And the people bowed the head and worshipped. 28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they. 29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. 30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. LYRICS by David King, aka Duke of Uke: DEATH: Falling stars you wished upon are cinders now and now they're gone their residue festoons my fetid field. Unfeeling husks of lovers past the shells are all that ever last I've taken everything that they concealed. Whoever told you life was fair? Look around you, everywhere the cruelty of nature is displayed! Why the scorn? Why the surprise? Everything that's born must die and it isn't I who made the world that way. What wicked little twist of fate placed you here upon my plate Here, where no one hears your cries? Where was your god to steer you through Perhaps your god's forsaken you Otherwise why lead you here to die? BA (spirit of the dead): I, I know the way how I'll melt away now I know the way. I'm feeling bliss now Dissolved to mist how strangely I go away Now I finally know DEATH: It's merely moments now, moments now until your feeble flesh bends to my will and it will so rest your weary head. There'll be no pain, no pain at all as everything you are dissolves Your fate resolved upon my silky thread. BA: I, I know the way how I'll melt away now I know the way. I'm feeling bliss now Dissolved to mist how strangely I go away Now I finally know (repeat)

      Awards: Adobe Design Achievement Awards — Semifinalist Business Card for Self Promotion in 2011-2012 For Print Only Awards http://www.underconsideration.com/fpoawards/ Featured on: The Great Wall of Oakland 2012 "About Oakland, By Oakland" CutOut Fest 2012 Official Selection Communication Arts News — Communication Arts KickStartBoom motion design and culture blog — KickStartBoom.com Quipsologies all-things design blog — Link The animation in this video is made up of individually laser-etched business cards, all of which are hand-stamped and numbered. Vavohu is a hebrew word — the latter part of the phrase, “tohu-vavohu” — which appears in the second verse, first chapter of Genesis. Its meaning is a bit obscure, but roughly speaking it means: void. This piece, therefore, is a meditation on the notion of cosmogenesis, my aim being to reflect on the matter as it pertains to science, philosophy, and (specifically) motion design — and not to proselytize any religious views or conceptions. The full intention of this piece is to elicit conversation: about the name, Vavohu, and its meaning, as well as the written portion's significance; both stemming from an introspective and philosophical aspect of myself and my work. Similarly, the unique process and approach to this project is meant to evoke a discussion about my professional work ethic and my interests as a designer. The most exciting thing about this project is the physical exchange that occurs when I hand out the business cards, and while I strongly value the importance of digital interactions, this "off-line" networking tool reflects a changed world in a very unique way. Therefore, the project's overall goal is to create a personal branding experience that will leave a lasting impression. more at www.HelloPatches.com by Adam Glucksman featuring: Sound Design by Carina Hampton Read By Harrison Whittle special thanks: Scott Hess Samantha Sheppard TechShop San Francisco Ex'pression College June 2012

      • Moses Goes Down

        Here is Exodus 3-7, too much to quote here. Featuring the Burning Bush, Moses, Hebrew slaves, strange gods (actually goddesses), Aharon, Pharaoh, a staff turning into a snake, and sing-along phonetic hieroglyphs. The introduction to this scene is "God Calls Moses to Mt. Horeb", here: https://vimeo.com/118255690 Music: Go Down Moses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_Down_Moses Arranged and performed by Louis Armstrong (with Sy Oliver's Orchestra, 1958): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Armstrong Unlike most other Seder-Masochism scenes I've posted, this one isn't primarily parody; the overall message is similar to that of the song. I still argue it's Fair Use, and transformative. Parody isn't the only way to transform (nor is transformation the only criterion for Fair Use). "Go Down Moses" itself was transformative without being parody: it made Exodus into a story of American slavery. Creativity is complicated and shouldn't be dictated by lawyers. LET MY PEOPLE GO!

              • The 9th Plague - ROUGH

                This is a ROUGH. I'm just happy I found the perfect song for the Ninth Plague (Darkness): "Who Turned The Lights Out In My Life" by Daniel Boone, from the early 1970's. There aren't a lot of songs about lice, flies, and locusts (other than Death Metal, which I can't use because the words are indecipherable) but I managed to find one, plus songs for murrain, boils, and the rest. All will be used well out of their original context. Moses is shown way bigger than Pharaoh here because he's about to win. In an earlier scene (which I'm working on right now) Moses is much smaller than Pharaoh, a la planar Egyptian wall art which scales characters according to their power. From Exodus 10: 21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. 22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: 23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. 24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you. 25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God. 26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lord, until we come thither. 27 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go. 28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die. 29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.
