Amazing Waves – Sine Wave Animation by Daniel Sierra

Daniel Sierra animation1 Daniel Sierra animation3

Oscillate is the MFA thesis project of digital artist Daniel Sierra.  The animation begins with a simple rolling sine wave.  However, things quickly get complex.  The waves fling dust, begin to smoke, and seem to catch fire.  The waves multiply and mutate.  Oscillate is an impressive animation by any standard, especially considering it is a school project (albeit an MFA thesis project).  Also, you’ll notice the credits are especially short.  While such animations typically have a staff of several, Sierra animated and composed the music entirely on his own.  [via]

Awesome Video Of The Day: Good Man By Raphael Saadiq

Raphael Saadiq”s video for Good man is a great example of how to tell a story through music. So much music these days is just a bunch of nonsense with nothing behind it but Saadiq has hit a home run.I don’t even really like R&B and I love it!

Alexis Facca’s 3D Spaces Appear Like Two-Dimensional Graphics In “The Flat” Project

Alexis-Facca-Design-2 Alexis-Facca-Design-1

Latest collaboration between paper and set designer Alexis Facca and photographer Tom Joye transforms three dimensional spaces to look like flat, two dimensional paintings. With the creative use of angle and perspective, Facca and Joye were able to obtain the desired illusion and deceive the viewer’s eye.

The Flat Project actually features a miniature 1 x 1 meter set made from paper but in 3D. Seems like the set was flipped and turned to create images from various angles. Without knowing, it is hard to tell which is the floor or ceiling. Here’s an explanation by Facca on two of her creations:

“For example in the first image the red is the ground, the wood a wall on left and blue is in the foreground. On the second image (below) the ground is made with wood and the red.”

Video Watch: This Is It’s Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared

This Is It is a London film collective that make the great handmade-style films. Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is one of their latest, and uses their arts and crafts aesthetic to make a hilarious mock-children’s PSA about creativity. It’s delightfully nihilistic, self-aware, and taps into something all of us have probably felt in any sort of Creative endeavor, namely that “creativity” isn’t just the purely positive act that popular culture makes it out to be. This is one you need to watch to the end, it’s 100% worth three of your minutes. Full video after the jump!

Inside David Kinsey’s Studio and New Exhibit At Joshua Liner Gallery

Artist David Kinsey‘s upcoming solo exhibit, Everything at Once, opens at the Joshua Liner Gallery December 13, 2012.  Kinsey’s newest work reflects the intense nature of the show’s title.  Severe angles and color hint at a depiction of mounting chaos.  Several pieces, seem to be filled with a violent struggle for survival, domination, even attention.  These mixed media pieces document a world spinning out of control and a the desperate scramble to document it.  On this, Kinsey relates:

“Collectively, the developed world is swimming in modern media; we’re learning to navigate this landscape every day while becoming unwittingly addicted, for better or worse. And that’s simultaneously exhilarating and a little scary. Throw in climate change and you’ve got a scenario worthy of our attention.”

Dave Kinsey was the subject of the first interview in Beautiful/Decay’s now sold-out first issue.  Everything at Once will be on exhibit at Manhattan’s Joshua Liner Gallery December 13th through January 12th

Nate Turbow’s Special Brand of Mediocrity

Nate Turbow‘s drawings are released every few days via his blog and Tumblr. Each “cartoon joke” feels raw, off-the-cuff and honest. The blog format works well for the quick, one-off style of each cartoon as the post titles often act as captions.

The resulting collection is an acute sense of bumming through life — being both painfully aware one’s mediocrity and simultaneously not giving a shit.

NSFW if cartoon boobs are forbidden in your place of work.
