Nude Dancers & Drones

nude dancers are censored by carefully programed drones in japanese ad campaign
gif by designboom / courtesy of BUYMA to promote their latest stock of clothing, online japanese retailer BUYMA has realized a commercial campaign that cleverly integrates technology, design and dance. the scene stars two completely naked dancers that perform a routine alongside tchaikovsky’s ‘swan lake suite’, whilst a fleet of carefully programed drones perfectly move in tandem — censoring their most intimate body parts. humorously, the drones, each clutching a small sheet of white paper, cover and conceal the dancers’ not-suitable-for-work areas as they leap and launch their bodies around the stage. what starts out with two dancers quickly progresses into a highly orchestrated scene, with multiple drones joining in to help hide bouncing breasts and flailing phallic parts. finally, the closing slide of the short feature displays the phrase ‘buy clothes’. ”

Tim Macmillan Early Work 1980 – 1994

“The ‘Time-Slice’ camera was first devised in 1980 by Tim Macmillan at Bath Academy of Art during his BA. Fine Arts degree course. Originally a painter, Macmillan was interested in combining Cubist theory with contemporary technology. Initially using hand-made photographic emulsions and photo grams, he went on to create a series of cameras creating multiple viewpoints of a space which were then collaged together. The multiple camera concept then made a lateral leap to being applied to cine film. The first camera involved a length of 16mm film negative, clear Perspex spacers providing a focal length and a strip of opaque 16mm cine magnetic tape with a pinhole drilled into each frame. A simple shutter over the magnetic tape then provided the means of exposure. The result was a tracking shot through a space. The profound revelation was that while the viewer experienced a move through space, time was frozen. A paradox! The effect is also known as ‘temps mort’ (dead time) & ‘virtual camera’, with various companies advertising under names such as ‘Timetrack’, ‘Multicam’ & ‘Big Freeze’.”

PLAS+IQUE by Frank La Rant


“For most of his youth, Frank La Rant was unrecognized for his brilliance. Raised by famed French designer Pri Sah, Frank left his village home at the tender age of 16 to pursue his higher calling. Finding many fashion institutions to be unfulfilling, La Rant went out on his own, searching for inspiration until that fateful day when he was inspired by Fruit of the Loom’s plastic test pants. He is now taking his unique plastic style to every part of the world, opening our eyes to who we really are. Because, as he says, “It’s what’s underneath that counts.”
