At least temporarily, as this ridiculous semester is coming to a close. Studio finished yesterday, just one project due tomorrow and a final Friday and that’s it! I’ll be putting my studio project and analysis projects up here, maybe this week. I’m fairly proud of both of them, although I have no idea how I actually did on either of them. However this post is not about me, but about this cool video my friend sent to me. The premise is a collaboration of several types of art, culminating in the video and also an exhibition of art. It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a long time. (There is a “making of” video on the website that’s pretty great too.) The artist is Ryan Woodward, who is a storybook artist and a professor among other things and he worked on cool things like Ironman 2 and Spiderman and the likes. This is his attempt to do something less Hollywood, and get back to just creative expression. I’m really glad he did!
I love the ephemeral quality, it feels so delicate. And the dancers and the choreography are incredible. Somehow crossing mediums has made it all more powerful.
I can’t embed the video because I have no idea how, but follow this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBk3ynRbtsw
