V.O.W N°9 (Video Of the Week, 28 February - 6 March 2011)
Credit should be given where it is due, and although millions of people have watched this video we believe that it's worth seeing it over and over again! In this case, Alex Roman, one of the international directors of SPYFILMS, has done an extraordinary job of compositing architecture through computer graphics. A true work of art, where we are given the opportunity to experience architecture through the cinematographic lens; the visual fusion between the third and the seventh arts. Even though the order is much disputed, the Seven Arts are sculpture, painting, architecture, music, poetry, dance, and cinema. Roman's film is subsequently named after architecture and cinema, a combination that exerts to produce breathtaking results.
The Third and the Seventh is the outcome of a year-long sabbatical to generate a more pure commercial illustration of his favorite architectural creations, from around the world; the culmination of this work. Architectural creations include, the German Pavillion, The National Parliament Building of Bangladesh, Naoshima Benesse House Museum, Milwaukee Art Museum, Elogio del Horizonte, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Philips Exeter Academy Library, The Looking Glass Building, Casa Huete, L, Orioll Chamber Hall and Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum.
Explore this magnificent video, in full screen HD, to only realize the mind-boggling capacity of CG (Computer Graphics) and the implications it holds for the worlds of art and architecture.
