Get ready to be hypnotized. This new animation from Universal Everything sees a stocky white figure loping before a white background… don’t let the stark beginning fool you though – your eyes will soon be glued to the slow-motion action that unfolds on the screen.
Called Walking City, the design of the character references utopian visions of the 60s; specifically from the avant-garde architectural group called Archigram. In this case, the high-tech architectural cues of that era transform into a moving sculpture – one that evolves into other forms so slowly you’ll almost think you’re imagining it.
“The language of materials and patterns seen in radical architecture transform as the nomadic city walks endlessly, adapting to the environments she encounters.”
This is just the latest installment from the excellent english media art/design studio founded by Matt Pyke. Other influential works have been commissioned by Heineken, Nike, Intel, Deutsche Bank, MTV, Coldplay, The London 2012 Olympics… really we could go on for quite a while. A stop by universaleverything.com will leave you well entertained and inspired.
