Revisiting Juan Fontanive's mechanical, looping flipbooks: Vivarium. From the artist’s bio: 

Juan Fontanive makes films without using light. Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ‘animations’. His interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement… Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture - there is no ‘screen’ as such.

We’ve enjoyed Fontanive’s kinetic sculptures before… remember these?

Also in the archives: videos with more birds, more butterflies, more kinetic sculptures, and more flip books, one of our favorite DIY activities. Make your own!

Watch Denver-based Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker build Rise and Skate, a six foot by six foot paper cut light box for skateboard art fundraiser Bordo Bello at the AIGA National Center, New York. On their work, from Black Book

They started experimenting with paper cut shadow boxes in 2010 with hand painted watercolor paper which was then cut and assembled in a wooden box to create a diorama, with years of practice their art became more intricate and minimal at the same time. They started experimenting with lights and simplified their pieces by losing the colored aspect of the paper. They have since then evolved to add their own style of paper cut art incorporating back-lit light boxes using flexible LED strip lights.
