What are the limits of paper? Can a two-dimensional image move? Transform? Lift off the page? Following lavish multimedia issues including Scent, which featured vials of original perfumes, and World which came in an exclusive Gap satchel, Visionaire's 48th edition, Magic, brings the still picture to life in 25 unbound cards, 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches each, printed in the latest lenticular technology, a process that captures motion on a page.
Visionaire invited filmmakers, photographers and artists to explore the magic of motion. Contributors include Spike Jonze, Wong Kar Wai, Pedro Almodovar, Gus Van Sant, Viktor & Rolf, Mario Sorrento, Karl Lagerfeld and Moriko Mori. Their three-second clips were transformed into lenticular images, images that shift when seen from different angles. Remove them from the case, which features an 18-karat gold Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra on a satin ribbon, and tilt each one to and fro to watch it move.
From Visionaire: 48 MAGIC, sponsored by Van Cleef & Arpels, Visionaire invited filmmakers and fashion photographers to supply video footage that would be compressed into lenticular cards — an artful take on a medium that had previously been used chiefly as novelty. MAGIC features startlingly beautiful video works by Sofia Coppola, Spike Jonze, Pedro Almodóvar, Gus Van Sant, Wong Kar Wai, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, and Mariko Mori, among others, and was made extra magical with the limited-edition, 18-karat gold Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra charms that came embedded in each issue’s case.
