Wild Beasts: Brave Bulging Bouyant Clairvoyants
Wild Beasts - Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants. Dir: OneInThree from OneInThree on Vimeo.
Sorry I have been horrible about keeping up posting mixes but I haven't been at home much in the past few weeks and when I have I've been quite busy. I hope some of these video clips will tie you over until the next mix.
About this video: This music video was made by the british studio OneInThree. Apparently they had 9 plus computers working for over a week straight to process the footage in the video. The concept for the video is based on an unfinished Escher lithograph from 1956 which utilizes whats known as the "Droste Effect" (named after a dutch cocoa of the same name whos packaging featured a nurse holding a platter with a package of cocoa which in turn had a nurse holding a package of cocoa...) Anyways the final product is rather impressive. Although relying on a gimmick effect of sorts the usage and technical complexity makes the aesthetic of the effect hold water. Watch it you'll find yourself strangely fixated.
