Pagan Psychedelic Puppets

Clinic’s latest video features a rite of horned hippy puppets summoning up some entity. what could have been a disturbing or just a bizarre image is kept sweet and small by the explicit craft of puppetry.

Well, I am speachless. Check out the artist’s page for better quality versions and even more mind bending animations [the better versions are now embedded here].

Clinic – ‘The Witch’

27 Nov

Following the recent Jefferson Airplane video, Here’s one from Clinic, a Liverpool indie-rock band. The 1960’s style light shows still works for psychedelic rock, only now it has that added nostalgia that goes well with their retro chic. I started with their video for ‘The witch’ an than got to their live performance that of course applies a trippy light show, and in between found a few more nice videos that go way beyond this convention, but retain a colorful delirious look. Soon on DPV!

Watching this video makes you realize the things you cann’t do on TV these days. ok so back then they had to say “smoke banans” but man did they go banans…

Onur Senturk – Nokta

24 Nov

Some twisted liquidz from Onur Senturk in this short motion piece.

Caural – Lake

22 Nov

Sean Capone created this music video using photos taken with a cell phone as a base.

Here’s a pretty hypnotic project he did for PUMA: The Book of Five Rings

In “The Time Tunnel” he mashed together all sorts of time-travel sequences found in sci-fi films and the result is quite trippy as might be predicted.
On his Youtube channel are some other, more slower pieces that are worth checking out, like animated wallpapers designed for events.

Not Knot – The Mathematics of Knots, Links and the Space around them

21 Nov

When you experience that the actual world you see is only one way of seeing the world, you start perceiving worlds of possibilities amidst the actual. This is a kindred appeal in psychedelic practices, philosophy and modern mathematics etc.

Expand your mind, expand your actual possibilities.

Acid Washed – Snake

20 Nov

This video for the House band Acid Washes was designed by graphic artist Anthony Burrill.

It’s the combination of extreme simplicity, full abstraction and bright colors that got this wonderful artist to a blog that deals with psychedelic aesthetics, but I love his work regardless of that.
