Cyriak: Bonobo “Cirrus”
Cyriak is no stranger to Motionographer. His experiments in looping animations are the closest thing you can get to a mind-altering experience without ingesting psychedelic drugs. This is both economical and fun.
His latest, a music video for Bonobo’s “Cirrus,” features the same surreal looping technique for which Cyriak is celebrated, with source material that looks as though it was mined from the public domain video treasure trove, The Prelinger Archive.
As the video progresses, its campy tableaux morph and coalesce into nightmare machines and gigantic robots of consumerism gone amok. It’s beautifully creepy stuff, done the way only Cyriak can do it.
