Trippy Video of the Day: An Embroidery of Voids

AnEmbroideryofVoids3AnEmbroideryofVoids2AnEmbroideryofVoids1

The effect in this video is so simple; I can’t believe I haven’t seen this done before. This single channel video by artist Daniel Crooks was commissioned by Michael and Silvia Kantor for the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, with sound and music by Byron Scullin. I love the moment when the camera makes the right turn in the alley way.

Watch “An Embroidery of Voids” here until I can get permission to embed the video.
