i went to visit my good pal David O'Reilly in berlintown a little while ago, and while i was there we started to make this. The project was motivated by a show put on by the fine men who run ItsNiceThat called 'if you could collaborate', which took place this past weekend in London. The idea behind the show was to pick someone you hadn't worked with and work on something together. When the show was launched, David and me hadn't done the u2 video yet, so it was born honestly enough.
Anyway, the result is something we're both really happy with. The brunt of the workload turned out to be on David. I was in on the conceptualizing of the thing, sort of the visual rules and value setups and stuff and then designing the elements, and David took it from there.
since it was made to be shown in a gallery, it's meant to be played on a loop (you can do this if you follow the vimeo link).
here's some of the stuff that got generated for it (not really meant as illustrations on their own, just sort of figuring out things):
also, i'm a day late in posting about this cause i was away. thanks very much to cartoonbrew and motionographer and everyone else who has passed it on.
