This colorful trip was created by Argentinian artists Matias Vigliano and Dante Zaballa.
I recommend looking into to Vigliano‘s website, to see his beautiful illustrations.
Strata cut is an animation technique invented by David Daniels. He explains:
“Stratacut is the revealed technique in a way but what you are really doing is sculpting time. You are creating these blobby-spaghetti extrusions with a lot of distortions in them. You are calculating how they will be revealed in time. The potential energy that has been sculpted into them is revealed as kinetic energy once it is cut apart. So I tried to figure out all the possible geometric principals on which the twisting of the shapes would yield the ideal result; the blinking eyes, rotating faces, walking, etc.”
the whole interview in “The Art Of the Title Sequence” is highly recommended.
The next clip is from his cult student film “Buzz Box”, I think it’s brilliant, but might freak you out:
Ryan Larkin (1943-2007) was a Canadian animator, who in 1969 was nominated for the Academy Award for is short psychedelic animation “Walking”. Three years later he released the acclaimed film “Street Music”, again, a tripy colorful short film, hand drawn with no narrative, but with a distinct and simple theme.
Soon after that, Larkin fell into severe drug abuse, alcoholism and homelessness. In 2002, another Canadian animator, Chris Landreth, Made this short film about him and won an Oscar for it.
* BAD TRIP Notice – Caution this clip features (some) dark materials and might catalyze bad trips, especially while under the influence of psychedelics.
One of the defining characteristics of the psychedelic visual experience, and of the psychedelic experience in general is endless transformations of things morphing into each other, as you can see in other videos which were featured here on the DPV, such as The Amazing Mr. Brickford.
This video created by Andreas Hykade also shows this tendency: Morphing the whole world upon itself, skipping between dimensions and amazing landscapes of figures and emotions.
