Naufrage au Louvre, or "Shipwreck at the Louvre" by Etienne Molinier

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
In this charming animated short entitled "Naufrage au Louvre" ( or "Shipwreck at the Louvre") by Etienne Molinier, the flesh eating characters of The Raft of the Medusa literally spill out of the frame into the museum and hungrily pursue a museum guard. While some people may at times attack paintings in museums, the paintings rarely (if ever) attack visitors and museum employees. This animation being one of the few exceptions.

Music Video: Yo La Tengo's Animated "Ohm"

Music // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Yo La Tengo is one of the last true American indie bands from the heyday of the 1990s that is still together, making excellent music and putting on a fantastic live show. They also have a bit of fun with their image, and recently had "Simpsons" writer Donick Cary direct an animated, bizarre video for the track "Ohm", with animation done by Sugarshack Animation. The video follows a classroom instructional on what Yo La Tengo is. And there seems to be psychedelics involved, but that is just a guess we have.

Yamasuki Yamazaki

Erotica // Monday, June 10, 2013
We hope you enjoy this infectiously joyous and sweetly naughty animation from filmmaker and mask designer Shishi Yamazaki. After entering the Department of Design at the Tokyo University of the Arts, Yamazaki began experimenting with rotoscope animation using hand drawn watercolor paintings for each animated cel. Additionally, in May of 2010, this superbly talented multi-disciplinary artist began working on her lifelong project: creating one face mask each and every day of the year for years to come.

Erotica // Monday, May 20, 2013
Here's a fun video to round out your Monday afternoon, and it might even inspire you to beat the heat and go skinny dipping. This series of animated walks and runs, created using Flash by German-born, London-based animator Felix Sputnik, is a simple yet impressive exercise in basic locomotive techniques, featuring various animated female models to demonstrate the physics of movement, including the sway and bounce of the naked body as it runs, walks, and skinny dips with gleeful abandon. 

Watch: "OSCILLATE" by Daniel Sierra

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 20, 2013
For his MFA Computer Art Thesis at School of Visual Arts in NYC, Daniel Sierra explored and visualized "waveform patterns that evolve from the fundamental sine wave to more complex patterns, creating a mesmerizing audio-visual experience in which sight and sound work in unison to capture the viewer's attention." It sure worked on us. Watch the video after the jump...
