Lifelong Friendship Society has posted some new video work. (Well, new to me at least.)
Even though they tap into imagery and aesthetics salvaged from the furthest reaches of my childhood memories, LFS always manages to surprise me with their approach to their projects; they don’t settle for simple nostalgia and recycled kitsch. They do something that is somehow simultaneously new and familiar.
And you can tell LFS doesn’t sit in front of a blank comp in AfterEffects waiting for "inspiration" to strike. They get their hands dirty from the get-go, playing with images and sound and concepts like ADD-addled chemists under the influence of a psychedelic rapture from another time.
As always, check out the Video Bin for some entertaining/interesting/weird work.
