Galactic Mouthpieces And Grotesque Bodily Distortions Inhabit This Dream World Animation
It’s not always a good idea to discuss your dreams—they never make sense and it’s really boring for the other person—let along visualise them in an animation, because who knows what your subconscious might come up with when you’e in slumberland. But there’s always exceptions, especially if your dream was an interplanetary, kaleidoscopic journey into twisted abstractions of the human body.
That’s what Pask D’Amico did with the above animation L’Homme Grotesque, which resulted from 123 days of toil after he awoke one day dreaming about a mouth that spoke to him from the heart of the galaxy. A mouth that told him about humanity’s unique place in the universe, how time was a falsehood, and other cosmic insights.
The grotesque imaginings and fleshy fractals that are the products of D’Amico’s dream-mind at times look like the stuff of nightmares (particularly Cyriak’s nightmares), but it’s a visually entertaining trip nonetheless.
