    “The birth of Venus” deconstruction by collage in stop-motion. The flower rain of the winged gods doesn’t work as it should do, so Venus turns into a siren. The different mermaids represent a trip around the siren’s history: the original siren with woman-head and bird-body; the pre-Raphaelite siren; and modern sirens, with contemporary models’ bodies (Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bundchen) with tail and singers’ head (María Callas and Imperio Argentina), whose voices attract the sailors in order to sink them in the deep sea. Finally, Venus turns into the Virgin Mary. This is a metaphor of the goddess’ history: firstly she was the goddess mother, secondly, she was Venus, and finally, she was Mary (the Christianity’s virgin).
    This work is inspired by Terry Gilliam’s stop-motion. We have used photographic material by David LaChapelle or Pierre et Gilles; painters as Waterhouse or Norman Rockwell; and concepts such as surrealism and post-modernism.

    Deconstrucción mediante collage stop-motion de "El nacimiento de Venus" de Botticelli. La lluvia de flores de los dioses alados no sale como debería y Venus se convierte en sirena. Las diferentes sirenas representan un recorrido por la historia de la sirena: la sirena primigenia con cabeza de mujer y cuerpo de ave; la sirena prerrafaelita; y las sirenas modernas, con cuerpos de modelos contemporáneas (Cindy Crawford y Gisele Bundchen) con cola de pez y cabeza de cantantes (María Callas e Imperio Argentina), voces que atraen a los marineros para hundirles en el mar. Finalmente, Venus se convierte en la virgen María. Esto es una metáfora de la historia de la diosa, que primero fue diosa madre, después Venus, y después María, virgen en el cristianismo. Este trabajo está inspirado en los collage stop-motion de Terry Gilliam. Se utilizó material de fotógrafos como David LaChapelle o Pierre et Gilles, pintores como Waterhouse o Norman Rockwell, y conceptos como surrealismo o postmodernismo.

  3. Johnny Kelly has created a beautiful hand-made spot that encapsulates the spirit of the Olympic goodwill.

    Using an innovative technique, Johnny uses stop motion to animate hundreds of individual paper collages, each hand-cut and torn.

    Filmed in one continuous shot, we are taken on a journey as each Olympic symbol seamlessly segues on into the other. The subtle differences and imperfections in colour and texture that this creates infuse the spot with a warm energy that communicates in a universal way the over-riding message of the Olympics - it’s a celebration for everyone, all shapes and colours.
