WATCH THIS: Distorted times (Verknipte tijden)

on Friday, Dec. 21st

I don’t like recycling the Vimeo Staff Picks– not that they don’t have good taste, but what’s the point? Every so often there’s one that I get so excited about I just have to share. In this case it’s Verknipte tijden / Distorted times by Dutch filmmaker Gideon van der Stelt. This beautiful piece of work reminds me of one of my favorite pieces of performance art, Fleur Elise Noble’s 2 Dimensional Life of Her.

Which meant I couldn’t help myself.
