I wanted to make an architecture rendering of one of these very generic places. sort of a retirement home for art works. And then I could not help myself dramatizing it a little. As I see it a kind probing the space, digitalt testing and taking samples of the place

Stop Motion Star Flight

I really simpl experiments to see if it could be possible to make a sci-fi Star flight scene using just pieces of paper in different sizes. I think it’s exciting to work in this field of illusion that is made so simple or clumsy that they just barely work as illusion but  has a clear link to how […]

Josef Hartwig chess set

Josef Hartwig chess set 1924, here 3d modeled and animated. I wanted the individual elements to interact in a different way. I thought the design of chess pieces invited to a kind of spatial games rather than a tradional flat one.

Rodchenko spatial test

Preceding animations to the work: ”Line meshing” 2012 http://jesper-carlsen.com/on/2012/01/line-meshing-2012/ and “Inside Tile Corner” 2012 http://jesper-carlsen.com/on/2012/01/inside-tile-corner-3x3x3-2012/ I actually still really like the visuals in these tests, so maybe they come to form the basis for several more projects. the sound bite for this test is from: http://www.moma.org/collection/details.php?theme_id=10955&section_id=T019195 SOURCE: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS , Constructivism

Flipping pages in 2007

A 3d animation test I made in 2007. I still think it is a fine little dry animation and its in a way the predecessor of the project: “100 sider” from 2010 http://jesper-carlsen.com/on/2010/11/100-sider-2010/

  • This blog is a place for projects that do not fit on the main site jesper-carlsen.com because it is considered as an archive for completed artworks. It is experiments that has been abandoned or not yet found their final form. I think these experiments still bear some relevance as glimpse of the underlying practice. On a personal level it feels good to have a place for these projects and perhaps even set them free in a way. Then other might see an idea and develop it further. Its something that I would like to see from other artists as well because I think it may show something interesting.
