Muto — revisiting a wall-painted animation

[youtube: 540]

From about a year ago, but new to me. At any rate, this ‘ambiguous animation’ from the artist Blu, which takes place across outdoor/indoor walls across both Buenos Aires and Baden (in southwest Germany), is worth revisiting for its pure, jaw-dropping, how-did-you-DO-that? artistic quality.

It’s tough to explain how cool a piece of street art it is without just POINTING at the clip. I could say, ‘There’s this creature, and he runs 2D across the walls, and turns into bugs, and manages to interact in a 3d environment, and runs through pipes and gets all blobby and pulls off a robot head that runs around like a spider, and…’

But it’s probably best if you just watch the darn thing already.
