Whilst conducting research for my animation module i found this awesome music video for the song “My place” by Navigators. The video itself basically is lyrics from the song portrayed in a visually interesting way, a very simple idea that’s been done many times however the execution via using fake vintage style matchboxes is what gives this piece an edge. Altogether there was 178 boxes altogether each uniquely designed by Pavel Fuksa a prague based designer. The imagery on the matchboxes uses block color in a way which creates a stylized retro quality that’s very reflective of the music. I love the simplicity and the randomness of the visuals, and how it links to the word that they’re portraying. All in all a very good find and one that i will definitely remember. Hope you liked it too. P.S. the song’s not too bad either, very catchy.

In this project we were asked to represent ourselves using matchboxes. It could be something surprising, an interest or something unusual about yourself. Basically a statement that tells people a little bit about yourself
Based on my love for music……well more to my ipod i created a 3-D collage inside the match box, using the ipod image i created a character something very simple. The cover is the part that i like the best, i ruined the actual cover of the match box, therefore i had to re-create it using some card that i found. I sketched out the apple logo and cut it out to leave the outline. Loved the simplicity of the design and very reflective to the whole apple brand.
I want to be tall with shoes
Oh yes i do, as you can guess i’m kinda short, but the good thing is that i can be tall as i want with the magic of heels!!! This match box is the bigger sized ones (you can get them from supermarkets) it was a bit easier to work with however, i still had to make the cover out of card again. The outside is an illustration of my foot and one of my favorite shoes. ^_^ The inside was various designs of other shoes and arranged to give a 3-D effect, so it gives the piece more depth. A Cinderella’s glass slipper image was used as the background as this links in with the piece and is one of my favorite Disney Movies!
