Digitally Organic Monochrome Horses

Why are artistic fads -- that are so clearly fads -- sometimes so intellectually satisfying, even in retrospect? Is it that we realize the genius of predecessors after their work has seen the public light?

WeWereMonkeys: Land of Talk - It's Okay from WeWereMonkeys on Vimeo.

This is the new Land of Talk video by WEWEREMONKEYS. It's a really beautiful take on this three way juxtaposition of nature, digital media, and chemical aesthetic of old-school, monochrome photography. It's ironic! kind of.

It is reminiscent of painter Michael Zavros's 2006 series of monochrome horses.

It is justification for the belief that horses are the quintessential representatives
of everything that is organic.

This is The Joy Division's 1988 video for atmosphere. It's timeliness is scary.
