Platige Image: Ark
Grzegorz Jonkajtys and Marcin Kobylecki’s Ark spins the Biblical survival tale into a darker modern narrative. Filmed using a Nikon D70 equipped with a MILO Motion Control system, Ark follows the journey of a Noah figure whose world has ended—or, at least, he believes it has. The set included a number of miniature handmade models, and a Spiderman figurine was used as a reference object for the Noah character’s position in each shot. Jonkajtys and Kobylecki used matte painting and animation to bring the set and their protagonist to life.
Valentina Athanasiou: Experimenting With Sound
Commuting is scarcely—if ever—a serene experience, especially when taking public transit. As an ode to the London Undergound, Valentina Athanasiou created a sound recording of a trip from Edgware Road to Kings Cross. Then, as a sort of reprise to the audio component, she produced a visualization of the sound. It appears at first glance more like a stylized reading from a heart monitor than sound data, but using the color-coded companion key, reading Athanasiou’s data visualization begins to evoke memories of riding the metro.
Vlad Anghel: Fall 2012 Sweater Collection
In keeping with fashion’s take on the New Aesthetic, Vlad Anghell’s Fall 2012 sweater collection showcases designs made in Processing, featuring larger-than-life, flower-like shapes that recall Georgia O’Keeffe’s portraits. Right now the collection is just a concept (like Sexy-Sweaters or Bad Smelling Boy), but his prints are available for purchase online.
