Animated Food

Apologies in advance – this post might make you hungry.

Have you ever noticed that animated food always looks delicious? Studio Ghibli is especially good at it – I craved ramen for weeks after watching Ponyo (see top image) And now that I’ve seen the GIF… there’s an awfully good chance I’ll be having a bowl tomorrow.

For more  check out this new tumblr – dedicated entirely to animated food. (I recommend having food nearby)

Denis Chapon

“During 3 years (2008-2011) i have been drawing 12 drawing of animation every day, it make one second of film. I had no plans what so ever before starting the first drawing. And then, each of the folowing days, I took the 3 last drawing from the day before and kept on animating. I use a none erasable pen, and drew on the back side of used A4 paper.” – Denis Chapon

Amanda McCavour

Amanda McCavour creates these installation pieces using a sewing machine and thread. Because thread is so thin and flat, the final piece looks like a colored pencil drawing that has been taken off the paper.

Artist Statement:

“In my work, I use a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations by sewing into a fabric that dissolves in water. This fabric makes it possible for me to build up the thread by sewing repeatedly into my drawn images so that when the fabric is dissolved, the image can hold together without a base. These thread images appear as though they would be easily unraveled and seemingly on the verge of falling apart, despite the works actual raveled strength.

I am interested in the vulnerability of thread, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together.  I am interested in the connections between process and materials and the way that they relate to images and spaces.  Tracing actions and environments through a process of repetition, translation and dissolving, I hope to trace absence.  My work is a process of making as a way of tracing and preserving things that are gone, or slowly falling apart.”
