You know when somebody sends you something, and it's exactly what you needed, but you don't realize you needed it until you get it? Yes, that is precisely what this is.
This art/music video, "Rippled," is a collaboration between Darcy Prendergast and the creative team at OH YEAH WOW. They use the music of ALL INDIA RADIO to animate light frame by frame. It's all real people, shot by a normal camera using long exposure. I'm in love with it. I love how they make the people who puppet the lighted-world into ghosts. I'm drawn to the idea of them, to the idea of things that linger and haunt and exist in shades of themselves. It's beautiful, the way these people exist on another plane, just out of reach.
