what did we watch: strawberry swing

Strawberry Swing from Matt Clark on Vimeo.

there are so many things i could say about this video. first of all, the claymation and motion graphics, the color and compositions are gorgeous and absolutely excellent in their execution and overall result. the concept of the story is simply unsettling. the segment when the flesh extends makes my skin crawl and makes me want to physically turn away from the video and still keep watching. i think it causes this repulsion because the idea is so...inhuman and surreal.

and the end makes me sad. but i understand that this is the realistic end and that i should appreciate things without....the ultimate satisfaction of neatly tied bows that i so often crave.

thanks to notcot for the link

pondering on urban phenomena...

equally non-fairytale type of ending in another metro related video (shown to me by caroline): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqwgeZooUmQ

heartbreaking! but refreshing bc things never end that way, even though its the more probable outcome.
