Do you remember when your computer would freeze and you could drag the windows around, creating endless trails behind it? We think you can still do something similar to your mouse pointer somewhere in your settings… JL Design, a Taiwanese design firm, recently produced a colorful series translating human movement into visuals that remind us of that (except way way cooler). Using six motion-sensing cameras to capture the movements, the firm captures the different movements of a father and his daughter, dancers, a romantic couple, and a martial arts expert.
2013 CCTV9 Image Spot & ID (Moment in Time) The channel image for CCTV9 in 2013 is to be perceived as being relevant and relatable. ‘Moment in time’ is the concept that JL DESIGN came up with, focusing on experiences that are intimate and personal, and looking at events from time’s perspective. The stories in the 4 idents are seen to be unfolding in an exhibition space or museum, creating moving sculptures from time trails. The stories of the different characters are further explored in the image spot to show the documentation of self (martial arts expert), parent-child bonding (father and daughter), partnership (dancers) and romantic relationship (couple).
I’m really enjoying the visuals in this series of four idents for CCTV that translate human motion into digitally sculpted objects that look like steel, water, and wood. The clips were created by Taiwan design house JL Design and KORB. If you liked this also check out the photography of Shinichi Maruyama or Choros.
