Watching aerial footage of Earth and its beautiful landscapes is hypnotizing and wonderful. Talented German photographer and filmmaker Roman De Giuli (previously) recreated this feeling, but without leaving the studio. In his latest short film, cleverly named Satellike, he imitates the rivers meandering through canyons and other regions. It looks like satellite footage; only it was made using ink and dried pigments.
I admire the artists who can make masterpieces from ordinary, everyday things. German photographer and videographer Roman De Giuli is definitely one of them, and his latest video Materiality just blew me away. With some iron powder, good lighting and a camera, he created a mesmerizing video you’ll want to watch again. And again.
‘Sometimes, the complexity of simplicity makes us fail to preserve the fundament of all we are and all we represent’.
This is the opening line for the description of ‘SINGULARITY’, a mesmerizing macro video by award-winning photographer Roman De Giuli. And while it might seem contrived, it couldn’t be more true.
That’s because this psychedelic adventure was captured with nothing more than glass components, various liquids and fabric dyes, all of which come together to create a visual feast for those who enjoy out of this world imagery.
