SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters

Published on 22 Sep 2014

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

“Loving Vincent van Gogh

The world’s first feature-length painted animated film is being made in Poland, bringing Vincent Van Gogh paintings to life. “Loving Vincent” secured enough crowd funding cash to make it happen. Every frame of the film is an oil painting on canvas, using the very same technique in which Vincent himself painted to show the painter’s life.” …..click on the link to see the video on the story and the way the movie is being made…..

New Dioramas | Sohei NISHINO in London | deconarch.com   Leave a comment

“The Diorama Maps project is a joyous mixture of photography and cartography, inspired in part by the 18th century Japanese map-maker Ino Tadataka. To make his “Diorama Maps,” Sohei Nishino spends months in a city, exploring its many vantage points. During this time he shoots thousands of pictures, which he then painstakingly hand-prints, trims to size, and compiles into huge tableaux collages from which he issues the limited edition photographic prints in two sizes. The effect is not a traditional bird’s-eye view but a wonderfully fragmented, enlightened way of seeing three dimensions in one plane.”

“Artistect” Fuses The Styles Of Legendary Painters And Iconic Architects | The Creators Project   Leave a comment

“Artistect” Fuses The Styles Of Legendary Painters And Iconic Architects | The Creators Project.

“Italian illustrator Federico Babina has previously united famous architecture and movie postersbuildings and bands, and even created an architecture alphabet. For his latest graphic design series, he’s fusing iconic artists with architects who share similar styles or creative processes—even if not overtly apparent.

Artistect includes 25 images that combines the characteristics of Keith Haring and Willem-Jan Neutelings, Kazimir Malevich and Zaha Hadid, René Magritte and Diller Scofidio, and other iconic creatives. Though the artists’ overlapping styles may be extrapolated, Babina proves again that he’s got a knack for finding kindred creative spirits in artists from disparate fields. Kandinsky and Wright make sense together—like an expressionist’s pairing of ketchup and eggs.

See some artist-architect fusions below, and head to Babina’s site for more of his illustration syntheses. “
