason Briggs – porcelain, hair and steel sculptures with unlikely titles like ‘Angel’, ‘Blossom’ and ‘Baby’ grotesquely redolent of everything from sexual organs to cysts. Interpret them however you like, sez he:
…sculpture, fine art, fine craft, ceramic sculpture, figurative, abstract, surrealism, eroticism, non-traditional, biological, fucked-up, pornographic or, worst of all, decorative.
Lovely Christmas presents, in fairness.
A stop motion timelapse from filmmaker Jeff Frost combining 300,000 photographs taken over the last two years: from riots and decomposing roadkill to optical illusions painted by himself inside abandoned buildings. The film – vaguely intended as an exploration of ‘creation and destruction’ – was made without graphics or visual effects.
It’s quite the visual treat and, if you can spare 12 minutes, well worth watching right to the end.
A kaleidoscopic timelapse of Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles by photographer and filmmaker Michael Shainblum, who sez:
These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.
Full screen and HD for best effect.
