1. Metropolis II by Chris Burden

A short doc about a kinetic sculpture that took four years to build. We had the honor of spending three days in Chris Burden's studio filming this sculpture before it was moved to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) where it is being reinstalled.
The installation opens fall 2011.
Chris Burden is one of our favorite artists of all time. For more about him and his work

Directed by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman
Edited by Max Joseph
Cinemtography by Schulman, Joost & Van Neistat
Music by Tortoise (Ten-Day interval) & Mahogany (Windmill International A)

Special Thanks to Zak Cook and everyone at the Burden studio...Tortoise, Mahogany, Jaclyn Slimm & Andrew Prinz.

2. Russ and Reyn

Russ and Reyn on Russ and Reyn:
Ideas first. And make them real. We try as hard as possible to shoot everything inside the camera.
You can't account for the perfect mistakes.

3. Chase No Face / BELL

Behind the Scenes:

A music video for BELL

Visuals by Zach Lieberman, Francisco Zamorano, Andy Wallace, and Michelle Calabro.

(note: no post-production effects were used in this video. everything on the face is happening in real-time, via hacked Kinect, laptop and LED projector. It's built using FaceTracker code from Jason Saragih)

4. Tarik Mikou

Tarik Mikou is a 33-year-old graphic designer from Montreal. I came across him in a few places all at one time and thought I’d share his work. About half of his work consists of smart designs for CD/DVD’s and posters for a variety of artists and musicians. Then, we have these wonderful modifications and coloring of classic black and white celebrity portraits of classic Hollywood royalty like Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn. These re-stylings are done under a body of work, hailing back to youth, that he calls ‘Be A Kid Again.’

7. Julien Simshäuser

I'm part of the first generation (22) that grew up with computers and a socially networked internet. Technology encourages me to push boundaries
within the field of visual art and design.
I love to collaborate with people to realize bigger projects.
Static, Motion, Interaction, Nature, Technology, Compelexity, Simplicity, Emotion, Information
Julien's work shows both originality and skill. He clearly displays an understanding of current design trends without relying on imitation.
Rob Carney, Computer Arts, 2009

MÖBIUS - Federation Square
A collaborative stop motion sculpture

Twenty-one large triangles animated by Melbourne, throughout Federation Square. MÖBIUS is a sculpture that can be configured into many cyclical patterns and behave as though it is eating itself, whilst sinking into the ground. The result is an optical illusion and a time-lapse of people
interacting with the sculpture and moving through Melbourne's landmark location throughout the day.

MÖBIUS was animated over two weeks Friday, Saturday & Sunday between the 6th - 20th of May 2011.
