Jupiter’s Irregular Satellites

The planet Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons. This gives it the largest retinue of moons with “reasonably secure” orbits of any planet in the Solar System. In fact, Jupiter and its moons are like a miniature solar system with the inner moons orbiting faster than the others. Eight of Jupiter’s moons are regular satellites, with prograde and nearly circular orbits that are not greatly inclined with respect to Jupiter’s equatorial plane. The remainder of Jupiter’s moons are irregular satellites, whose prograde and retrograde orbits are much farther from Jupiter and have high inclinations and eccentricities. These moons were probably captured by Jupiter from solar orbits. There are 17 recently discovered irregular satellites that have not yet been named.

FACETS :: INTERACTIVE from Fred TRETOUT on Vimeo.

L’application FACETS est inspirée du logiciel open source ‘Alchemy’ initié par Adrew Jones.
L’objectif est de trouver une nouvelle méthode de création par le dessin. A l’instar des Surréalistes cherchant à libérer l’inconscient dans leur création, ici l’utilisateur se doit de commencer par un geste aléatoire pour découvrir le pattern du tableau.

The world of storytelling opens up wide, when you can make nearly anything you can imagine.

3D, CG, VFX… By any name, it’s more than a “capability” at DK, it’s a point of view. When you combine world-class artistry with cutting-edge technology, you have the power to tell wildly imaginative stories that surprise and inspire.

In addition to pixel art and frame by frame animation, graphics in this video are based on various influences. The main ones arise from the underground manga, especially Maruo Suehiro’s “ero-guro” or erotic-grotesque style (to name one), that mixes both horror and erotic genres. Human passions such as love and violence become exacerbated to their climax, making the man look like a crazy and decadent animal, the whole thing taking the form of a macabre poetry.

Adolescence, embodied by the mutation into a monstrous beast, is a tribute to B-movies, drawing references from John Carpenter’s or illustrator Charles Burns’ universes. Symbolism in the transition into adulthood is seen as a rite of passage, requiring the death of a human being and the birth of another. The hauting mystical song immerses us inexorably into the intricacies of this transformation you can’t avoid, whatever you do.

———————

Outre le pixel art et l’animation image par image, l’univers graphique de la vidéo est basé sur diverses influences. Les principales sont issues du manga underground, et plus particulièrement du genre “ero-guro” ou érotique-grotesque de Suehiro Maruo (pour n’en citer qu’un) qui mêle horreur et érotisme. Les passions humaines telles que l’amour et la violence se voient exacerbées jusqu’à leur paroxysme, montrant l’homme comme un animal fou et décadent le tout sous la forme d’une poésie macabre.

L’adolescence représentée par la mutation en un être monstrueux rend ici hommage aux films de série B, notamment en s’inspirant de références issues de l’univers de John Carpenter ou de l’illustrateur Charles Burns. La symbolique du passage à l’âge adulte est vécue comme un rite initiatique, nécessitant la mort d’un être et la naissance d’un autre. La chanson, à la fois lancinante et mystique, nous plonge inexorablement dans les méandres de cette transformation qui sera quoi que l’on fasse, inévitable.

Hair Highway from Studio Swine on Vimeo.

What if you could use human hair as an alternative to diminishing natural materials? Studio Swine travel along the Hair Highway to explore the hair trade and its potential as a future resource.
studioswine.com

Hair Highway is a contemporary take on the ancient Silk Road which transported not only silk but also technologies, aesthetics and ideas between East and West. Investigating the global hair industry in the Shandong province of China, Studio Swine followed the journey of the material from the people who sell their hair through to the hair merchants, markets and factories. The project documents this journey in a film and a collection of highly decorative objects.

China is both the largest importer of tropical hardwood and the biggest exporter of human hair. By combining hair with a natural resin, Studio Swine has created a composite material that provides a sustainable alternative to the planet’s diminishing natural resources with an aesthetic that evokes the palettes of tortoiseshell and a grain resembling that of polished horn or exotic hardwoods. The result is a unique collection of exquisite objects inspired by the 1930’s Shanghai-deco style.

As the world’s population rises, human hair is one natural resource that is increasing. Asian hair regenerates the fastest, growing 16 times more rapidly than tropical hardwoods; it is also incredibly strong - a single strand can take up to 100 grams. Hair Highway reflects on China’s relationship with the rest of the world, while exploring the idea that trade has the ability to not only transport products but also values and perceptions.
