la cuarta dimensión: time lapse más allá de la tercera dimensión



Hay tiempos rápidos y tiempos lentos. Hay movimientos aparentemente estáticos y formas de arte que congelan el tiempo. La cronofotografía refracciona el tiempo y el movimiento para llevarnos a nuevas escalas de la cuarta dimensión.
Las plantas no están inmóviles. Las esponjas y los corales no son plantas.
Hay seres realmente longevos y animales desaparecidos en tiempos pasados revividos en el tiempo por los espejismos en movimiento del cine y la tecnología audiovisual digital. Podéis incluso ser testigos de las primeras muestras de animales animados en stop motion con impresoras 3D

Created by University of Queensland PhD student Daniel Stoupin, this remarkable macro video of coral reefs, sponges and other underwater wildlife, brings a fragile and rarely-seen world into vivid focus. Stoupin shot some 150,000 photographs which he edited down to create the final clip. He shares about the endeavor:
Time lapse cinematography reveals a whole different world full of hypnotic motion and my idea was to make coral reef life more spectacular and thus closer to our awareness. I had a bigger picture in my mind for my clip. But after many months of processing hundreds of thousands of photos and trying to capture various elements of coral and sponge behavior I realized that I have to take it one step at a time. For now, the clip just focuses on beauty of microscopic reef “landscapes.” The close-up patterns and colors of this type of fauna hardly resemble anything from the terrestrial environments. Corals become even less familiar if you consider their daily “activities.”
Stoupin discusses Slow Life as well as the threats to the Great Barrier Reef that inspired him to make the video in a detailed entry over on his blog. (via Kottke)



Bears on Stairs: A Stop Motion-Animation Created from 3D-Printed Frames

The creative team over at London-based DBLG recently released this in-house animation titled Bears on Stairsthat involed old school stop motion techniques paired with modern 3D printing. The painstaking process involved printing a sequence of 50 tiny sculptures which had to be photographed one by one over a period of 4 weeks—all for a mere two seconds of animation. I love the texture on the surface created by the printer. See more over at DBLG. (via Visual News)
