A little less than a week ago, the Creators Project released a new video on kinetic sculpture Anthony Howe and his otherworldly art. His pieces are engineered, designed, refined, built and tweaked to create a hypnotic visual experience.
In the video below the Eastsound, WA-based painter and sculpture Howe walks through his creative process, from protoyping on the computer to finishing the sculpture by hand. The process is as fascinating as the finished pieces themselves.
Here is a little bit of Monday inspiration. If you use Chrome as your browser I suggest you take some time and check out this new immersive, interactive film from the Creators Project and Evan Boehm from Nexus Interactive Arts.
The video below is the trailer for the WebGL and HTML5 film called ‘The Carp and the Seagull‘. This short 3D environmental film was made using the WebGL standard that allows you to be immersed in a world where you embark on a dark journey.
Rendered in a wire frame polygon style The Carp And The Seagull’s look is reflective of the characters emotional and spiritual states, which takes place in a cube that the viewer can rotate. This allows the viewer to switch between the characters physical and spiritual worlds as the story unfolds in real-time.
This is a great example of where the web is going as designers and storytellers take advantage of HTML 5, WebGL, and other emerging technologies.
