BLOOMS 2: Strobe Animated Sculptures Invented by John Edmark

John describes his sculptures:

Blooms are 3D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture. The bloom’s animation effect is achieved by progressive rotations of the golden ratio, phi (ϕ), the same ratio that nature employs to generate the spiral patterns we see in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotational speed and strobe rate of the bloom are synchronized so that one flash occurs every time the bloom turns 137.5º (the angular version of phi).* Each bloom’s particular form and behavior is determined by a unique parametric seed I call a phi-nome (/fī nōm/).

Sean Capone: Cities and The Sky #2 (Unkai)

Sean describes this work:

Commissioned for a custom video wall in Chicago, this 4K animated loop is inspired by contemporary, abstract visions of landscape, and is a more refined follow-up to the video ‘Cities & The Sky’ (2014). The installation site features a high elevation and panoramic view of the surrounding city and lake, which guided me to the Japanese concept of ‘unkai’, or “sea of clouds”, to explore multiple shifting perspectives and emerging/submerging points of detail and architectural elements … as an act of meditative looking, the uncanny scale of one’s field of vision becomes temporal as well as physical.
