THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF EVERYTHING

We recently made an album teaser music video for Josh Pyke's THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF EVERYTHING out 5th JULY!

The animation set up used multiple Layers of glass stacked between piles of National Geographics, lots of lamps, a stills camera, paper, tweezers, glue and a whole lot of patience.

We painstakingly printed and hand cut hundreds of frames of Josh performing the song.

Each layer of glass held varying paper parts, while each element was moved to create the eerie textural vibes and shadows.

Morning Meeting Hallucination

Hey now! Here's some pretty excellent news!

Greedy Hen were recently commissioned by Artbank to create an animation for their collection.

Artbank, if you were wondering, is the largest buyer of contemporary Australian art in the country.

And what makes them so damn interesting is that they promote Australian culture by making the collection available for rent. And then in a two thumbs up move, they reinvest their clams straight back into it.

So basically their collection blows our brains with artworks by Australian artists who we dig and admire immensely. We really are very humbled and stoked to be included in it.

Below is our 55 second animation.

It's called 'Morning Meeting Hallucination'

Syrupy, textural and surreal in flavour, the work evokes a momentary lapse of concentration.

You may have noticed a sudden increase in botanical imagery in our work all of a sudden.

Well our studio is currently under attack by vines and they're creeping into our brains.

To make the animation we took photos of Kate's hands wiggling, then printed and cut every single frame. They looked like hundreds and hundreds of spirit fingers. Image Alt Text

We then took photos from above, collaging paper cut outs onto layers of glass.

Morning Meeting Hallucination can be seen at our exhibition Go Forth, at Gallery 2010 until Sunday 16th Dec (details below) or on the Artbank vimeo channel.

GO FORTH

Image Alt Text

Go Forth is about exploration. It's steering towards the unknown but knowing once you are there.

The works in this show are based on an eery momentary lapse in everyday life.

It is a celebration of moving forward into the unfamiliar without hesitation.

Go Forth opens December 13th at Gallery 2010

We're really excited about it!
