All kinds of fun. Prolific German/New Zealandish artist The Rainbowmonkey unleashes Google Image Search on to Okyo, to spectacular effect.

This was basically my first attempt at motion-tracking. Heaps of masks made out of random google images.

Some inaccurate tracking and rough motion do show the piece up as a reasonably fast exercise, but I think the lack of motion smoothing fits well with the cut and paste aesthetic. Rough edges aside, the style is spot on for the music, and there are some lovely compositing and effects touches which compliment the track perfectly.

    nice stuff! good digital dada!

    once again, the creepiest mask? the clown, of course! (the baby doll mask with Quay-Brothers-overtones earns a solid second place)
