Do any of you remember a brilliant video filmed at SICAF (the 7th Seoul International animation festival) that was all over the web late in 2003 – an artist who “painted” in sand? Here’s the post from November 2003. It was hosted at jamizine.com but that’s no longer active and a search produces mentions in forums, the fact that it was hosted by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois but again, a dead link.
Anyway, I had an email asking if I’d heard any more about him – I think Animal Planet want to feature him in a tv show – but a bit more digging and I’m fairly sure that Hungarian artist Ferenc Cakó is the man in question.
The short videos on Cakó’s site are much smaller in size and aren’t as spectacular as the sand.wmv that went down a storm but are still very enjoyable. So enjoy!
Update: here’s the original film from Sicaf – damn it’s good. Speakers on if you can. [Later that night – the link really does work now, sorry for the earlier gremlins.]
