Some very nice gifs from Cave Exits, which features original John Also Bennett music and sound design.
Video installation by Peter Burr explores high definition low pallette pixel visual distortions in a work inspired by video games (best to watch in highest resolution as possible):
In video games, there is the concept of a dungeon that generates itself: an endlessly mutating death labyrinth. Cave Exits sets this living structure inside a 4-channel video cube. Recalling the way we interact with online media – clicking, zooming, scrolling – it turns the visual archetype of the labyrinth into a circuit board for lost, anxious feelings. From a simple shift in perspective (moving from within the constricted maze-paths to a vantage high above the spatial coil) the claustrophobic corridors become a dazzling pattern of complex artistry. Viewers are unable to process all incoming information in a single sitting, having to choose between screens if they want to sate their curiosity and learn more about the shifting structure. Unlike choosing between branches in an interactive narrative where the peripheral is an explicit set of controls, here the peripheral will be the human neck and eyes, allowing for expression beyond mere hardware.
Two bumps for Adult Swim with Peter Burr.

The theme from “Special Effect”, a live film by Peter Burr exploring “The Zone”, the site of an unnamed cataclysm in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi film Stalker. Original score by Seabat, soon to see an official OST release.

The trailer for Special Effect (a collaboration with Peter Burr).
“Video and performance artist Peter Burr presents a live television show from the future inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1971 film Stalker and its central setting of "the zone”: an off-limits place of hope and possibility rumored to make one’s deepest desires come true. Special Effect features 20 30-second original works from underground animation label Cartune Xprez, original music from Lucky Dragons and Seabat, and live performances by Burr involving laser beams and a hacked Kinect camera.
