Video Art Thinks Big Response
Reading this article I was mostly drawn to the work of Nathalie Djurberg. In general her work is very gory and tedious. She does a lot of stop motion, which is interesting me just by itself. There's something thats so simple, yet elaborate about working with a bunch of different still frames to make motion. It's very time consuming but always looks great. I was also intrigued by the subject matter of her video art. In one video she was depicting a war between children and dogs over trash. In the video the kids are constantly dying, being awakened and tortured in the hospital. There seems to be elements of torture in all her work. it's kind of interesting to watch these claymations do dark things.
