David Hockney ‘Joiners’
During the 1980’s, David Hockney began taking photographs from multiple viewpoints then piecing them together. He was interested in how we see and depict space and time and how we turn a 3 dimensional world into a 2 dimensional image.
‘Self portrait’, 1983
‘Nicolas Wilder studying Picasso’, 1982
‘Ice skater’ for the 1984 Olympics
Hey! Check out this video I made where Kylie Minogue plays She-ra!
Big thanks to Ryan Perez for writing it with me, Brian Lane for shooting it, Aaron Moles for doing the awesome visual effects, Andrew Grissom and Betsy Koch for producing and a bunch of other great people for helping out!
So instead of sitting back I started a simple project to actually see it myself. I put a small camera in a box, build a timer circuit using Arduino and shipped it.
That’s as simple as it is. The timer circuit was set to make a 3 sec video every minute and make longer videos while the box was movin: to not miss on the ‘interesting’ parts.
…like conveyor belts! We love videos like this, not only because we get to see from a perspective that we’ve never seen before, but because it would make a great DIY project.
Check out van der Vleuten’s site to see more about the box, its innerworkings, and a highlights video with some real time clips.
