Posted:rah! that's pretty insane... the grainy video makes it look a bit digitally done though, was it an actual sculpture? for some reason it reminds me a bit of stelarc although i dunno if you'd aprreciate me saying that... have you thought about making a spinning one? anyway, awesome work man, i'd love to actually see that in action! biggrin

Posted:Its not actually a juggling sculpture I dont think.. It seems to be an animation of some sort. Claymation even. Perhaps its one of those new fangled digital sculptures? (ie the ones you put gloves on and sculpt out of digital clay...)

Posted:Looks like a juggling sculpture to me... Get a bunch of "frames" together (individually posed sculptures), spin them at a rapid interval, add a timed strobe (as mentioned on the creators site) and you have the perfect illusion of movement. I dunno why the extra image funkiness in the flash movie is there.. it's annoying. But I have no reason to doubt the sculptures are real..

Posted:I think what happens is it spins round fast and looks like its moving.

Posted:Ahh, ok. I was expecting to see an actual juggling sculpture... Like robotic or something. I was still correct in saying it was an animation.
