Tom Darracott recently became the first recipient of our bursary award set up with Blurb. His resulting project, the hypnotic film Kiss Kiss, now forms the basis of a new book available to buy at Blurb.com

Darracott’s film, shown on the blog here, taps into his interest in airbrush art, particularly the work of Michael English and Philip Castle. In making it, he set up various scenes within 3D software and applied the same mirror-like material to a range of objects.

The final part of his CR/Blurb Bursary project was to turn a selection of images from the film into book form. To see a digital preview of the whole book, which has been created using Blurb, go here. It is also available to purchase, here.

We will also be giving away three copies of Darracott’s book via CR’s Twitter page over the next few days.
