You probably saw Katie and Alisha (and AD Andrew Wilcox) working on topographic map like art pieces a few months back.
This project had zero budget. Actually less than zero budget. So everything had to be hand-crafted in house. Katie and Alsiha had tons of help with models/supply/errands from folks like Chelsea, Walker, Nishat, Sam and Ademar.
Production on this was largely hope, luck, chance….no one really knew how the ink would respond once it hit the wet art pieces. And though we were a little hesitant on “ruining” the clean versions with ink, everyone was super happy with the end results.
Check out the beautiful stills that Kyle took for us.
For Ecotrust, a conservation organization based in Portland, OR, W+K was tasked to plant the seed for the next big conservation movement. The focus is on bioregions — and living with an awareness for the land on which you live. We created 30 tiny topographic maps made of paper and wood. We slowly fed colored inks to small areas on these maps and filmed the natural movement of the ink through the tiny paper worlds. Over this we created a manifesto for the movement, accompanied by a powerful drum track courtesy of “Portland Taiko.”
