Ohbijou / New Years

Toronto-based art collective Exploding Motor Car has just released my favourite video of the year! The video is for Ohbijou’s song, New Years. The concept is brilliant, and the video is just beautiful.

It only has a handful of views on Youtube right now, but I’m sure that’ll change… Enjoy.

It looks like something Encyclopedia Pictura might make, don’t you think? Big round of applause for Exploding Motor Car, I want more.

  • God, this is good

  • this is umazing! instant fav~

  • everything about this is great

  • Clif

    Yeah this isn’t nearly as cool as fat joe walking in slow motion through a smokey night club wearing sunglasses in the dark………… not!

    Its so great when artists get video production that is just as artistic or more so than the song being featured.

  • great clip! I wish it had more rock creatures in it though, they were amazing!

    simply amazing. although unfortunately for the band, the video kind of overshadows the song itself!

  • Emu

    It truly is an artistic video – but I’m not sure if it will become my favourite video of the year. I always think there is so much more to come ;)

  • yeah dude

    HEY! LETS KEEP FAT JOE OUT OF THIS!

    • haha

    • Clif

      Hey lets use our indoor voices (said in a hushed tone)

      I just watched the Encyclopedia Pictura link Jeff posted and it changed my life. I love this kind of film making.

  • Very, very pretty. really like it. I also like that Clif through out a “not” joke.

  • Don’t know what you guys think about what i’m about to say, but, said the video is really good (no doubts about it), let’s also say that the incoherence between live action and stop motion is really noticeable. I think that’s a petty ’cause it seriously affects the believability of the created (amazing) world. PES (www.eatpes.com) is master in shooting stop motion even when it involves live action and as reference to my consideration i think that what David O’Reilly wrote in this article is perfectly what i meant to say, but just well (http://www.davidoreilly.com/2009/08/basic-animation-aesthetics#more-1544)

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
