Planemah

In a dark world of greed a king chases the secrets of universe and existence.

Planemah is a trippy allegory about desire, ruthlessness and the complete loss of control.

Animation & Concepts: Daniel Frank, Thomas Chambers, Jenn Doty, Jessica Heitzenrater, Heather Miller, Samantha Pickett, Scott Schaaf, Jessica Wallace & Cydney Wiedenbeck.

Blooms: Strobe Animated Sculptures by John Edmark

Blooms are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light.

Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture. The bloom’s animation effect is achieved by progressive rotations of the golden ratio, phi (ϕ), the same ratio that nature employs to generate the spiral patterns we see in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotational speed and strobe rate of the bloom are synchronized so that one flash occurs every time the bloom turns 137.5º (the angular version of phi).* Each bloom’s particular form and behavior is determined by a unique parametric seed I call a phi-nome (/fī nōm/). -John Edmark

John Edmark is an artist, designer, and inventor. He teaches at Stanford University.
