Pixelated world: scenes shapeshift in and out of focus on a trippy autumn stroll
The Russian graphic illustrator and motion designer Vladimir Tomin is known for his web videos that deploy relatively simple video-editing tools to reality-warping effect. In his short Portals, views from a leafy autumn walk slowly break apart and shift back into focus, each time revealing a new scene. Although presented without any context besides Tomin’s words ‘Autumn is strange and beautiful, definitely in my top four of favourite seasons,’ the title and images perhaps suggest a reality unfixed from human time, and underpinned by pixels rather than particles. For more mind-bending work from Tomin, watch Outside and Sketches.
