Kou Kou

こうこう | koukou from takashi ohashi on Vimeo.



Here is something akin to fireworks for the 4th.

"KOU KOU is a visual work based on an abstract animation synchronized with a song comprising the unique syllabic sounds of the Japanese language, without actually using any full words."

Longfellow’s Wayside Inn



Please rate this video for its boredom content, always using "Wooden Bridge Inspection" as your gold standard.

Add some extra points for the irritating traffic and nature noises in the background, and the wandering eyes of the narrators.

Jewel Spew

Artist Kourtney Keller offers the following explanation of what's going on in her video:

The subject of JEWEL SPEW is literally saturated with light…so much so that it endlessly sprays out of her in the form of light beams and jewel plumes. Likewise, her environment is saturated with jewels and she is choking on them. In the futile act of trying to shake them off, she activates the possibility that her predicament is terminal...
the subject of JEWEL SPEW is caught in a hypnotic video loop of spewing bling. She is not only surrounded by what is afflicting her, but appears contagious.

Is it only me, or is all this bunny-stroking oddly erotic?
