Video Premiere: Dark Hip Falls, “Lam2: Red Hands

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.”
