3D animation artist AUJIK has released a new video titled “Spatial Bodies”, in which he transforms a seemingly normal city environment into a living, breathing ecosystem. In the animation, which has been a work in progress for the past 8 years, the building themselves come alive, expanding and growing into a wide variety of fantastical shapes and sizes. The video was created through a mix of CG animation and real life photography, shot with the use of a remote drone. AUJIK is known for his works in CG animation, with works in virtual reality being released as early as 2007. Check out the new work in the video below!

Artist Felice Varini’s work has always taken advantage of perspective and the scenery around him to create optical illusions. His work, which often consists of abstract shapes and geometric constructs, only comes into full view from a certain perspective, forming out of a series of seemingly random lines throughout the environment.

His most recent exhibit, titled “La Villete En Suites”, embodies his unique style of installation painting within the Paul Delouvrier pavilion in Paris, France, and uses the unique structure of the modern architecture to shape his forms. The exhibit opened its doors on April 15th, and takes advantage of shape, color, and even the ceiling of the building in his works.

While his works are better experienced in person, these photos help show off how his work comes together for the viewer as they move around the exhibit. For those wanting to see his work in person, though, the exhibit remains open until September 13th.

Discussion of dangerous news about climate change and global environment issues are at the forefront of the discussion today, and while these topics are fundamentally important to our continued survival on the planet Earth, it is important to not forget to appreciate nature around us and what it gives us on a daily basis. In order to make a real change in these issues, we as a whole must devote much more than this one day to the issues at hand. So make sure to get outside, enjoy yourself, and keep in mind the lessons and topics that are being discussed globally today; we’ll need to keep them in mind if we truly hope to make a difference and make this world a better place for every living being.
