Friday Night Flicks: puppydust AKA Kim Taylor

Tonight’s flick continues the month’s astronomy theme. Here is a bit of background from animator Kim Taylor:

A journey across the stars and heavens through antiquated astronomical diagrams.

I unearthed some dusty old scientific textbooks in my father’s attic, and immediately became inspired by the delicately rendered diagrams, plots and schemata. These purely scientific visual aids became unwitting artworks on their own, which is something I really loved.

The short animation explores pathways through astronomy’s roots, dating back to antiquity with its origins in scientific, mythological and astrological practices.

The soundtrack is ‘Frosti’ by Bjork, from the incredible album ‘Vespertine’.

 

 

If you wish to watch more of Taylor’s videos this weekend, you can find them here.
