Video | Animation | “Eyeoneye” – imaginative fuzzy felt animation explores the human universe with Andrew Bird’s fine song

Inspired animation by Yu Morita uses a fuzzy felt medium to interpret Andrew Bird’s song “Eyeoneye”.

Share

Ok Go, and arts group Syyn Labs, build the most stupendous and creative Rube Goldberg machine ever and synch its “performance” to a great song.

The band, OK Go, and an LA based arts and technology collective, Syyn Labs, collaborate and build the most gigantic and elaborate Rube Goldberg machine I’ve ever seen or imagined. This is quite a fascinating and visually arresting music video.

The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs over the course of several months.
