A Short Animation Inspired by the Works of İlhan Koman
Plato Art Space is proud to present Candaş Şişman’s video dedicated to famous sculptor İlhan Koman produced for the exhibition İlhan Koman: Hulda Festival, a Journey into Art and Science opening on the 22nd September, 2010.
İlhan Koman’s unique design approach in his form studies also inspires contemporary art works. The video installation Flux by young artist Candaş Şişman can be defined as a digital animation which is inspired from the structural features of some of İlhan Koman’s works like Pi, 3D Moebius, Whirlpool and To Infinity... A red circle, which is colored in reference to the red radiators of Ogre, is traced in a morphological transformation which re-interprets the formal approach of Koman’s works. The continuous movement sometimes connotes the formal characteristics of Pi, 3D Moebius, Whirlpool and To Infinity..., as well as the original formal interpretations of the design principles of the works . In Flux, Koman’s design process in the making of the Pi series has been treated as the emerging of a sphere from a two-dimensional circle by the principle of increasing the surface; and that simple direction is re-interpreted in digital medium. Thanks to this, in the digital animation an entirely different form serial that does not resemble Pi yet remaining its design principle can be followed through the flow of a circle to the sphere. As a conscious attitude of the artist, this work is not designed in a direct visual analogy with Koman’s works. During the animation, none of the moments of the transforming form look like Pi or 3D Moebius, however the subjective reading of Koman’s approach can be observed.
With the integration of the sounds of various materials – which Koman used in his sculptures – Flux turns into an impressive spatial experience. Flux, also exemplifies that Koman’s work can be re-interpreted by the analysis and manipulation of form in the digital medium.# vimeo.com/15395471 Uploaded 797K Plays 15.3K Likes 356 Comments
My work so far in creating the visual side of "beta system 0.4" for [namethemachine]. This looks at many of the techniques and pieces I have been building with my new set of tools. Some parts are somewhat frantic, fast, and pretty 'loud' considering there is no music, but it shows quite a bit!
The general framework is 'automatically' animated and keyframed and is combined with a decent amount of knob and slider twiddling on the fly. This is the best take so far.
Also a submission for the Eye Candy For Strangers vimeo group/call for art.
Thanks for watching!

Far away from client briefings and style guides, no matter whether stop motion, graphic animation, typo animation, 3D or still images, every participant provided a 5 to max. 30 seconds clip on the subject "PAUSE".
Therefor everyone passed only the last frame of his animation to the next participant. Then this frame formed the beginning for the next clip and so on. Like the game "Chinese whispers" or "Stille Post" in german.
Finally we are happy to present the result...
A big thank you goes to everyone who supported this project!

Visuals for on3-startrampe (Bayerischer Rundfunk) and the german band FERTIG, LOS! performing "Wenn du mich brauchst". The animation was rear projected on a 8m x 2m screen in the studio.# vimeo.com/12023122 Uploaded 5,139 Plays 80 Likes 7 Comments
