Charlie Bucket: Fluid Dress

Two years ago, Vimeo user Charlie Bucket uploaded his tubed sculpture and skirt containing coloured fluid that flows through the structure.

He has now moved on to his most ambitious project: a fluid dress, which demonstrates a greater control of liquid movement, activated by a pump hidden in the backpack.

Aardman: ‘Dot’

From Aardman.com:

Aardman Animations have set a Guinness World Record for “Smallest stop-motion animation character in a film”, with their new short film: ‘Dot’.

Shot entirely on the new Nokia N8, the ‘Dot’ film showcases the smartphone’s 12-megapixel photography capabilities and also celebrates the CellScope, an invention created by Professor Daniel Fletcher. The CellScope is a microscopic device attached to a Nokia handset, which the Professor used to produce life-saving technology: with his invention he has helped diagnose fatal diseases in remote areas of third world countries.

As part of the upcoming campaign to bring these types of amazing, authentic uses of technology to life, Nokia’s agency W+K briefed Aardman to create a microscopic animation. The brief immediately inspired one of Aardman’s youngest creative teams, Sumo Science directors Will Studd and Ed Patterson.

‘365’ is a clock that knits a scarf. It takes a whole day to knit a complete circuit, and knits a two-metre scarf every year.

As shown as part of the DMY International Design Festival in Berlin.
