Lightexture (what a cool name!) is a collaboration between 3 creatives: an architect, a lighting designer and a ceramic artist.
It makes for beautifully textures light fixtures (in clay or in metals), all with particular attention to how the light travels once lit, to create unique ambiances and patterns on the wall. Just lovely!
I don’t watch many videos. Even on Youtube, I’ll just put a song on and do something else while it plays instead of looking at the moving images.
But sometimes this weekend I don’t know why, but I decided to go explore a little bit on Vimeo. Turns out I found a couple of precious animated jems! And so I decided to show y’all, around the handmade theme, cause well, handmade is awesome. ‘Nuff said.
Once in a while, an object made to be used can also, in itself, look just like art. It’s certainly the case for Leica’s M9-P “Édition Hermès”, a collaboration between the company and Jean-Louis Dumas, the former late president of Hermès. Not only is it just gorgeous, it’s also a lesson in craftsmanship!
Also, this video is just stunningly perfect. While showing how this special limited edition camera is made, it’s a gem in itself. Handmade insights, precise sounds, material textures, lighting…! This video gives me the chills!
Turns out Matt and Julie made plenty of other great little motion pieces (some including stop motion) for everyone to look at on their Vimeo! Various subjects are treated, all visual gems, if you ask me! :)
Go snoop around their blog (you’ll also find awesome photography there!), you wont regret it!!
Since I’m on the subject of videos (a subject I don’t visit often, huh?), my friend Christine Chevarie is working on a little video on my work right about now!
She came to film last Friday (above, featuring my oh-so-chill cat, Kobe), and I CAN’T WAIT to see the results! Her boyfriend and herself even created a little tune, sort of in the Angus and Julia Stone style, for it! Just so awesome! I’ll let you know here of course when it’s ready!
Meanwhile, check out this little video (it’s in French, but worth it even if you don’t understand!) she made on canning tomatoes (below). Half of these people are my friends, and the little guy, Hubert, is the child of my oldest friend Emilie, and he apparently loves me. He offers me his firefighter trucks (his favorites) every time I see him. If that isn’t love, I dunno what is. Yep. hehe :)
