An open ended narrative | Anne Siems

Under - Art, Inspiration

Anne Siems is a Seattle based, German-born, artist who creates narratives from everyday life.

At present, I continue with my interest in the human figure and the attributes that surround it. These attributes reflect something about the being without giving a specific narrative. Ideas about life and death, sensuality, sexuality, nature, experiences in the realm of dreams, psyche and spirit are my ongoing topic. A lot of inspiration for these pieces stem from my ongoing love for the art of the European Masters, Early American Folk Art, as well as vintage and modern photography… more

Here is an earlier post on Anne Siems’ work.

His work has been featured in leading magazines and TV shows around the world. With a BFA in printmaking from the University of Oklahoma, he spends his spare time wandering in the wilderness finding his subjects and waiting patiently for the perfect moment to snap.

McLaren vs Aerodynamics | The Found Collective

Under - Advertising, Inspiration, Media, Motion Graphics, Photography, Technology

We have seen iPad being used for light painting before but for this McLaren P12 teaser a plasma screen is used to render 3D animated light painting effect. The Found Collective in collaboration with Marshmallow Laser Feast and James Medcraft produced this stunning piece for the launch of McLaren’s P12 super car.

The goal for the project was to show the P12’s aerodynamic qualities in a whole new light, without actually having physical access to the car itself. Light painting has been around for decades but has never been put into full motion. Until now.

Working with McLaren we were able to process their wind tunnel airflow data and score out paths for individual trails of light. Each frame was then sliced into 650 frames that represent depths of 3D space and a plasma screen, mounted on a motion control rig, was used as a 3D light printer to play back the 650 slices as it moved through the space. We then repeated the move a thousand times for each frame of the animation and with each frame the camera, mounted on another motion control rig, moved a few millimeters so that over the course of the shoot we were able to create the effect of a moving camera.

The finished film merges photography, animation and sculpture and is a truly unique way of representing aerodynamics that we feel justly celebrates this astonishing car.

Ascendance | Henry Jun Wah Lee

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

Ascendance is a tribute to nature’s unpredictable power and beauty by Henry Jun Wah Lee.

I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring. Always be ready for a magical experience.
