Edwin Rostron’s “Morris and the Other”

I kind of love Edwin Rostron’s animated short, Morris and the Other. It reminds me of a more horrifying version of The Origin of Love, which I may or may not have played on repeat in my dorm room way back when. Anyway, I have no idea how to explain this video but the artist describes it as, “a hypnotic tale of frustration and desire, lovingly drawn in 2B pencil.” Works for me. Also: which one is Morris? I feel like the Other might be the ethereal floating diamond/kite. Maybe.

Another animation by Rostron after the cut.

How Your Money Works from MUSCLEBEAVER on Vimeo.

I had this exact conversation with Mom and Dad the other night over a bottle or four of wine. The alcohol may have played a major role in our enthusiasm, but it got pretty heated when Dad kept insisting capitalism “just works”. What I’m saying is, if you’re not up to the Michael Moore version, this is a much more aesthetically pleasing and humorous explanation of what’s wrong with the world today, courtesy of the MUSCLEBEAVER design team. And it will cost you less than four minutes of your lunch break!

Doug Burton’s Celestial Mechanics

Celestial Mechanics from Doug Burton on Vimeo.

Doug Burton’s 3D digital animation “Celestial Mechanics” was conceptualized as a kind of reality-fabric altering pulsating entity. A kind of self-combusting black holes. I am hoping for the day when I actually see the walls wormhole out to an alternative universe! The artist explains: “Through the transmogrification of the matter of the walls and space within and ouside of the studio I have been exploring he realms that exist beyond in a distant past or parallel present.” Heavy!
