Forever / Universal Everything

There is a spectacular installation by Universal Everything over at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. “Forever is a large videowall installation of endless animations responding to an ever changing soundtrack. The bespoke generative design system at the heart of Forever will spawn unique audio-visual films every day, forever.”

Sadly the installation is only up until February 1st which totally underminds the piece in way, but if you’re in the area let me know what it’s like in person!

This video and the one below were both directed by Jack Laurance & Rex McWhirter.

    The 1st video is not compelling at all. I wish it was filmed in a way that really captured the feeling of what was going on visually, instead it felt like a bad music video to cool electronic music.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.

Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.
