Futurist Toys

futurist serene image

A quite dark and disturbing 3d animation from 2005 about a working day of an "anyone" man, living in our era.


The story takes visual inspiration from italian art movement "Futurismo" (Futurism) , and specially from Fortunato Depero Artworks, to play with the positivist concept of "machine" of the beginning of last century, opposed to what machines are becoming now for our lifes.
It was a work made along my thesis in industrial design , in a period while I was worried about my working future..

Santa Snake , Jingle Snake

snork and snake animated

And so this is Christmas , and another year is finishing… That’s why we made a cute and very short animation featuring “Santa Snake” (Or, in Italia, Babbo Serpente).

Firstable cause I admire this elegant and sneaky animal, second, cause in Chinese Horoscope, The Snake is the symbol of 2013.

And also, cause the snake deserved a rehabilitation in Western Culture. Hope you enjoy! And Merry Christmas!! (and happy new year)

FUTURIST LOCOMOTIVE

An Item from futurist toys I really liked : a locomotive. I found this old picture, featuring a model used in Futurist Toys: "The Locomotive" (intended as the pilot of the train), it seems to me almost more interesting, extrapolated from the video and its natural context. Man and Machine, using the same geometry and geometric strength.

SEOUL FILM FESTIVAL official poster

Seoul Film Festival Official Poster

Here there is the poster commissioned by a festival , In Korea.

It was composed creating several 3d models, and combining them together .

I believe it given an innovative image to the festival…

At least, I think so, but it was very funny to make it!

I Also included the first version of the poster.. for sure more “messy”, in terms of graphic design, but much more expressive and close to the complexity of futurist art..

Il tagliaboschi, Fortunato Depero

It was incredible to find this piece on Youtube ...

4 years after I came out with my "Giocattoli Futuristi - Futurist Toys" .

At that time I turned out creating a short movie, taking distance from Futurist ideals, adopting visual futurist elements mostly to show a great contrast between our industrial world and that Futurist world dreamed in the thirties , where machines were seen as our friend...

Giacomo Balla and Fortunato Depero With the Technical Manifesto of Futurist Painting and the preface to the catalogue of the Futurist Exhibition in Paris (signed by Boccioni, Carrà, Russolo, Balla, Severini), with the Manifesto of Futurist Sculpture (signed by Boccioni), the Manifesto of the Painting of Sounds, Noises and Smells (signed by Carrà), with the volume Futurist Painting and Sculpture by Boccioni and Carrà's Warpainting, pictorial Futurism has succeeded in the course of six years in progressing beyond Impressionism and in solidifying it, proposing plastic dynamism and the molding

Periodo Digital - Depero - an older digital animation

Eduardo Pla

Today I was really feeling curious about other futurism inspired 3d Artist.

This video digital Clip, from Eduardo Pla -  seems one of the earliest attempt to transpose the Fortunato Depero Paintings to a Digital 3d environment , and I must say that for the period (1992) is quite impressive, technically speaking. 

At that time, Pixar was coming out with things like this:
