AUJIK warps urban landscapes and architectural bodies into living organisms

 

 

 

in artist AUJIK‘s most recent video production titled ‘spatial bodies’, urban landscapes and architectural bodies morph into autonomous living and self replicating organisms. domesticated and cultivated only by its own nature, this vast concrete vegetation oscillates between order and chaos.

AUJIK‘s vision for ‘spatial bodies’ has been cultivated over the past eight years, and is drawn from the artist’s personal relationship to the panoramas of tokyo and osaka. through a combination of aerial drone footage, digital manipulation in autodesk 3D studio, and google maps, dense urban landscapes and architectural objects contort and distort into autonomously moving creatures. the blend of remixed drone imagery and digital rendering forms an eerie and surreal sequence of scenes, where buildings wiggle, warp and wind through the cityscape as if living, breathing beings.
