    fantastic! although, another (partly) mcginley influenced video, i wonder if he had any part in it?

    • mummy

      i am not sure that ryan mcginley is the sole inspiration for nudity in the world

      • romke

        that’s not what i meant- the shots of them running/rolling down the hill evokes his imagery.
        for example: http://ryanmcginley.com/admin/summer/mcginley_falling_sand.jpg
        those shots were also similar to the work he did for the sigur ros video

      • mummy

        i guess it looks similar. i just don’t see what point it makes. if you look up “nude on sand” you will see millions of photographs and paintings that have a similar feel. i think people just love the satisfaction of being able to name an artist or director they know, and show how well they can match the images. its as elementary as matching colors or shapes. there is no real point to it.

    wow almost every single still in that video could be an artwork on itself

    another El Topo/Holy Mountain derivative. Alejandro Jodorowsky should get some money for this stuff. Still great looking, though.

    Fuck Jodorowsky and McGinley, this shit goes all the way back to Meshes of the Afternoon, you guys!

    i’m just so pleased that the new single is as delicious as their previous album. what a treat.

    this video is so dense with imagery, and it’s just really pleasantly..epic. bordering on gratuitous I think, but just bordering. love it.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
