The Apple “Pro” site has a great video profile of Toyko artist Takagi Masakatsu. He has got to be one of the best “stock” filters users I’ve seen. Some of his effects remind me of the old mac program “Painter” which added pressure/texture/light to brush strokes, but his application usage doesn’t list it (Is it even still around?). Okay – so he’s a bit hippy – but so am I at heart ; )!
“Takagi Masakatsu is a visual artist and musician whose work knows no aesthetic borders. He has presented video installations and performed live at art spaces around the world. He also produces music videos, as well as music for commercials and film. He has toured with musician and remix artist David Sylvian. In 2006, “Bloomy Girls,” a visual book with his video arts collection, was released. Res magazine named him one of the 2006 RES 10, an annual selection of emerging artists who will influence the worlds of film, video, design, advertising, music, and media art in the upcoming year and beyond.”
