ELEMENTS BY MAXIM ZHESTKOV

by Ariadna Zierold

Elements is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov about nature, physics, art and love. More than 2 billion elements/particles governed by tensions and forces of nature were used to tell stories and show emotions through the motion of collective behavior.

The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements/blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.

Excellent illustrations and gif-work from London based multi-talented artist Stephen Vuillemin. Stephen has elevated the art of the animated GIF by producing work specifically for that format, and subsequently, has been commissioned by art directors to create animated GIFs to run in online publications.

Vuillemin has been crafting bold and exciting work mixing illustration, comics, and animation, with no order of preference. His compositions include opulent palettes, where sci-fi meets fashion and lifestyle, on a sometimes vulgar, sometimes grandiose mode.
