This new music video by Cyriak Harris for Bonobo almost defies description, but if you recall the trippy video he did for Eskmo featured here about two years ago you’ll have an idea of where it’s going. Cyriak uses mid 20th-century stock video as building blocks to create machines, robots, and other bizarre tableaus reminiscent of Terry Gilliam-esque zoetropes. I just said that. Terry Gilliam-esque zoetropes. What does that even mean? Watch the video and I challenge you to describe it any better. (via lustik)

Update: According to Jeff over at Booooooom, Cyriak was inspired by the 1981 film Tango by Zbigniew Rybczynski.

Sit back, turn up the volume and set this video to full-screen. Behold the lastest stop motion music video from animation duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski (previously here and here) for Japanese singer-songwriter Shugo Tokumaru. The video was launched just this morning courtesy of Pitchfork and features a brilliant, continuous parade of what must be thousands of cut paper and foam core silhouettes set to Tokumaru’s quirky track Katachi.

Boston-based animator Jake Fried just released his latest psychedelic animation, The Deep End, which was drawn entirely with ink, coffee, and white-out. The animation is continually layered on top of itself as forms morph, bend and transform across the screen. I can’t help but wonder how thick the final canvas is with so many layers of illustration. If you were as blown away by this as I was, you’re in luck: see some of his earlier animations such as Sick Leave and Waiting Room.

Fine artist and designer INSA creates elaborately painted walls that are photographed in sequence to create these amazing, psychedelic animated gifs. His latest piece (top 3 images) is a collaboration with artist Stanley Donwood called Hollywood Dooom to help celebrate the release of a new album for Atoms for Peace, AMOK, for which Donwood did the album artwork. INSA painted the entire exterior of XL Recordings four times to create the frames for the animation. Of the work he says:

My challenge was to take two very static items, a beautiful lino-cut and a less beautiful box of a building, and bring them to life. After a week of sweating in the Los Angeles late summer sun re-painting the whole building several times I got there. Animated as a continuous GIF it may only live online but some would argue that is where most now live there lives…

You can see more of INSA’s gif work and other pieces on his blog. (via the creator’s project)

These two videos by animator Rogier Wieland (previously) have been around for quite a bit but somehow the totally escaped me. The two shorts were created using video stills transferred to cardboard cutouts that were then animated on location to create a fantastic visual. If you liked this also check out Sticky Man by 15-year-old budding animator Eduard Taberner.

Though I just posted about these guys back in July, I’m not going to lie, I have a huge e-crush on RRRRRRRROLL (previously). This anonymous collective of five photographers and artists create a new animated GIF every single week that might as well arrive in my feed reader wrapped in a bow. Do yourself a favor and follow their Tumblr, bookmark it, subscribe to their feed … whatever. It’s like internet vitamins.
