«Relief» - Julien Maire.
French artist Julien Maire has created a ‘film without film’ by utilising 85 3D printed figurines which move around an old rotational projection system to mimic an old film reel; an illusion of a motion picture.
Crafted from a semi-translucent resin turned into stereolithographic figurines, the slides depict the various stages of a man digging a hole. The projector creates a fuzzy square on whatever surface the image is projected onto, with the character appearing to move in the centre.
Maire produced the work as part of his FabLab residency at the iMAL Centre for Digital Cultures and Technology. A full video has yet to be released online but these images provide some idea of the resulting ‘film’.

*Guys, it’s not Ebola, it’s just a long-overlooked coding error.
*On the other hand, it’s one bug that I most definitely have on the overworked Apple laptop here. Scream! Run! It’s subtle, ugly, and will be with us for years!
