Animation monday : Azúl

A dream-like journey. The story of someone out of place in his own way, lost in a stranger land he is passionate of in his own way.

I love the poesy of it. The unusual imagery it convoke. The certainly huge amount of work for visual documentation behind it.

The Underwater Invasion

conquering the volcano

It began with the sudden appearance of strange geological formations.

magic mushroom

The authorities quickly sent a team of scientists to investigate …

toxic eggs

… which soon discovered that the formation was organic in nature and spreading at an alarming speed !

hermit crab attack !

The situation spiralled out of control, creating panic among the population !

bobbit worm

Armed forces were used to try to resist the ongoing invasion .. but in vain !

sewer workers

Not a single hole in the ground could be considered safe.

 train inspectors

Fortunately, with a bit of dialogue, the underwater creatures managed to reach an agreement and earn enough trust to be able to live peacefully together with the little people invaders.

Jason Isley is a photographer specialized in wild life and especially the oceanic fauna. Inexplicably, he grew tired of classic shots and came up with a nice twist by creating little dioramas using train miniatures (the like of Slinkashu) and the complicity of the sea creatures. I love it !

Little wooly Icelandic landscapes

Wooly Sagas“, is a wonderful tribute to the subtly strange beauty of the Icelandic landscapes, handmade by Eszter Burghardt, who’s clearly in love with this country.
The tampering with forced perspective and depth of field is admirable.
The choice of scale and medium gives to the work an inward and sentimental feel : A plush geology.A volcanic diorama made of wool and imagination.

What is both the single biggest and oldest organism on earth ?

The velella, a small free floating hydrozoan

Recent discoveries show that there are whales alive today that were born before the writing of Moby Dick, 200 years from now and which have old stone harpoons still lodged in their skin.

But they are nothing next to the organism known as “Pando”.
Pando is over 80 000 years old.
Pando is the heavier living being on earth.
TREMBLE BEFORE PANDO !
