The Magnificent Holy Chicken: A Miraculous Creator of Life and Music

The Magnificent Holy Chicken: A Miraculous Creator of Life and Music

The Holy Chicken of Life & Music is an award-winning three-minute experimental animated short film, a surrealistic burst of quirky insanity directed by Greek filmmakers Christos Lefakis and Yannis Konstantinidis.  The film tells the story of the last living magnificent double-headed digital rooster, a Holy Chicken hailed by some as the only hope for the restoration of the Life Cycle.  The Glorious  Beast possesses the miraculous talent to create Life and Music, and as a result the Holy Chicken is both worshiped and exploited, in a tale of love and regret, art and science, Life and Opera.

Spin Cycle: The Magic of Wonder Bread

Jeff Koons: Wonder Bread

I recently posted an article about Jeff Scher’s experimental short film Still Loaf with Guitar. Spin Cycle is a companion piece; both are earlier films in the series of works illustrating his long-term creative fascination with the illusion of motion via animation. Exploiting the visually symbolic nature of white bread, Scher created a panorama of color and optical effects in both of the films.

Comprised of 78 paintings on paper, Spin Cycle features a single slice of Wonder Bread rotating in limbo. As the film advances, Scher adds layers of paint and collage to the individual frames and then re-photographs them. The result is a film that blooms with the successive additions of color and texture until the image evolves into a dense and challenging cinematic experience.
