Shadow Is A Cyberpunk Dance Performance With Drones

Shadow - Rhizomatiks Elevenplay Shadow - Rhizomatiks Elevenplay

“Shadow” is a technological and artistic collaboration between design collective Rhizomatiks and dance troupe elevenplay. Featuring a dancer alongside three drones, “Shadow” feels like a cyberpunk performance from the future. It’s a surreal technodream of algorithmic and human elegance.

The strobe lights make the performance almost feel like glitchy stop motion. It also plays with shadow and light, by turns making the dancer’s shadow look larger than life and then, in the next moment, like a doll spinning on top of a music box.
Both Rhizomatiks and elevenplay hail from Japan, where they are a part of a wave of multidisciplinary artists that seek to explore the intersections of man and machine. In an interview with D&AD, Rhizomatiks says,
“We all have passion for and expertise in technical matters, and wanted to use this to set our imagination free across the disciplinary boundaries of design, art and entertainment. We like to challenge existing formats, from interactive to spatial design.”  (h/t Laughing Squid)

New Video by Sean Pecknold

A few months ago I had the pleasure of interviewing artist Sean Pecknold regarding his video work. He has a nostalgic, bittersweet charm to his works that evoke a feeling similar to discovering a sepia-toned portrait of your great grandparents and a dried rose from an undiscovered dusty cigar box in the attic. His animations often complement the music in strange ways, not creating direct narratives that “spell out” the lyrics of the song, but rather riff off the themes within the music in unexpected ways. He recently just completed a new video for Elvis Perkins in Dearland, a slowly sinking band presiding in a lit cave above a murky, watery world of ancient lion sculpture…haunting, beautiful and strange.

Yusuke Oono’s 360° Handcut Pop-Up Books

Japanese artist/designer/architect (and construction worker?Yusuke Oono was thinking beyond flat when she conceived her 3-Dimensional art books. First designing the layouts of each book (which includes titles like Sweet HomeJungle BookIn A Cheese, and a 360° Christmas Book) by hand and with the aid of design programs, Oono then uses a laser-cutter to carve out the highly-detailed dioramas that make up each page of the story. These pages are then bound together, creating a compiled book which more than pops out, but can be read in 360°.

Fitting for an intricate project, these ultra-creative art books are available for purchase, and even more interesting after viewing the dozens of process shots Oono posts documenting her process in intricate detail. (via colossal)

Elisa Strozyk

Here’s a lovely German artist to start your Thursday morning off right. Elisa Strozyk makes work that is beautiful and clean, but often seems to have a functional purpose. She creates wooden textiles, hand cuts her own wallpaper and even made a radiator that changes color as it heats up. Elisa has upcoming exhibitions in Frankfurt, Cologne and Milan.
