    Hypnotic. Almost reminds me more of underwater plant life. Would love to see a second video that puts these underwater (not sure if that’s feasible…).

      Something kelp or coral-like–yeah I could see that!

  • Wow this is a real visual pleasure. The stop-motion quality gives the whole video a very unique tone, i love it

    • don’t think there’s any stop-motion – it’s just the sculpture rotating

      • Kimi

        Not sure about this specifically but a lot of his work is stop motion/computer graphic mix

      • It’s definetly stop-motion; you don’t see the wooden plates rotation, just how they instantaniously switch places.
        It’s very smoothly done, and it works perfect with the music!

    hi – it was filmed at 25 frames per second – they rotate around the same frame rate of the camera – lazy animation – yes when i put them upright they look like squid.

R.I.P. Prodigy

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
