Think Blade Runner Isn’t a Work or Art? Think Again.

Swedish artist Anders Ramsell has produced a 35-minute version of Blade Runner made up of watercolor drawings called Aquarelle. To reproduce this capsule summary of the film, Ramsell painted 12,597 frames by hand. It serves as a reminder of animation can look like if not done, as most is, for efficiency  purposes, but also honors the original films dream-like quality.  They are mildly abstract paintings forming a mildly abstract film in a mildly abstract way.

 

…Abstract.
