AJ Fosik. Eugenio Merino - How The Main Titles For Pirate Series "Black Sails" Became A Work Of Art. You don’t see any parrots, peg legs, or eye patches in the main titles for Black Sails, the new Starz series from executive producer Michael Bay that depicts the lives of a brutal band of pirates running an island in the Caribbean in 1715.

How The Main Titles For Pirate Series "Black Sails" Became A Work Of Art

Avoiding the many clichés of the genre, much like the show aspires to do, the moody 90-second sequence directed by Karin Fong and Michelle Dougherty via creative studio Imaginary Forces reveals pirate life—in all its bloody glory—through a series of sculptural setups involving Baroque motifs, Gothic architecture, and Rococo style. Fong, who has since left Imaginary Forces and joined Wonderland Sound and Vision as president, credits Imaginary Forces lead designer Alan Williams with coming up with the idea of creating a pirate world out of classic sculpture during a brainstorming session. Water—also computer-generated—is another major element in the titles. Kinetic ‘Insecta’ Lamps by U-Ram Choe. Silver Insecta Lamp, 2013.

Wikipedia Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum.

Kintsugi: The Art of Broken Pieces

The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. The process usually results in something more beautiful than the original. The video above was filmed at Tokyobike in London which recently had a Kintsugi workshop. JAVIER PÉREZ.

Piero Manzoni (July 13, 1933 – February 6, 1963) was an Italian artist best known for his ironic approach to avant-garde art.

Piero Manzoni

Often compared to the work of Yves Klein, his own work anticipated, and directly influenced, the work of a generation of younger Italian artists brought together by the critic Germano Celant in the first Arte Povera exhibition held in Genoa, 1967.[1] Manzoni is most famous for a series of artworks that call into question the nature of the art object, directly prefiguring Conceptual Art.[2][3] His work eschews normal artist's materials, instead using everything from rabbit fur to human excrement in order to "tap mythological sources and to realize authentic and universal values".[2] Biography[edit] Manzoni was born in Soncino, province of Cremona.

His full name was Count Meroni Manzoni di Chiosca e Poggiolo.[5] Self-taught as an artist, Manzoni first exhibited at the Castello Sforzesco in Soncino in August 1956, at the age of 23. Achromes[edit] Gallery Azimuth[edit] ANISH KAPOOR Imagine... Antony Gormley. Rebecca stevenson.
