Monoland ”Pimp” by ATAK & Martin Barber
Explicit references are always best: it’s conceived as a ’remake’, or better: hommage to David Shrigley’s video for Blur’s Good Song.
fantastic outsider art piece. (thx for posting funtoo.)
beautiful paintings. weird paintings. beauitfully weird paintings. and they move. i like it.
i really love all those details about it, e.g. the lettering is great.
virtually haptic. You want to touch the screen to feel the roughness. Lovely!
Dont see how thats related to Shringly or Goodsong, they both are computer aided puppet animation? The artwork is god, but using flash and the bad masking , adn rough edges sort of made it hard for me to pay attn to the overall motion.
much as i hate flash, this is a rare example of something that probably wouldn't have struck me as much if it had been done smoother/more filmicly. i think the zoomed pixels, bad edges and overall too rare-ness of it is actually what gives it the haptic quality okapi mentioned. it comes in gratingly close to the bone/retina, and challenges some comforting assumptions about digital vs. real world media.
I have no problem when pixelated edges whne they play into the piece, the graphics are hand done paint, if it was 8 bits gifs, or grabs for google img. or even DV, it would make sense. but the contrast distracts from what the pieces is working twoards, i mean even the repetitive motions in the animation fit with the string puppets they're emulating.
