The Levni Yilmaz’s Tales of Mere Existence serie began in 1999 as a serie of animated comics. Each video shows a series of static cartoons, which appear gradually as if being drawn by an invisible hand.
Lev achieves the effect by drawing the cartoons on paper attached to glass, and placing the camera on the other side. Lev got the idea for the technique from the movie “The Mystery Of Picasso”(1956), which similarly showed Picasso’s paintings appearing from the other side.
Lev writes, draws, films, edits, and narrates the “Tales” videos, which touch on mostly mundane aspects of life. And what could be better to make a reflexion then how we see our bodies?
Merci, dear Javi, for this cool hint.
