  1. Last November, when I visited my friend Zach Klein in his Williamsburg apartment, I filmed this silkscreening session. I hope you like it.

  2. This is a timelapse shot over several months totalling about 10 hours cutting and then spraying a stencil.

    It still needs some tweaks to editing and motion, but it takes an extremely long time to render, and there are loads of other projects in the way, so I'd prefer to share it incomplete and warty rather than never showing it because it's not "perfect".

    Tech:
    Shot with a Pentax *ist DS Digital SLR. The frames were taken as quickly as the camera could record to SD card - about 1 frame every 1.7 seconds.

    The camera was immobile on a tripod, the pan and scan (or "Ken Burns Effect" if you want to be all photo nerd) was added later in After Effects. I shot medium-resolution images, which gave me 1500x1000ish pixels, allowing quite a bit of resizing and moving around the frame.

    The faster, motion-blurred action as the video progresses is also post-production, created by speeding up the clips and blending multiple frames together.

  3. I made a flip book in my philosophy notebook during my philosophy class. Don't worry I can pay attention and draw at the same time.

  4. Highlights of Glow 07 which took place in Newcastle & Gateshead between 4th-17th December.

    Glow 07 was a series of seven contemporary artworks and illuminations projected through light. Each exhibited an intimate and often absurd relationship to their specific environment. Glow 07 i brighten the darkest winter night and light up our cityscape in a totally unique way.

    Music
    The Cinematic Orchestra
    Song: Everyday
    Album: Every Day
