Blu is an Italian street artist who creates animated graffiti. He uses a method called stop frame animation, also known as stop motion animation, to create videos of graffiti that creeps, crawls, swims and flies. The animation method is time-consuming. The animator must move an object, or draw a new “frame” and take a picture after each small change to the scene. The series of images is then compiled into an animation by showing the pictures in quick succession.
This video is based on the big bang and the evolution of life on Earth. Blu has used paint to create a form of traditional animation, as well as incorporating found objects, and people, to create many of the scenes for the video. He works with his environment, using walls, pipes, windows and other man-made objects as a canvas for his animated street art. At one point he draws his animation frames on beach sand and then uses the sand as props while animating litter that he’s found strewn across the beach. Altogether, Blu’s Big Bang Big Boom animation is a comment of the effects that humanity has had on the planet, along with a prediction of how man will bring about the end of the world.
