Sculpture and Animation

New media means new way of seeing.

The new tiny jerky videos we're watching on our comuter now exploit the limitations of the medium, evoking a cartoon flip book or silent movie. The jerky animation makes one watch more closely and allows for more playful fantasy. Inanimate objects begin to live and move. Pillows become clouds or stairs. Socks become fish, bubbles, a little pet.

So nice to see humor, tenderness, play and ambiguity in a music video by Oren Lavie.
