Tracer is the opening track from Symbol’s debut Online Architecture - out 4/8/14 and available on LP (500) / CS (200) / DL (∞) - PHYSICAL: http://ift.tt/14wVE3x - - - - DIGITAL: http://ift.tt/1kyybeZ The video for Online Architecture’s opening meditation Tracer mirrors its aural counterpart in more ways than one. Once again Christopher Royal King (aka Symbol) is found pushing the limits and blurring the lines of analogue and burgeoning technologies to fully realize his beautifully ordered, yet, subtly chaotic aesthetic. Created on an old Tektronix oscilloscope, King achieves ostensibly animate self-organizing wave forms (composed of literal tracers) by fully exploiting the device’s antiquated Rutt Etra video synthesis technology, generating series upon series of ephemeral crystalline light structures that assemble themselves as quickly as they vanish. The video itself is a collage of multiple live-takes of King processing video where all images are generated by the track’s sinewaves, creating completely synced frequency-based-reactions to the opener’s buoyant journey. This performance based approach is much akin to the spontaneous method in which King composed Tracer (live), perpetually welcoming the aid and happy accidents of his assortment of re-contextualized technologies which are allowed to act as both compositional elements and as composers themselves. King’s aptitude for stark yet potent minimalism creates a system of order throughout his video debut that is juxtaposed by an equally conscious effort of meticulously generating a compensatory entropy that stands to sear a lasting image into its viewer’s psychic systems long after its eight minute running time.

an· i· so· tro· py : the property of being directionally dependent, as opposed to isotropy, which implies identical properties in all directions. Anisotropic Formations is a proto-architectural exploration of anisotropic aesthetics and structures through vector based 3d printing. Taking inspiration from 3d printed fashion, composite sail manufacturing and experimental application of 6-axis robotics, the project takes the anisotropic approach as both an aesthetic and a fabrication logic. Anisotropic geometry is vector-based and is directionally dependent. Combinations of these vectors result in rich surface and 3d qualities of varied densities, hierarchies and multi-directional layering. There was an imperative to pursue this design research in a post-digital platform, stepping out from the Euclidean flatness of the computer screen onto the non-Euclidean platform of the physical. Plastic extrusion provided direct access to vector geometry in physical space, enriching it with material agency. Flexibility of the scaffold allowed for multiple configurations and other possibilities. The project was realized through a series of iterations that subjected the design agenda to a series of different machining workspaces and digital-to-physical workflows. From Cartesian workspace of a conventional 3d printer to spherical workspace of multi-axis collaborative robotics and from vector based workflows of 3d modeling to motion based work flows of animation.

the dream - christian haberkern: 

I had a strange dream the other night…actually, when NYC was covered in snow I didn’t just want to sit inside and watch movies all day, I wanted to make one, so I grabbed my 7D and just started shooting. My goal was to create a story out of random pieces of footage and this is what it turned into.

happy campler - the daily drumbeat: Hereby we would like to beat the drum for Happy Camper’s new music video The Daily Drumbeat!

The Daily Drumbeat is a sunny song but it’s lyrics hold a dark threat ‘The drumbeat will beat you up’.
It inspired studio Job, Joris & Marieke to make a dark and sinister animated music video.
The story is set on the rooftops of a big city, where a group of innocent creatures is trying to keep up the pace of a fatal game.

Studio Job, Joris & Marieke previously worked together with Happy Camper on the first music video Born with a Bothered Mind and on the short film MUTE.

They Both Explode: A short hallucinatory tale of consumption, sorrow, redemption and vomit. A peckish heron meets a frog with inviting eyes. They both explode.

Spherical Harmonics is about the strange power of the CGI image. It is a hermetically sealed fantasy, full of digitally created memories, counterfeit physics and controlled accidents. A place where reality fails because it’s too perfect, and where spectacular CGI setpieces are replaced with more introverted and complex fantasies - fantasies of the digital-artist-as-god, lost in uncanny valley.

The film is was created in just six weeks and is currently exhibiting on ‘The Wall’ at The Photographers Gallery in London, an eight-screen HD array with a combined 3K+ resolution and an unusual aspect ratio. Spherical Harmonics sits stylistically at a halfway point between the glossy product displays of Oxford Street and the workhouse construction of Soho’s post production scene. It’s a fantasy under construction. It’s a play between glossy surface and behind-the-scenes complexity. It advertises beauty but undercuts that beauty in a way that suggests it’s unstable or subject to the whims of an invisible authorial force.
