review: infinity in a grain of pixels

this appeared unsolicited on my amazon page:
Infinity in a grain of pixels. Christopher Carneal (Los Angeles, August 17, 2004)

Admittedly I was in an induced "receptive" state of consciousness while viewing this DVD, but I don't think that condition invalidates my amazement with these motion graphics. Unlike most computer aided animation, these pieces feel like they could be timeless. As an animator myself, my impression of the first minute or so was cynical and critical and then I "got it". Whatever you get out of viewing this depends on how much attention you pay to the details it triggers in your imagination. If you patiently allow these visuals to unfold (because some are really slow), it can be like kinetic meditation.

Well worth the price and certainly worth supporting the hours of work it must have taken to create this art.

Thank you Chris for such eloquence! Posted by spot at October 19, 2004 02:00 PM
