For the final post of the week, I give you the ultimate paper sculptress, Kelli Anderson. In the past few years, Kelli has become obsessed with exploring what paper can do. In her paper animation, "Where Records Come From," she re-enacted the process of recording “High Water Everywhere, Part 1” at Paramount Records in 1930 in paper stop-motion.

Similar to Vincent Tomczyk’s paper sculptures from yesterday's post, but all about the formalism, is Thomas Demand’s stop-motion paper sculpture film “Pacific Sun," which I saw at LACMA a couple weeks ago and was blown away. 

It was made using security footage from the interior of a cruise ship during a storm. You can watch the video here (video from his show at the Matthew Marks Gallery).

I’m usually able to look at a video and take an educated guess on how something was made, but "Horde" by the Brutus Collective eluded me. The film features masterful cel and 3D animation, in addition to an eerie stop-motion-like varnish that coats the each scene.

Swedish creative shop Kokokaka first caught my eye several years ago with their super smart and beautifully executed work for Wrangler which you can still check out here

Who knew you could build an interactive experience in which you actually interact with the product? Since then, Kokokaka has continued to push out great work for Ikea, Volvo, Louis Vuitton, and a handful of design-centric brands. Beyond just clever interactive pieces, all their work harmonizes the use of color, type, and of course photography and video styling.

Clock Clock by Humans Since 1982 for Victor Hunt

The clock clock white by humans since 1982 from Humans since 1982 on Vimeo.

Humans Since 1982 and Victor Hunt killed it on this one. You really have to see Clock Clock in person to fully understand and appreciate how mesmerizing it is. I love that it's driven by relatively advanced technology, but it's experienced in a very direct way through a well-designed, physical object. 

This is at the top of my list of works that I would love to have in my house, but unfortunately won't be able to afford anytime soon.
