Marco Brambilla

Brambilla is a video and installation artist that focuses on popular and found imagery. His work is presented in many different areas around the world. In looking through his website I thought that his work was very different from anything we’ve seen thus far.

The video below, one of his most recent works I found to be very intriguing. In watching the short snippet I was completely mesmerized by the color scheme and the soft movement and music. It felt like I was watching the introduction to a new fairytale movie. I also found the description to be interesting because of how he created this particular piece. The use of more the 200 Lidar scans seems like a lot of work.

In addition to the video above, I was also very amazed by his “Nowness” piece. I thought that he did a wonderful job of using various popular images and objects and placing them over an appealing background. I think the 3D aspect makes it so much cooler and I think that’s what made me want to watch this video over and over again.

Overall I thought that all of the videos I watched by Brambilla were very original. I think he does a wonderful job of taking objects and images that we are see everyday and incorporating them into a new piece of work.
