Paramour: A One-Shot Music Video Filmed From the Perspective of a Toy Train

   15 Aug 01:00:02  |  ThisIsColossal

In Ewan Jones Morris?s music video for Scottish composer and producer Anna Meredith?s music video Paramour, a toy train speeds around a series of prop-filled rooms. The train cannot be seen, because it serves as a miniature dolly for the camera strapped on top. As the camera moves around the set, musicians jump in and out of frame, entering just as they produce a dramatic cymbal crash or play a particular note on the saxophone. More

   15 Aug 01:00:02  |  ThisIsColossal

Embroidery artist Sol Kesseler captures male subjects in moments of quiet contemplation using a combination of delicate facial features and bold geometric fabric patterns. The Buenos Aires-based artist travels widely to teach workshops on her embroidery technique.

When exhibiting her work, Kesseler sometimes incorporates technology into the viewer experience, which you can read more about in curator Alana J. More

Put Words into Action with ?Gerry?, a New Font Created From the Silhouettes of Gerrymandered Electoral Districts

   14 Aug 01:00:01  |  ThisIsColossal

Apologies to anyone who shares the name, but two designers in Chicago are taking on electoral gerrymandering in a new font called Gerry. The font, created by Ben Doessel and James Lee, is composed of 26 districts whose absurd boundaries resemble alphabet letters much more than they resemble logical, cohesive population groupings. Alabama’s pronged 1st District bears a striking resemblance to the letter K, while New York’s 8th District looks like an M with its tall legs connected by a curved middle. More

   14 Aug 01:00:01  |  ThisIsColossal

Tel Aviv-based illustrator Shira Barzilay creates expressive line drawings on top of editorial style portraits to provide a more exaggerated expression for the subject, or produce an entirely new face on the back of their head. The digital illustrations are created via iPad, and range from simple lines to filled in multi-color shapes that give the pieces an almost cubist appearance. You can see more of her photographic illustrations, in addition to recent clothing and handbag collaborations, on her Instagram. More

Los Angeles-based photographer Dan Marker-Moore (previously) flew south to document the solar eclipse that occurred in Chile on July 2, 2019. While many professional photographers also documented the event, most images capture the singular moment in one image, Marker-Moore decided to break out the progression in orderly chart-like designs. He shares with Colossal that he experimented with over one hundred different format variants before deciding on the final five. Each image contains between 26 and 425 photos of the sun. More

Images of Nyabinghi warriors, Haile Selassie, African nature scenes, and slavery are strung together bead by bead to form decorative costumes that weigh up to 150 pounds and are worn from 9am to 6pm on Mardi Gras. More

Conductive Origami by Yael Akirav Unites 3-D Printing and Textiles to Create Foldable Modern Light Fixtures

   12 Aug 01:00:01  |  ThisIsColossal

Israeli industrial designer Yael Akirav 3-D prints conductive material onto textiles to create illuminated works of origami. The lighting fixtures can collapse or expand due to their pliable surfaces, allowing them to be displayed either open and lit or folded into a closed position. This expansive movement stretches the conductive filament and also works almost like a dimmer. A slow pull turns the light on gradually, and then turns it off as it is compressed back into its original position. More
