As you can see since some monthsweeks days the new version of this site is now online.
The late english blog is now in homepage while the italian one in /italiano (yeah, a mess.), I updated the page with useful infos in case you would pretend to be me at a party and I added a page with the last fruits of my labour.
About graphics, except for the posts that alternate for the title and the link the 6 colors of this version as already see in the Whitezone (whereof is the negative) I postponed the choose of a new font that will replace the old Dirty Ego by the grand master Eduardo Recife used since the second version dated back to 2005. Who imaged that in a few years it will transformed in a Dirty Egoverrated?
Latest changes is something that match uselessness and approximation: a blackboard made in flash (not yet finished!) which to color the part of the layout leave empty for the shift on the left.
To give meaning to this post, the Daft Punk played with a theremin:
Yesterday I was searching in YouTube for a tutorial that could help me to fight the breath of cod I eated three days ago, and after two hours guided by serendipity I happened by chance in a nice music video where a band was playing inside a children book, the ones with the pages made of paperboard full of levels which is possible to move some print figures.
This morning as usual I forgot the name of the group and the song and YouTube refuse to support me, so I found only a group of videos where print (or not) design techniques or styles like collage, stencils, wicked worn look where used for the background -or main – animation.
I ask to my music guru Tulsas if he remember some related video, and in a couple of hours we found these ones:
Best frames (for me): from 2:45 to 2:50 Year: 2004 Director: ?
Living Things – Bom Bom Bom
Watercolor painting, stencils and seventies’ look for the Saint Louis rock band (where are now? one-hit wonder in the air?). The reciped: starts with a zebra, steal it the stripes, add all the rainbow colors and aged whole works. (better resolution here)
Best frames: from 2:00 to 2:07 Year: 2006 Director: Floria Sigismondi
Elisa – Together
The images of Italian (Trieste) songwriter Elisa are principally inserted in a 3D scene, but accompanied by many static images (for ex: soldiers 1:40; camera men 3:25; engine 3:43; and last seconds) inserted as photographic collage. (Pretty girl. I’d like to be the rung at 3:11.)
Best frames: from 1:26 to 1:47 Year: 2005 Director: Andrew Bennett e Mark Yamamoto
Gnarls Barkley – Crazy
(At the moment I can’t find an embeddable video, so here’s the link). How to insert the faces of the Baltimora’s duo in Rorschach inkblots in motion? With green and violet stencils (so single layered images) in motion.
Best frames: from 1:07 to 1:25 Year: 2006 Director: Robert Hales
Royksopp – Remind Me
In Tromsø (Norway) there’s another electronic duo that like the “visual representations of information, data or knowledge”, or infographic. Everything in life can be explained with a isometric projection and a graph, your granny didn’t tell this when you were child?
Best frames: from 0:37 to 0:48 Year: 2002 Director: Ludovic Houplain and Herve de Crecy
Royksopp – Eple
Royksopp again shows a journey into an amazing! set of photoes from 70s’/80s’ winter holidays one over the other; zooming out an image this become the particular of the next one.
Best frames: all. Year: 2001 Director: Mother and Toxic
Mark Ronson: Just
Mark Ronson knows that London is full of graffiti there are ready to move when you are distract. (looking at the fuseaux of that blonde nu-raver)
Best frames: from 2:23 to 2:38 Year: 2005 Director: Nick Frew
Best frames: from 2:23 to 2:38 Year: 1999 Director: Antoine Bardou-Jacquet
Vinicio Capossela – Marajà
Absolutely my favourite – and I think best italian music video of all time: for folk musician Vinicio Capossela hundred and hundred of retro images -mainly in sepia tone, but sometimes coloured with red or yellow or green – dancing, from left to right or viceversa like in a theater (present in the incipit) or a circus, in a colossal photographic collage.
Best frames: from 3:08 to 3:11 Year: 2001 Director: Ago Panini
By a rapid calculation I did before sleep, i found that colours visualizzabili displayed by a browser are 16,777,216.
Why don’t to associate a tag to a color – or better to a color scheme?
While I wake up in a burst overriding a thumbsnack on the floor, I remember the existence of Clor.org, a site a site that allow you to catalogue colours inserting his hexadecimal code, or extrapolating them from whichever image. (here the how to) |inline
