Another masterpiece by Cyriak...who has never taken LSD.

There's an element of humour in everything that Cyriak does but this one had more so than usual - or at least it was more obvious. Certainly less nightmarish than much of his work. His oeuvre is not my cup of tea but there's no denying that he has unique vision and remarkable talent.

Yea, it's got the music and the tessellating models, but you can't really call it a Cyriak video without fractally recursive body horror can you?

His oeuvre is my cup of tea.

Maybe he can do one with oeuvres and cups of tea.

Cups of tea made out of cups of tea, the whole agglomeration merrily bouncing along a trail, intermittently splitting into more cups of tea made out of cups of tea, or sending up stalks made of cups of tea upon which cups of tea made of cups of tea grow.

Eventually a hand made of cups of tea appears, lifts up a cup of tea made of cups of tea, and tilts it. Kettles pour out.

That was excellent. I think one reason Cyriak never gets old for me is that even when it's grotesque body-horror, it always has a sense of fun. It's just so happy.

No spidercows in this one, but delightful nonetheless. A new Cyriak is always pleasant interesting.

I somehow managed to post this comment in the previous thread. Hope I didn't leave anyone wildly confused.

Certainly less nightmarish than much of his work. My thought too; also more of an M. C. Escher vibe. Very cool as always; can’t wait to show my daughter.

I don't know, man; it's kind of hard to beat RIP, his tribute to Ub Iwerks.

In these days of modern times, it's refreshing to find something that's less disturbing than you expected.

Don't miss Cyriak's new novel, Horse Destroys the Universe. It's delightful.
