Look Around You
First of all, I'm about seven years behind the BBC on this one, but only a month behind Cartoon Network, so I figured it was worth a post for all of those out there, like me, without cable. Secondly, don't read the rest of this until you have watched the video and learned your lesson of the day.
This mind-numbing masterpiece is the brainchild of British writers/comics Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz. It was first aired on BBC in 2002. The first season has since been picked up by Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Be forewarned: There are only 8 ten-minute "modules" in the first (and arguably best) season which is sure to leave you wanting more. The good news: each episode of season one can be viewed in full and free of charge on youtube.
Also, all of the synth music for the show was composed by Serafinowicz and Popper and, with the exception of the theme song, is available for download here as well as online quizzes, wallpapers, and supplemental video clips of season 2. Enjoy.
Her work is awesome. Nature totems, sculpture collage, dreamy narratives. See more here.
