A running list of great video art.

Weval – Someday

Weval – Someday

2019 • Páraic Mc Gloughlin

I don’t know how this video possibly came into creation. What I do know is that it is shockingly well-done and surprises me every time I watch it. You’ll be transfixed.

James Blake – Can't Believe The Way We Flow

2019 • Frank Lebon

Equal parts nostalgic and modern, a brilliant music video about love and relationships. It gets real around the :40 mark.

Aphex Twin - T69 Collapse

2018 • Nicky Smith

The top comment is “when you download an acid trip from your dealer and the .rar is corrupt”. No further commentary.

S+C+A+R+R - The Rest Of My Days

S+C+A+R+R – The Rest Of My Days

2020 • Jack Antoine Charlot

A disturbingly realistic mocap-based music video that sits neatly in the in the trough of the uncanny valley. The dance moves are pretty sweet.

Radiohead – Weird Fishes

2008 • Tobias Stretch

I always come back to this one. There’s something unsettling and beautiful about life-sized stop-motion. My only wish is that the video was higher quality.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – People-Vultures

2016 • Danny Cohen / Jason Galea

An enormous papier-mâché vulture roams the Australian wilderness and eliminates a series of enemies.
