I thought this collaboration needed a mention – stunning diverse animations. Coalition of The Willing is a film that discusses how we can use new internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change.
Stumbled on the great footage whilst browsing on vimeo. A really nice selection of shots showing timelaps and slow motion. Nice to see what these canon camera’s can do!
I just spent two days here in Oslo at a seminar called visuelt with the theme of fast forward//rewind. Overall I thought the first day was the best! Eike K√∂nig from Hort based in Germany gave a very honest and inspiring story of the history of his studio. Joel Lewis from www.hellicarandlewis.com and www.yesyesno.com was very enthused about all new ways of interaction and projection based technology. Siggi Eggertsson from Iceland had his whole speech in a computer voice (very strange!) – not to say his illustration work wasn’t interesting. One more worth mentioning is Joshua Hirsch from Big Spaceship – he talked a lot about making real time for personal projects within his company. I am now officially inspired! See a comprehensive overview here!
There’s been a lot in the world of motion of late to do with data visualization. I think there is something very interesting about taking real-world data and creating art out of it. Onedotzero Festival Identity is a nice example of using tweets to create a nice looking bit of motion. To gather current data (of even real time) that means nothing to most people and then transform it into something that has more meaning to your average joe blog. I really enjoyed the following examples… especially in light of the recent European ash storm!
I remember working with Simon back in the see.com.au days. Stumbled across his fantastic work.
