I think all 3D animation films should be centered around giraffes diving like "5M80" by Nicolas Deveaux.
Public sand on beaches is something we've seen before, but never 3D drawings like these from Ben Harkins.
“We’ve seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it’s always been geometric, flat shapes, like a pattern, so we thought we’d get into the whole 3D thing. And I kind of like the fact that it disappears at the end of the day when the tide comes in. It makes it impermanent.”
From the project page:
"MATAERIAL is the result of the collaborative research between Petr Novikov, Saša Jokić from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Joris Laarman Studio. IAAC tutors representing Open Thesis Fabrication Program provided their advice and professional expertise. During the course of the research we developed a brand new digital fabrication method and a working prototype that can open a door to a number of practical applications. The method that we call Anti·gravity Object Modeling has a Patent-Pending status."
Italian artist Francesca Pasquali has created these evocative 3D forms with thousands of plastic straws, with the end result reminiscent of the Organic Forms in Glass we saw a few weeks ago.
The artist explains:
"Even if plastc is a new material, the tecnique of interlacing it in preconstituted nets is connected to the past. It makes it live again in the shape of sculpture, which spreads out towards the space around, creating various texturzsed effects. Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms trasform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes."
