Amon Tobin – ISAM ‘Live Visual Experience’

Re-drawing and blurring the lines between psychedelia and sci-fi, between art and entertainment, between sound design and melody, Brazilian electronic musician Amon Tobin released his latest creation ISAM on 23rd May via the independent London-based record label Ninja Tune. The tour that ensues plays host to some incredible set/stage design. The work that has gone into the live shows is testament to Tobin’s passion and vision. Click here to get a feel for “a beautiful combination of physical geometric stage models and interactive video projections”. Tobin and his team get a big thumbs up from Lucid.

The Third & The Seventh

We just can’t get enough of Vimeo here at Lucid you can loose hours on it, it never gets boring and to top it off they have just launched their iPhone app, which means even more viewing pleasure. This piece of film is astonishingly beautiful, the intro is a work of art in itself and what follows after is even more amazing.

This truly is beautiful in every way….. Breathtaking in fact. It makes mankind’s relationship with nature seem truly seamless.

Alex Roman we salute you.

As it says in the Vimeo description ‘Full screen it please’ you will not be disappointed.

Sticks and Stones May Break My bones….

Black Swan

As most will know by now, Black Swan is the box office hit film of the year, along with the great ‘The Kings Speech‘ and a whole host of other films that have been released in time for awards season. Starring Natalie Portman the film is a dark journey through the career of a dancer and her struggles.

However good those films might be though, that’s not really what this post is about. Rather it is about the artwork that features everywhere and anywhere right now to promote the film. Which includes the window of Collete in Paris where we could be found this evening “papping” Karl Largafeld who was out buying something in the store.

Anyway again back to the artwork for the film. It’s fantastic and a refreshing change from the typical Hollywood film poster of Actor and film name. We even picked up an uncoated, textured black envelope the other day in FACT in Liverpool City Centre, which was filled with the postcards of the artwork… Bonus. We want to see more of this kind of artwork and production in terms of graphic design featuring in the promotion of hit films. Not only is it nice to get hold of, but its great for the industry too.
