Video and the Origin of the Species

August 4th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Dad Video, Video, Video

From my friend SkimKim, who has a funny and profane foodblog from the urban wastelands (and who showed me how to dismember a goat last year), comes this pretty incredible piece of existentialist urban stop-motion wall animation (does that cover it?). I’m not gonna try to make this be about fatherhood, except to say that imagination apparently doesn’t desert everyone after childhood. Some people manage to keep it alive and well. More power to them.

I don’t know much about the artist(s) who did this–you can find them here–but they work is sort of like Banksy in motion, which reminds me again of the awesomeness that was Santa’s Ghetto, the Bethlehem art/relief project from a few years back.  Anyhow, check them out. Amazing work.
