Today's Obsession: Kim Pimmel
Kim Pimmel is a User Experience Designer with Adobe, a lighting designer, a photographer, and a huuuuge nerd.
My partner recently ran across one of his lighting experiments on Vimeo, playing with a combination of stop-motion photographs of lighting stitched into filmed footage, and mashed together with some of the soundtrack of Tron Legacy (In! Theaters! Soon!) nabbed from the trailers, resulting in a really lovely bit of abstract narrative filmmaking.
If you look at his personal site, you’ll see how his interests are fleshed out by looking at patterns, looking at how things react to one another, looking at how to mimic those reactions artificially.
This is an artist in love with the world around him.
