Dune

This is my attempt to envision what could screen graphics look like for the new movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s “Dune”, if this would happen. 

I have created seven scenes which themes are bond together and all the visuals are merging together into one story, smoothly transitioning one into another: unveiling the planet, discovering its dangers and nature, showcasing its location in the universe, establishing connection with your friendly forces, setting a tone for it, and then completing your mission.

Because computers are forbidden in the world of Dune, I’ve approached this project from the perspective of creating something more of a screen title nature, rather than traditional diegetic UI. White appearance helps to eliminate the holographic look, and overall aesthetics of this piece is close to e-ink technology, to emphasize the literary foundation of the product.​​​​​​​ (more…)

BLOOMS 2: Strobe Animated Sculptures Invented 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 (more…)
