A Supercut Tribute to the Imaginative Films by Director Brad Bird

Los Angeles-based trailer editor Joel Walden of Skip Film has recently created “Brad Bird – The Works,” a splendid supercut video that pays tribute to the imaginative films by director Brad Bird. Walden features clips from The Incredibles (2004), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011), and more.

If I’m ever looking for inspiration, the work of the brilliantly imaginative Brad Bird is what I often turn to. With his latest film, ‘Tomorrowland‘, finally hitting cinemas this weekend, I thought it was due time to pay tribute to the five feature films directed by this immensely talented storyteller.

A Hypnotizing Anthropomorphic Mirror That Reflects Images With Black and Beige PomPoms


PomPom Mirror” by artist Daniel Rozin is a hypnotizing anthropomorphic looking glass of sorts, that amazingly reflects the images presented before it with black and beige “faux fur puffs.”

Rozin’s anthropomorphic “PomPom Mirror” features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made permeable by a ‘push-pull’ forward and backward motion of meshed ‘pixels’. Ghostly traces fade and emerge, as the motorized composition hums in unified movement, seemingly alive and breathing as a body of its own.

PomPom Mirror” is currently being shown at the bitforms gallery in New York City.

Sound Triggers Movement on Clothing in a Projection Mapping Installation

Proforma Video Design created a projection mapping installation in which sounds trigger movement and light onto clothing for Italian luxury leather brand DROMe. The effect is a bit trippy when a model sings a little tune and her dress reacts to each note.

Photos of Miniature Office People Dealing With Hectic, Everyday Work Frustrations

Monday
Monday comes too soon when we worked the whole weekend.

Columbus, Ohio-based brand strategist Derrick Lin has taken a creative collection of photos that visualize miniature office people having to deal with all sorts of hectic, everyday work frustrations. The tiny figurines deal with cases of the Mondays, tight deadlines to make, and more. Lin’s entire series of photos are available to view on Tumblr and Instagram.

With my iPhone, a reading lamp, and miniature figures, I recreate the imaginary scenes of my honest thoughts in work situations right on my work desk. Pairing each photo with corresponding caption, I post them on my Instagram and Tumblr feeds as a way to document my eventful career. Whether it’s burning the midnight oil, early morning client call, or on the road traveling for business, my tiny people are always there making sure I don’t hide my feelings.
