Cut-and-paste in motion/
A friend of mine sent me a link to a music video today. She said she thought I'd like it. And she was right.
The video (above) is by collage artist Winston Hacking (who also does more traditional cut-and-paste ... and collage GIFs!) and is reminiscent of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" stop-motion classic (which is reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's amazing Monty Python animations).
And while I dig the Shauf music video, I really fucking dig the one Hacking did for Flying Lotus (below).
Watching these videos, I started thinking about other video collages I've stumbled across online recently. Specifically, the animated loop "Tango" by Polish artist Zbigniew Rybczyński from 1980 (via).
I'm not sure if there's a larger point to this post other than to share all of these awesome videos and to say: Collage is amazing and versatile, and amazingly versatile.
Cut. Paste. And repeat.
