Not Still Life

More 3D scan imagery I wanted to still play with, and then put to rest.

sod-off-1

I imported an .stl file into Blender and then wrapped a texture of itself around itself. A kind of double self portrait of itself, an object/thing.

sod-off-3

Then I animated it to rotate, then imported it into Final Cut Pro X, and added some sound I had earlier put through a Kaoss pad. Basic, but going in the direction/aesthetic I want to take everything.

sod-off-4

This is a continuation of my interest in the textures that make up the 3D object. I find some of the .obj and .stl files quite beautiful.

Note to Self:

  • This is I suppose is an exercise in Autumnal cleaning (if there is such a thing) and tying up loose ends from last year. Some of these scans were meant to be 3D printed for the interim show but there were too many errors in the files. Would have been nice to have had a physical manifestation of some of the 3D objects in the video, but had to settle for a print instead.
  • Conceptually it may not seem as if there is much going on here, but everything I am doing now is leaning towards OOO.
  • Organic source material. i.e. scan of a sod of clay gives way to a digital version.

Aspera in Bestia

I nipped over to London last Monday to put up my Interim video piece ‘Slouching towards Bethlehem’ at Wilson Road, Camberwell.

Slouching towards Bethlehem

“And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”

bestia-3

The piece is a continuation of my exploration into 3D orbits, spherical environments + investigation into unfurled textures and the essence of objects.

bestia-2

The ‘Beastie’ as object is dictated to by an authoritarian computer voice.

The looped piece of electronic music is taken from a track called ‘Time’ from the album ‘Ghettoville’ by my favourite ‘Afro-futurist’ musician Actress.

“Oh, you are such an ugly beastie..”

the ‘Beastie’ unfurls the textures that constitute the 3D object, revealing the essence of the virtual object and in turn itself. Still there in its spherical world, going round and round and round, ad infinitum…

Slouching towards Bethlehem

3D orbits + investigation into unfurled textures.

slouch-beth-4

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world”

slouch-beth-2

slouch-beth-3

unfurl-beastie-1

“When a vast image out of Spritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in the sands of the desert.”

slouch-beth-7

“And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”

Note to Self:

  • The messy feel of this ‘beastie’ is how I want it, as if it has just emerged from some primordial ooze.

Neun Arme

Some 3D grabs + orbits. Unfurled 3D texture detail also.

neunArme-1

neunArme-5

Actually I had nine arms, dried out in sunlight.
Legs used to be like tentacles extinct in daylight.

neunArme-3

neunArme-7

neunArme-6

unfurl-1

Eigentlich hatte ich neun Arme vertrocknet im Sonnenlicht
Eigentlich war’n Beine wie Tentakeln verkuemmert im Tageslicht.

neunArme-2

neunArme-4

unfurl-2

I want my pincers back.

neunArme-9

neunArme-8

Note to Self:

  • The texture of the terrain works well I think.
  • Explore .stl and .obj files in Blender, and cell fracture.
