MUTO: animation on public walls (Commonplace Book)

Sara wanted to share this video for the commonplace book. It is pretty cool, and about seven and a half minutes long (although since it is not a narrative you do not need to see the whole thing).

Oh, man, that was awesome. I especially loved the way the drawings occasionally interacted with "real world" objects. Crazy, and super cool.

WOW. That was mind-blowing. Geoff, I think that your comment about not having to watch the whole thing does the viewer a disservice - Seven and 1/2 minutes is a small price to pay to see something like this. This is life-affirming stuff to the degree that it puts to shame any previous use of the term.

But I'll be shocked, SHOCKED! if I don't have a hard time falling asleep tonight. Freaky scary in places, especially the juxtaposition with the broad daylight and the soundtrack.

Thanks, Sara.

yeah I agree, marc. I think that a) there is a narrative, esp if you watch the whole thing. And b) just because you may not think there is a narrative you TOTALLY need to watch the whole thing. Bloody amazing!!!

also, spending 7.5 minutes watching is peanuts compared to the time it took the artist to film this thing.
