So beautiful and strange. I'd love to see his works in person, they seem so alive even on video. Awesome find, twoleftfeet.

(Cellular) Automata have such different meanings for me. This was a delight, nonetheless. Cheers.

What Blazecock said; this is really neat, but in an orange-juice-when-you're-expecting-milk sort of way. Heh.

Thanks for the post.

I wonder if of Frank fame and mr. Armstrong are familiar with each other.

Woodring makes, well, I guess it's called "comics", though don't feel like reading regular comics any more than reading Daniel Clowes' stuff does. Sometimes he makes up really nice automata and paints them.

Oh! HTML / Live Preview / Safari ate my TXT, sorry about that. What I meant to say was:

I wonder if Jim Woodring of Frank fame and mr. Armstrong are familiar with each other.

One of my undergraduate art professors was Jack Girard, who is interviewed in the video. I first saw Steve's work as an undergraduate as he and Jack would frequently show together.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Steve Armstrong as he came to my current school to hear a guest lecturer on contemporary art. We went to dinner afterward and he and his wife were both very pleasant and interesting people to speak to. Thanks for the video!
