Clemens Kogler - Herr bar (2007)
“it's well known that, on the whole, the human body looks quite amusing. but toes lips or calves appear even stranger when you are lining them up as a collage in the shape of animals, plants or even entire landscapes.” (kira stachowitsch) experimental video where every single piece of graphic is made out of scans of human body parts. a journey through meaty landscapes and architecture. a quest for human warmth and imperfection in a world dominated by rigid digital media. this video originally came to life as an music video for the track “herr bar” by chris clark (warprecords).
