Battle of Branchage from seeper on Vimeo

Probably the coolest art piece I've seen in '09.

I'm still trying to figure out how they did it, but I can only imagine it won't take long for this kind of approach to become usual in our big cities, decorating the buildings and entertaining the passersby... you know, the "Brought you by Visa" kind of thing.

Well, I hope it takes a while before it happens. I'd hate if something so beautiful like this becomes so common that it becomes invisible.

Anyway, the name of the company who created and produced this piece is Seeper, and here's a link to their website. They have some other amazing stuff over there worth checking, like this other architectural projection mapping project, done at the Rochester Castle.

VOLVO SEES IT (pardon the pun)

Yes, it could have been a Honda UK ad, but man, the fact that this is a non-traditional approach to a very traditional car company makes me believe that, after all, there's some hope in this business.

That an intelligent someone, somewhere in Sweden, can still see beyond the reflective sheet metal - that blinds so many - and bring the soul of his brand to life.

Here's to you my friend. And also to those who created and delivered this beautiful idea for Volvo.



Very, very nice... What else can I say?



TEMPORAL : The Art of Stephan Doitschinoff (aka Calma) from Jonathan LeVine Gallery on Vimeo

If you think that a two month long production schedule is a long one, think again. This guy gives a different meaning to the word patience and accomplishment.

To paint a whole city: what a beautiful and painstakingly idea.

You can watch this film in a high-quality stream here and check some more of Stephan's work over here.



let yourself feel. from Esteban Diácono on Vimeo.

Continuing the music visualization theme... I've just found this mind blowing visual piece over Kristina Slade's Hot Cup Of Jack Squat site. It is called "Let Yourself Feel", and it was made by an argentinian motion graphics artist called Esteban Diácono.

It is hard to believe this was all done in After Effects since it really doesn't look a bit like it. Anyway, add this one in the "I wish I had done it" list. A simple great idea that I can watch for hours.
