1925 aka Hell
1925 aka Hell (by Max Hattler) from Max Hattler on Vimeo.
An animation loop inspired by French outsider artist Augustin Lesage's 1925 work A Symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World:
heaven. Something about these reminded me of little netherwerks. It really reminds me of the limits of language. I'm not sure I could describe a passage like this to players. I wish video game makers would focus more on this kind of thing than worrying about storylines. If I lived closer to Cyclopeatron maybe I'd get to travel through this on a rickety, wooden, space-voyaging wizard's tower.

The mechanism seems almost like an M.C.Escher dungeon or something straight out of Hellraiser IIReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments. That pic of Lesage makes me think of a madman capturing forbidden truths from beyond the stars.ReplyDelete
