Stroll through A Garden of Parallel Paths

Mind-bending video art made from the ordinary.

This gorgeous, hypnotic video art by Daniel Crooks, a New Zealand visual artist, is a casual stroll through other dimensions. Taking ordinary urban settings, Crooks pushes simple procedural visual effects to their limit, bending space and time in the process. The various environments in A Garden of Parallel Paths have the thinness of paper, as the camera passes each one, as if in looking through a hallway. Crooks’ work is a great reminder that, sometimes, the simplest tricks can be the most impressive ones.

This week’s Frandoms are by Jeffrey Zablotny, director at Circle Productions.
