Hoàng:  Animated Type Experiments

Hoàng is a Vietnamese animator who lives and works in Saigon.  After getting a degree in graphic design he worked for a time doing branding and in-house design but became bored and went back to work at his family business.  His reason for going back to design and working in animation is fascinating:  

“When I first came to Instagram, I was very impressed with the moving typographic posters from the Western designers. I have seen many awesome poster designs before but it is all static. The endless animated poster makes me feel curious and I want to give it a try.  I am never good at animation.  When studying motion class, which is compulsory in university, I even fail once (or almost two).  The motion pieces you see on Instagram were all done by After Effect. Making gifs gives me satisfy.  I almost forget about the time when sitting here, in my room, watching these endless flashes on the screen.”

Hoàng was part of the Design in Motion Festival that was on all of the monitors at the Amsterdam Train Station on November 7th.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
