so, a museum of .gifs?
 
2014-01-16 04:06:27 PM
Yeah, my bank used to have these and so do lots of cheap Chinese restaurants.

I think I have an insurance company calendar with these.  Or a refrigerator magnet

I can go to a museum and enjoy that already. It's called LSD.

Those images are NSFW. Hell, some of those images could be considered child porn by Nazi admins.

What's the difference between Porn and Art?

It reminded me a little of Brian Eno's Thursday Afternoon.

I screamed in terror as I fapped.

I let go when age inappropriate material appeared. I swear.

That was kind of where my mind went too.  I'd be all for a museum with such paintings.

Not to piss on the parade, but in this day and age. Some of those painting could be misconstrued as child porn.....just saying it's probably not prudent to view these at work.

Video won't play for me.  From the sound of these comments, probably for the better.  Creepy is one thing (I like creepy).  Chris Hanson Creepy is another thing altogether.  Gonna hafta take y'alls word on it.

It's nudity from classical paintings, and that included naked little babies. Not sexual at all, stuff you'd see with Botticelli and Poussin, Bouguereau and Lorenzo Lotto. I didn't have a second glance, and don't know how any reasonable court would equate a fine art painting hundreds of years old that's been hanging in the finest museums on Earth with child porn.

Yep, see, there's your problem, right there. You used "reasonable" and "court" in the same sentence.

That felt like a trailer for a new sequel to 7th Guest.

I use Chrome and Vimeo used to work fine. It hasn't worked for a few months and I haven't changed anything. Vimeo works fine on Firefox.

I hate things like this (as I hate the response "Art is always being re-interpreted").

Some of these were of real landscapes - we CAN go to those places and see the beauty that inspired the artist in the first place.

Other ones, by having the motion go a certain way, applies an explanation to some of the actions.  Whatever "moment of time" is meant to be captured by the original pieces of art is now acted out in one point of view.  Maybe this is a subtle distinction, but it's important.

Phooey.

I believe Vimeo recently went 100% <video> and no Flash.

It works for me in Chrome. Check chrome://flags/ in chrome and see if, for some reason, you have some odd hidden video setting set. You can click the button that sayd "reset all to default". Mine should be all default as far as I know and it works for me.

Are you by chance on Linux and chose not to download some proprietary codec in Linux (and maybe using Chromium instead of real Chrome)?

I thought that it was wonderful! As an Artist myself I understand the desire to want your audience to get caught up in your work. I know that some will cry fowl at his use of "Classical" paintings, and will say this type of 'work' would carry more weight had he animated his own paintings, and I would agree. BUT what he has done is rather unique and lovely.

If this is his stepping stone to more original works then very cool. If he doesn't possess the ability to produce his own artworks to apply this technique to I think it still has merit. And I'm sure there are many people that would pay for a 'personal selection' of artworks to be given this treatment and to own.

Who knows where this could lead? New animation techniques, new appreciation for old Masters, a spark lit within a budding artist? I think it's worthwhile...if you don't, fine. Art is absolutely NOT "One-size-fits-all" but if you think it's beautiful no one will ever be able to change your mind.

Don't say that. I got excited for a few seconds at the thought of a new 7th Guest.

Hey, it's all good. I have to say that I did find some of them mildly disturbing - sort of an uncanny-valley-lite effect.
 
2014-01-16 11:48:43 PM
Those effects remind me of that Japanese site which could animate any face. I used to get some pretty nightmare-inspiring ones going after grabbing a few from the weekly mugshot roundup.

I just tried it and it still works! Creeeeeepy

 This style of animated paintings reminded me of the one hanging in the Pickman Inn... ( "In the Mouth of Madness")

/ I'm a bit creeped out by it...

They didn't bother me at all in that sense.  Sure, you could see some over definition of edges in some of the scenes, from having seen a lot of photoshops in your time....but other than that...

I thought they were fantastic, though I only watched about half.  Will watch it again later when not on the laptop.

I thought some of them were brilliant, really drawing out or highlighting the original quality...Ie demonstrating the lighting in the original content and how realistic it was, the motion really added something that you may otherwise not notice as outstanding.

This.  Don't view it at work or whatnot, because people are a lot less reasonable than you may think.

There is a LOT of "skin", some of it erotic in nature.  Erotic as a subject, not necessarily spank material, but enough to get you in hot water.

Hm, hangs and loads slow on the big computer.

On the plus side, there's a good plugin for chrome to download Vimeo.
