Last March we reviewed the debut album from Dark Hip Falls and now we get to see what one of those songs would actually look like if it was a visual, rather than audio piece of art. Tess Martin, a Seattle and Amsterdam based animator brilliantly used ink, water and gum-arabic solution animation in a stunning fashion, crafting a masterpiece that marries the melody with the ink in near perfect synchronicity.
Here’s a great article by the artist, sharing how these visuals came to be. Making Of Lam2: Red Hands
In an piece on City Arts, Mendonsa says he was drawn to Martin’s animation because of its “restless, breathing quality.”
