        http://www.daiheishibata.jp/lightoflife Life is transparent, warm and swirls randomly like a soft light. And it constantly changes... Life illuminates itself and then it begins to illuminates a new life. A sprouted mass of innumerable lights become a flow before long, and then become the part of the life-throb of ages. That ties life, this moment now. -- Director : Daihei Shibata Piano : Naomi Yaguchi Music : Debussy "clair de lune" -- Stash DVD Magazine Issue 68 SIGGRAPH 2010 Computer Animation Festival - Electronic Theater Cannes Lions - Saatchi & Saatchi NEW DIRECTORS' SHOWCASE 2010

                A metaphorical short film about bikes, movement, freedom and love. Every day mind tries to get the better of heart. Space and time have always existed and we can’t stop them. Throught the movement we discover ourself. Speed is like curiosity. A crash between two bodies. To remember us that we are not alone. The video has been realised between Montréal and London. It combines 2d and 3d motion graphics and video footages. Main tools: Adobe AI, PS, AE; Apple FCP; Maxon C4D; Sony Ex1-Cam. (Watch it fullscreen and turn the volume up! ;-) )

                  Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JasonSilva @JasonSilva and @notthisbody Special thanks to filmmaker/photographer Rob Whitworth for allowing a clip from his video (https://vimeo.com/32958521) to be featured. Check out his website: www.robwhitworth.co.uk My videos: Beginning of Infinity - http://vimeo.com/29938326 Imagination - http://vimeo.com/34902950 INSPIRATION: The Imaginary Foundation says "To Understand Is To Perceive Patterns"... Albert-László Barabási, think about NETWORKS: “Networks are everywhere. The brain is a network of nerve cells connected by axons, and cells themselves are networks of molecules connected by biochemical reactions. Societies, too, are networks of people linked by friendships, familial relationships and professional ties. On a larger scale, food webs and ecosystems can be represented as networks of species. 'For decades, we assumed that the components of such complex systems as the cell, the society, or the Internet are randomly wired together. Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From, writes about recurring patterns and networks: “Coral reefs are sometimes called “the cities of the sea”, and we need to take the metaphor seriously: the reef ecosystem is so innovative because it shares some defining characteristics with actual cities. These patterns of innovation and creativity are fractal: they reappear in recognizable form as you zoom in and out, from molecule to neuron to pixel to sidewalk. Whether you’re looking at original innovations of carbon-based life, or the explosion of news tools on the web, the same shapes keep turning up... when life gets creative, it has a tendency to gravitate toward certain recurring patterns, whether those patterns are self-organizing, or whether they are deliberately crafted by human agents” “Put simply: cities are like ant colonies are like software is like slime molds are like evolution is like disease is like sewage systems are like poetry is like the neural pathways in our brain. Everything is connected. "...Johnson uses ‘The Long Zoom’ to define the way he looks at the world—if you concentrate on any one level, there are patterns that you miss. When you step back and simultaneously consider, say, the sentience of a slime mold, the cultural life of downtown Manhattan and the behavior of artificially intelligent computer code, new patterns emerge.” Geoffrey West, from The Santa Fe Institute, "...Network systems can sustain life at all scales, whether intracellularly or within you and me or in ecosystems or within a city.... If you have a million citizens in a city or if you have 1014 cells in your body, they have to be networked together in some optimal way for that system to function, to adapt, to grow, to mitigate, and to be long term resilient." Author Paul Stammetts writes about The Mycelial Archetype: He compares the mushroom mycelium with the overlapping information-sharing systems that comprise the Internet, with the networked neurons in the brain, and with a computer model of dark matter in the universe. "Adrian Bejan takes the recurring patterns in nature—trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts—and reveals how a single principle of physics, the Constructal Law, accounts for the evolution of these and all other designs in our world. Everything—from biological life to inanimate systems—generates shape and structure and evolves in a sequence of ever-improving designs in order to facilitate flow. River basins, cardiovascular systems, and bolts of lightning are very efficient flow systems to move a current—of water, blood, or electricity.
