    Chloe Early came to mind for me too. But I think I like these better. More… metaphysical.

    • Stuart

      I think Chloe’s a little more accessible, and a little less dark.
      This is almost too surrealistic for my taste.

  • lieze

    I love this! Makes me think of Francis Bacon’s work. Pretty awsome. His work does look alot like some work I saw in Juxtapoz a couple of months ago. hmmm…

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.
