A Brief Look at Texting and the Internet in Film

Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

Net Blow-up

Zou-na-hanna terrace 21.-25.10.2013 Yokohama, Japan

Net Blow up is a further development of the Net project both in means of construction and appearance. The object is inflated till the outer surface reaches adequate tension for stretching the nets connected on the inner side of the object. This construction excludes any use of additional structure.

The result is a soft object which deforms and mutates with every movement of its temporary habitants. The outer membrane acts both like a “soft box” diffuser of the outside light, or a projection screen in case of inner illumination of the installation. 

Project by Numen

About a week ago, 26-year-old motion designer Dan Marker-Moore shot a gorgeous timelapse of a full moon rising behind Downtown Los Angeles. It was taken on his Olympus OMD-EM5 camera and a 100mm lens. On April 4, he then released the photo above, which he calls “Moon Rise Time Slice.” It’s a stunning collage of 11 still frames taken over 27 minutes and 59 seconds.

Spaxels

Spaxels (a portmanteau word from space pixels) are LED-equipped quadcopters. They make up a drone swarm that can “draw” three-dimensional figures in midair. They create an extraordinary visual experience and open up an unprecedented new dimension of aesthetic expression.
