  Never heard of the guy before but he seems to be good at what he does, so.

Fallen art:


I like the 2nd one best

  very good at what he does I'd say...although I can't say I fully understand his message, especially in the second animation clip. But the images and art are outstanding. Perhaps I'm too conditioned to look for meaning, and don't know how to appreciate something soley for it's mood and visual imagery.

  I'm not sure about Katedra (The Cathedral?) but Fallen Art appears to be a piece filled with criticism about the whole process of Military and War.

No matter what they are beautiful.

  I figure the first is about how the average grunt gets a medal and follows orders that he gets intimidated into and that's it, even though he knows it'll lead to certain death and he's seen it happen right in front of him (think of the bangalore squads on d-day where you had numbers 1->15 or something going one at a time every time the first guy got shot to drag the bangalore a little further).

The guy taking the picture to me symbolises some kind of apparatsjik who choses to ignore what's going on, and the dancing fat guy would be "the people", who enjoy seeing the suffering and soldiers twisting and dancing but get tired of them easily so they need new soldiers to perform when they've grown tired of the current one. And they are readily provided for.

Intriguing to say the least.

I think the second one is about how people end up in places they shouldn't be and then all of a sudden are in over their head and get stuck into the situation they've created. But also, the smiles of the figures on the walls probably mean some sort of melancholy to the time when those people were still idealistic and thought they could change the world, and they see the new guy thinking he'll uncover something, while all that happens is that he gets incorporated into some monumental construction that bridges into space without going somewhere forseeable.

That's what I think at least

  Who ever does these has way too much time on their hands.

But I will say, they are great. :)
