1 Second Everyday – Age 30

Posted by    |    July 30th, 2012 at 9:19 am

In a video reminiscent of the 2006 Youtube video, Noah Takes a Photo of Himself Every Day for 6 Years, Cesar Kuriyama has filmed one second of video in every day of his life.

Kuriyama gave a TED talk on the video, saying that he plans to continue this project for the rest of his life. “If I live to 80, I will have a five-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life,” he says. It is interesting to see how much of life we skip over in our memories: not every day for Kuriyama is action-packed and adventure-filled, but documenting the lazy days gives us an insight into not only Kuriyama’s life, but our own.

This may inspire thousands of budding videographers to engage in their own expanding one-second-a-day autobiographies, but Kuriyama’s dedication will definitely be a force to be reckoned with.

Jim Power and the Mosaic Trail

Posted by    |    July 27th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

 

Jim Power, also known as the Mosaic Man, has been adorning the lampposts of New York City’s East Village for almost thirty years. After giving up his union carpenter job, Jim began beautifying the once rough and tumble neighborhood, supported solely by the donations he received on the streets. His work eventually came to be known as the Mosaic Trail — eighty lampposts covered in mosaics representing significant areas and people of the East Village.”  Read this, the source of the material for our Dallas viewers.

Passion Pit

This comes directly from Vimeo.

“A heart broken museum security guard sees reality shift after abusing his medication, bringing him back to a glorified vision of his past love.

Each piece of art suddenly takes part in illustrating the love cycle surrounding him. From the triangle symbolizing Seduction (Gold), to the Fiery Passion that consumes a relationship (Yellow), the entangled and complicated Break Up (Red, Dynamite), ending up with the hopeful and healing Rebirth ( Green).

Permission to Explode

Posted by    |    July 23rd, 2012 at 4:37 pm

 

The following comes directly from Vimeo.

A collaboration between Atyp & Si Begg to promote his latest album.

The concept, and title of the project, are representative of how Si views his personal work, how he channels the deepest waveform generating corners of his mind into a controlled explosion of unique self expression.
Breaking out of the order and patterns of everyday life, Si views his artistic musical output as his own ‘Permission to Explode’.

Not a music video as such, more an experimental short intended to visually embody the sonic direction of the album. The challenge was to embrace the concept of hyper-creativity and attempt to harness this with the just the right amount of rhythm and order – It’s a tricky balance that has long been his trademark.

Our approach was to marry the multi-layerd, eccentric, characteristics of the album with an equally rich and complex approach. Drawing on a mixed media palette we combined 3D scanning, projections, stop motion, scripting, live action & CGI with the aim of creating a unique aesthetic in the true spirit of the project.
