Nike – Air Max Day ‘16 by ManvsMachine

ManvsMachine construct a series of delightful kinetic CG sculptures based on the work of sneaker design superstars Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker to help Nike fans mark Air Max Day 2016.
“We worked closely with Nike Sportswear to conceptualize and execute a huge global campaign culminating in events across the world. We see the unique mechanics of each Nike designer’s mind – Hiroshi: The Editor of Air. Tinker: The Architect of Air. Mark: The Visionary of Air.”

Floraform – growing jewelry by Nervous System

Just outside Boston in Somerville, Massachusetts, Jessica Rosenkrantz, Jesse Louis-Rosenberg and their small team at Nervous System explore the intersection of science, art, and technology – writing code based on processes and patterns found in nature to create art, jewelry, clothes and housewares.

Floraform is inspired by the biomechanics of growing leaves and blooming flowers. Each piece emerges from a computational simulation of differential growth, a surface that grows at different rates in different location. The flowering structures expand fastest along their edges, evolving from simple surfaces to flexuous forms that fill space with curves, folds, and ruffles.

The Fall – Opening Titles by Tarsem Singh

The opening title sequence for Tarsem’s The Fall is the perfect example of a director’s absolute control over his vision. To view it after seeing the film is a gift; a rare and beautiful thing. Surreal, extravagant, and a world singularly Tarsem. What is it to sense things in such a way?
Scored to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 In A Major, Op. 92 (2-Allegretto), the visuals hit their money notes in quick succession. The bridge becomes a stage and the caballus curtain rises as the sequence concludes. It is a dream, and we are Dorothy, remembering the players.

Conan O’Brien Remembers The White Stripes by the Moth team

Designed and animated by the Moth team in London, Conan’s wish to have The White Stripes perform on the final episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien comes true in the most fabulous way.
The film was commissioned by Third Man Books to promote the release of a children’s picture book based on The White Stripes song “We’re Going to be Friends” written by Jack White and illustrated by Elinor Blake (aka musician April March).

Elements by Maxim Zhestkov

Russian visual artist and motion designer Maxim Zhestkov employs dynamics, tension, and various forces of nature to wrangle two billion elements into a pristine 3D gallery of kinetic art installations.
Maxim Zhestkov: “The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements / blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures.
“We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.
