FashGif: The Tumblr Phenomenon

FashGif: The Tumblr Phenomenon | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Melbourne-based Greta Larkins, who has animated stills for the likes of Kenzo, Vogue Hommes Japan and Nicola Formichetti, gained a cult following with her tongue-in-cheek take on runway imagery. Last year saw “GIF” named the Oxford Dictionaries USA word of the year, as the ever-booming format became the subject of social media platforms Paddle8 and Tumblr’s Moving the Still exhibition. “I love the comments people leave when they re-post the GIFs,” says Larkins, whose satirical eye has brought Giambattista Valli sheepskin bag to life and a Marc Jacobs sweater dispense endless cans of cola.“One of my favorites to date was along the lines of, 'I don't usually like fashion but this is awesome.'”

Artist's self portrait is a robot destined to draw forever

Artist's self portrait is a robot destined to draw forever | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Robo Faber is an autonomous drawing robot that's programmed to sketch random artworks. Created by LA-based Matthias Dörfelt, the tiny Arduino robot is designed to echo the artist's current creative aesthetic. It's an unconventional take on the self portrait: the concept is that Faber will be an offshoot of the artist's creative thinking that remains frozen in time, replicating his current style long after he has moved onto different things.

Watch: Awesome Animated Mash-Up Combines Work From 60 Artists - Wired

Watch: Awesome Animated Mash-Up Combines Work From 60 Artists - Wired | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

One of the coolest things about animation is letting an artist take you into an entirely new world of their own design. Ren and Stimpy, Cinderella, and Archer all occupy their own singular universe. The Doodle Project, a unique collaboration of over 75 artists from all around the world, is just the opposite. It packs dozens of unique styles and idiosyncratic characters into one schizophrenic 5-minute clip.

Understand Music

Music is a good thing. But what we did not know until we started with the research for this piece: Music is also a pretty damn complex thing. This experimental animation is about the attempt to understand all the parts and bits of it. Have a look. You might agree with our conclusion!
