Would you buy this milk?

Clean, beautiful, and informative packaging design by Audree rethinks those nutritional figures we always take for granted. If everything we ate had this sort of packaging, would we still be eating it? Is ignorance bliss??

White Noise, The Digital Sculptures That Mixes Fashion Photography And 3D Animation

marie_05_04_marie-flipflop-wire_01 marie_05_black_4 snapshot09_0

Fashion photographer Per Zennstrom & 3D artist Torsten Weese collaborate on a multimedia project, White Noise Shores, that juxtaposes 3D technology with old-school photography in order to create sculpture compositions.

These beautiful shots resemble human bodies that mesh with what seems to be the digital fabric of what makes the basic 3D animation. The stunning compositions are strictly rendered in neutral colors and, at times, its vague composition is reminiscent of early abstraction (in that it is not fully abstract since it is somewhat figurative).

After the real-life photoshoot, the 40-50 still frames captured were uploaded into the free AutoDesk 123D Catch software which allows anyone with an internet connection to create real 3D models of virtually any object. The software stitches the images together and produces a 3D model in about 30 minutes.

The model acquired through the AutoDesk was then“sculpted by hand” in Sculptris to refine and enhance the digital sculpture. The next step was to hand the model over to Thorsten Japser Weese and his team at Recom-CGI for processing and editing. The camera flight and the rendering for the ANIMATION is done inf VRED professional and the passes were comped in NUKE and got little FX in After Effects. The team at Recom rendered a number of stills, video and 3D models which were then brought back to Per Zennstrom for final editing in Premiere and After Effects.

Milana Braslavsky

I know I may be partial to artists who went to the same  art school as me (Maryland Institute College Of Art) but Milana Braslavsky’s photographs are downright quirky, playful, funny, and most importantly Beautiful. For some reason all the figures in her photos remind me of quirky art school girls with thick rimmed glasses who listen to Buddy Holly albums on vinyl.

Chris Ede, who now lives in London (jealous), calls himself a “freelance contemporary illustrator who has recently relocated to London in search of his design fortune. [His] digitally manipulated fusion of hand-drawn and photographic elements equates to an exciting, multi-textured, conceptual and often humorous illustration style.” His illustrative style blends different layers of photography, computer graphics and hand-created elements.

It’s Monday! Can’t waste anymore time sitting in front of the boob tube rotting your brain away watching Jersey Shore reruns! But before you kick it into high gear watch this investigative and exploratory hands-on gloves-off study into the practice of putting things ‘off”. Sometimes the only way to get something done is to do two dozen other things first.

Conor Backman’s The Other Real At Nudashank

New York based Conor Backman recently opened a solo exhibition entitled The Other Real at Nudashank in Baltimore. From the press release: “Backman’s work conflates and oscillates between sculpture and painting, authentic and simulation, material and image, ironic and actual. For this exhibition Backman will present pieces informed by visual illustrations of otherness, physicality, mimesis, and deception in classical mythology and allegory. Specifically, examples that have been sited or recontextualized in modern psychology and philosophy as metaphors for the unconscious, perception, desire, and understanding.” The show in on view through April 28th, 2013.
