Last time we heard from Kris Moyes, he was hanging out with the underwear clad Kirin J Callinan in the Blue Mountains. The result was the excellently haunting GIF inspired Way To War clip. This time round he’s teamed up with Grizzly Bear and produced another excellently haunting GIF inspired clip for gun-shy and yes, it’s probably a little NSFW if razors to the skin and haircuts by force are frowned upon at your workplace.
SPOILER ALERT for those of you who prefer to let conceptual art speak for itself. Here’s what Moyes had to say about the clip.
The idea came from a question:- if the creative energy of any living organism could be seen, what would it look like? Ed, Daniel, T and Bear demonstrate where their creative energy is
located by extracting their hair, nails, skin, sweat, tears and blood.
This is an invitation for a very rare glimpse of what creative energy
could look like on a molecular level, if it could be seen.
Of course this hypothesis would not hold much weight in the various
scientific circles, but, it is a good question to ask. Science has tried
unsuccessfully to explain where creativity comes from. Why some humans
have a creative drive and others do not, why this person can draw but
does not have a musical ear, or why this person is better suited to the
clarinet and not the guitar, and why some people can play every
instrument they come into contact with.
Ew, creativity looks kinda gross… yet oddly captivating.
