Animation Spotlight: Peripetics

Bursting hearts, crumbling houses, or why catastrophe never looked this good.

Today’s short-and-sweet is just that: Peripetics, a brilliant piece of motion art to which no verbal description does justice. So all we’ll offer is a short contextual introduction, straight from the makers — innovative CG studio Zeitguised.

Zeitguised made a piece in six acts for the opening exhibition at the Zirkel Gallery. It entails six imaginations of disoriented systems that take a catastrophic turn, including the evolution of educational plant-body-machine models and liquid building materials.

There’s something incredibly powerful about conveying doom through pure aesthetic, technical and conceptual magnificence — if the Apocalypse looks anything like this, we may just stick around and watch.

Go ahead, gawk.
