There are certain of these sculptures (because that's really what they are--kinetic sculptures where the impetus for movement has refined the need for any physical manifestation right out of the work) that seem to intimate what it must be like to be mentally unbalanced.

Also: this, which is a kind of parable seeking a subject.

Really really really wish we had inline images again. (Great find.)

Long time fan of davidope; suprised he's never been here before.

I wanted to like the hexagons more than I was, but they didn't resolve properly. They kept jumping up and down big steps, so I was watching them and they suddenly turned into cubes, and I was like, ong, what just happened, have these things been turning into cubes all along and I just never noticed, or what, no wait these are hexagons. Now I know that a hexagon looks like a cube if you stare at it long enough and I am going to finish my coffee, because, you know, work.

Lovely find. Thank you griphus.

Not sure but some of these might need a seizure warning?
posted by elizardbits at 9:00 AM on August 1, 2012


You're probably right. Which is funny because this exchange happened the last time I posted an animated GIF tumblr. Informing mods.
posted by griphus at 9:04 AM on August 1, 2012


Done.

These are wonderful- beautiful and very clever. I'd love to know how he builds them, especially the stripy ones.

re:seizures, he puts up an epilepsy warning on his video so yeah, warranted I think.

I just hope he doesn't accidentally produce a basilisk...

dvdp was a secondary link on this post last September. Not that I want to take credit for discovering it, BUT I DO.
posted by oneswellfoop at 10:13 AM on August 1, 2012


Nooooo...

I screwed up the tags when I posted this initially and never checked the corrected ones.
posted by griphus at 10:14 AM on August 1, 2012


I tried but god no. Can't.

They're good. But are they BuzzFeed good?

yeah he's pretty great. I've been following him for ages.

If you liked dvdp then you will also like mr. div!

I like this one.

OmieWise: "I like this one."

I already said it's our new God, Omie. Please report to the nearest Pulsatron for re-training.

Yes. I will.

That is good. Pulse be with you.

Yep, I hit this following juv3nal cuz he puts them up places I look occasionally. I love it because it makes me want to wear clown shoes and walk with a big, long, slouching stride into my computer screen.
posted by carsonb at 12:33 PM on August 1, 2012


Seconding mr.div. A little more complexity, plus lens flare. Well, he can be forgiven for that.

Tumblrs with good content must be supported! They are our only hope!
posted by oneswellfoop at 2:26 PM on August 1, 2012


Plus some of the other stuff he posts is also fabulous. Who knew?
