Chain Reaction

Last term my Sculpture I students had the option of creating a chain reaction sculpture and documenting it. This video created by Post Panic is the most artistic chain reaction I've seen (so far). Enjoy!

Wheel Of Life

This film is similar to stop motion, yet the paper sculpture stands on its own. The movements of each horse on the carousel are cut out so that when the carousel is spun it appears that the horses are moving. This reminds me of the work of "Horse in Motion" by Eadweard Muybridge. Muybridge's photographic study of horses in motion, which was spurred by a debate over whether all four horses hooves leave the ground while the horse is running, was a first step in creating moving pictures (movies/films).

Quote o' the Week

"A flower doesn’t count the number of bees that come nor does it pump its smell just when you walk by. Its nature, as is ours, is to expand itself no matter if anyone ever loves us back."
