The Psychedelic Deconstruction of an Ordinary New York City Street

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

Cyriak Harris, an animator known for his disturbing, Escheresque animations, brings his signature style to this music video for Eskmo's "We Got More."  Make sure to watch it full screen with the volume up to appreciate the meticulous choreography of live action elements that defy the laws of physics. The blog NYPD.be pinpoints the location of the scene at the intersection of 8th Avenue and 58th Street, and from Google Street View, it looks accurate. The track is available from Ninja Tune here.
