    The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment - is a developmental spelling - video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font's proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.

  2. In April 2010 a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it.

    As the year anniversary was approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking.

    So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.

    UPDATE: A few people have mentioned strange things with the audio. I've changed a couple audio settings and hope it fixes any problem people may have had.

  3. Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network.

  5. This year's titles for FOTB were created by Nando Costa through the use of macro motion pictures and materials with magnetic properties.

    The choice of materials was driven by the desire to graphically represent the concepts of attraction and repulsion. The idea that graphic artists of all sorts attend events such as FOTB because they are inspired and therefore attracted to each other's work, while at the same time often competing in the same fields as peers, which represents the repulsion factor.
