Luis

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

This is an incredible piece of stop-motion video created by Niles Atallah, Cristobal Leon and Joaquin Cociña. I like it very much except the unnecessary swearing towards the end.

Luis is the 2nd short video of the series ‘Lucía, Luis y el lobo’ (‘Lucía, Luis and the Wolf’), it is a follow-up to the short video Lucía. The video was shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera.

Viewer discretion is advised: Lot’s of swearing toward the end

Papierkrieg (paper war) by Makaio

Under - Inspiration, Media, Motion Graphics

I watched this interesting video on Vimeo few days back and liked it very much. Thanks to Makaio (aka Matthias) for translating his wonderful short film from German to English especially for LivingDesign. I hope to see more of his work coming online soon.

Papierkrieg:

The two-minute short film ‘Papierkrieg’ tells a story about two kids, arguing about whose paper plane is the best. Everything in the children’s imagination seems to become real and functioning. Rapidly they get mad at each other and start a race of arms until it comes to the final clash with weapons of mass destruction where nobody could end up as a winner.

The film deals with the fact, that kids have the possibility to break the borders of the real world through their infinite creativity. On one hand the story shows children’s playful fantasy and on the other it refers to situations in the real world (e.g. political debates).

Translation:
Boy: My airplane is the best one in the whole world. It even has a jet engine!
Girl: Mine has super cannon, which shoots fireballs!
Boy: Mine deflects them with a tennis racket!
Girl: Mine grills you with a flamethrower!
Boy: Doesn’t matter, it has undestructive-paint!
Girl: You’ll stop laughing after my army of killer bees attacks you!
Boy: But i got a flower bouquet…
Girl: ?
Boy: …of carnivorous plants!
Girl: Acidic rain!
Boy: Protective umbrella!
Girl: Gigantic shredder!
Boy: Soup spoon!
Girl: Shotgun!
Boy: Spider web!
Girl: Hammer!
Boy: Teleporter!
Girl: A-booomb!

Sound, form and space

Under - Art, Design, Inspiration, Media, Motion Graphics, Music, Poetry

This brilliant piece of work, Syn Emergence, was conceived by Rich Bevan as part of Masters at the Bartlett School of Architecture – examining his associative relationship between sound, form and space.

The project is constructed according to a range of specific sonic and spatial scale rule sets (micro, component, meso and macro) which I designed as part of a cross-disciplinary notation/cartographic system.

Bringing Books and People Together
Like no other human activity reading opens up our imagination. It enables us to understand those around us. It allows us to project the future and reach back into the past. Reading can entertain, challenge and educate. We believe that reading can transform people’s lives.
