The North Wind Blew South is a tilt shift/stop animation piece by Keith Loutit. This technique create a nice animation that feels as if you are watching models of real people, objects, etc. move about. The music and imagery work well together and create a relaxing video that I really enjoyed.

In case you didn’t notice I took last week off but am back and ready to bring you some awesome new content. So first up is The Photo Argus, which is a spanking new photography resource.
I saw this featured on drawn and had to feature it as well. Martin Wilson takes these photos in sequence with a 35mm camera and scans the strips to be pieced together on the computer.

The work was taken using garments and materials left behind after the death of a family member. Amy captures a real sense of movement in these photos. These really need to be seen as a part of the series so checkout her site for more.

Tree #1, from the series Photography-Act, 2007
This work reminds me, on a much smaller scale, of Christo’s Running Fence. I guess the starkness of the white canvas used to cut into nature is where I find the similarity. One key difference is this piece was designed to have one point of view. Pieces like this one cause me to think about man made objects and how they interact with and chnage our landscape.
Simple in concept, complex in execution, Lee makes us look at a tree in its natural surroundings, but separates the tree artificially from nature by presenting it on an immense white ground, as one would see a painting or photograph on a billboard.

In this digital age I found the following explanation by the artist to be necessary. “these are analogue images of the refraction patterns of a beam of light passing through various transparent objects (in this case a piece of textured glass). The image is captured directly on to 35mm film, no camera lens is used ( this is a photogram using film instead of photographic paper), the transparent object replaces the lens. Colour is introduced by placing specially prepared coloured filters directly in the light beam. This is an analogue image and has not been computer generated or colour treated. The colours you see are a faithful reproduction of those captured on film.”
