the geometric form immersed in the seascape




the project from tbm studio offers an insight into how the natural environment can experiment with animated, geometric forms. it first appears to be layered on top of an evening seascape, before the waves reveal that the ‘square’ is very much inside this composition. it then offers a restricted view through pine trees in the fog. melodrama is provided when it finds its way into a thunder and lightening storm, before being transported to the tranquility of a rocky mountainscape. the video concludes with the ‘square’ sat among chopped pieces of timber that are stood tall, before, they unexpectedly fly towards the viewer in the eeriest of fashions.

  • The hypnotic sound is much more mesmerizing than the quadrilateral insertion. Better if it was an ellipse with golden proportion …

  • This is really interesting, and I love how crisp the layering is. I have seen this style of design though, most often on Tumblr when people are trying to incorporate a geometric figure with a vast landscape.
