NOISE - A Dystopian Video Project

If the phones from which most already cannot be pried were to evolve into our anatomy, what would we become? Tweeting-texting-cyborgs? What if we were unable to interact on a personal or emotional level, except via text-based communication? If interpersonal communication was written in code, projected from our bodies like physical 'tweets' on behalf of our mind, would evolution would render our mouths useless? Would speech, expression, and touch become obsolete? When everything is shared, tweeted, followed, and clicked, do even the biggest moments simply get lost in a sea of inane vanity, noise, and triviality?

On Our Terms: The Illustrations

This summer, I made a bunch of illustrations for Jone Stone's production of the Lower Than Atlantis band documentary 'On Our Terms.' It was released in autumn with their album 'Changing Tune,' on Island Records. As the wind blows and design goes, images were of course edited down for use. I've finally now got 'round to making a short animation to show all the illustrations, set to some of the band's music, which I'll put up in the next post. For the moment, some stills of the illustrations:
