Using video work and other technology, Maarten Baas creates clocks that appear to be inhabited by men who appear to be manually keeping time, each actually a 12-hour recorded performance being displayed. He’s created these in varying scales, from human-sized grandfather clocks to the major project Schiphol clock, located international terminal of an Amsterdam airport.
From studio visits to behind-the-scenes peeks at exhibitions and installations, the Hi-Fructose Magazine YouTube channel offers a different way to see the art that appears in the print publication and on our blog. Below, we’ve included some of the highlights from the channel.
Chilean photographer and visual artist Jon Jacobsen works within the tension of the real and the fabricated in his digitally manipulated works. The artist has recently explored this with make-up artist Alex Box, dancer Jonathon Luke Baker, and director Nick Knight in a film created during his SHOWstudio residency. Their “Die Verwandlung” film “encompasses a fashion film, editorial and process imagery exploring metamorphosis and motion, informed by Jacobsen’s interest in the dichotomy between digital and organic states.”
More and More, a London-based design studio, strives to create 3D imagery and video that has both a “distinctive and unexpected tone of voice.” Launched just last year by Carl Burgess and Tom Darracott, the studio breathes life and realistic motion into inflatable characters, delicate fur, and other uncommon material. The group even mesmerizes with a golden ribbon, piling onto itself.
