Legno caleidoscopico 18.06.172017-06-17:55:33
WoodSwimmer è l'ipnotico cortometraggio in time lapse di Brett Foxwell di un caleidoscopico viaggio tra venature, nodi e anelli di accrescimento del legno ottenuto con il meticoloso uso di una fresatrice e pazientemente fotografato.
Fascinated with the shapes and textures found in both newly-cut and long-dead pieces of wood, I envisioned a world composed entirely of these forms. As I began to engage with the material, I conceived a method using a milling machine and an animation camera setup to scan through a wood sample photographically and capture its entire structure. Although a difficult and tedious technique to refine, it yielded gorgeous imagery at once abstract and very real. Between the twisting growth rings, swirling rays, knot holes, termites and rot, I found there is a lot going on inside of wood.
