This is a superbly created piece of animation which captures the imagination. The world is monochrome until an invisible hand starts to color it in. Unfortunately, one animal is asleep and misses the chance to be painted... Surprisingly, this is in fact an advert for French kid’s channel TiJi. While we normally wouldn’t embed adverts like this in to Kuriositas, our French readers are such a small minority that this could not be mistaken for a plug for the channel, so we let it slip in. It is such a lovely piece of work, how could we fail to allow it some space?
Agustina Woodgate is an Argentine artist living in Miami whose work includes everything from doormats to produce-sticker collages to giant rugs made of stuffed-animal "hides." When she's not doing all that, Woodgate also finds the time to go "poetry bombing" around Miami thrift stores. Using her deft hands and a needle and thread, Woodgate sews short poems into pieces of clothing with the goal of anonymously brightening some shopper's day.
"...all that's left are beautiful cyborgs who bleed plants." Now that I've seen it, I think this phrase pretty much sums it up. I'm reminded of Patrick S. Farley's webcomic, which I think is sadly offline now and whose name I now forget, where he imagines a distant future where a dead Jain is somehow reincarnated into an extremely powerful AI on an outbound colonization ship. The Earth has been destroyed by an unspecified nanoweapon of some kind.
