Ever woken up and been slightly freaked out by the vague recollections of a dream you just had? That happens to Pask D’Amico an Italian animator all the time too.
Take this for example.
One day I dreamed a mouth that spoke to me from the heart of the galaxy. The geometric lines that composed it were fractals that intersected with a regular intervals. This voice was singing a Mantra in an unknown language: I did not understand the meaning of his words but I could snatch the essence of his voice. Informed me that the human was life form most anomalous of all the Cosmos:the perfection of the body, the mind irrationality and our false perception of time.
Odd yes. But what is the true difference between the dreams you and I have and the ones Pask experiences? Well, he then goes on to recreate & animate his dreams…
After 123 days of locking himself in his production studio, editing, tweaking, creating and rearranging he’s come up with his latest creation - L’Homme Grotesque. A faith re-enactment of his peculiar dream.
A twisting, morphing kaleidoscope of body parts that are as unnerving (once you realise what they actually are) as they are strangely captivating – set against a soundtrack that is equally as hypnotic. It’s Vimeo’s Staff Pick of The Week – but be honest, it’s also a contender for one of the most bizarre yet coolest video of 2012.
