It’s amazing how a simple move such as grouping similar colored objects together can completely change the dynamics between them and create a powerful visual.

A Stunning Surrealist Film Shot Through A Drop Of Water And IPhone Lens Reflects The Power Of Simplicity

film2 film1

Japanese designer Dan Tomimatsu’s latest project is a short film film entitled O: -les amants d’eau-, based on a poem by fukudapero. It is a five minute surrealist film narrated in Japanese and subtitled in English which provides an oscillating view of different sceneries, places, and objects.

The magnificent simplicity of this film lies in the technical aspects of how it was made: Tomimatsu shot a drop of water through the hole of a 5 Yen coin, through the lens of an iPhone. The coin was stuck to the lens of the phone in such a way that filming through it would allow a close-up of the drop of water. The result is a truly dreamlike sequence of images, which are tinted, filtered, and displayed through the drop of water. The film plays a lot with the notion of movement and the fluid, unpredictable nature of water.

In this sense, the drop of water provided a sort of natural lens for the film to be shot through as well as a new angle concerning the iPhone as a legitimate filmmaking device. His project underlines the role of new media and technology within the realm of filmmaking and the process of creating something simple yet so intricately beautiful as a film shot through a drop of water.

Light Art Performance Photography

Light Art Performance PhotographyLAPP-PRO, headed by Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza, brings the concept of light painting to another level. The situations captured in the photos seem to have broken any holds tethering them to reality. LAPP claim that “the pictures are one single photo, not a result of working on the computer.” Not to dispute the validity of their procedures or anything, but the photos so good that they stopped looking real. I’ve seen some cool light graffiti, but LAPP just brings the art form to a whooole other level. Maybe it’s because they look like characters from X-men battling evil at the cusp of apocalypse? Take a look and decide for yourself!
