An serene emptiness, an forgotten place in the remote indian Thar desert where the Aghori (priest) dedicate himself to meditation.
Moving in a trance flipping from reality to the unconscious worlds becomming a
transcendence state of being that has overcome the limitations of physical existence.

Presenting my animation inspired by the timeless Radiohead album, ‘Amnesiac’. Set to the track ‘You and Whose Army?’
I’ve worked on personal/concept album artwork inspired by the band before. I returned to the subject but to explore possibilities with motion. Dark and brooding, I loved crafting my own take on a classic. They defy convention and prove brilliant inspiration for my more experimental pieces. It’s powerful music, I wanted my work to match the tone. Amnesiac’s existing cover art is a weeping minotaur from greek mythology, it triggered idea’s for a few of the scenes. It’s a set of experiments, it began life as a music video and grew into what now is essentially a show reel for my darker work.
Probably my my most ambitious solo work to date. Done in spare time I covered all aspects of this project and ‘donned many hats’. I wanted to produce an animation in it’s entirety. Editing, directing, 3D, graphics, sculpting and working with sound and camera moves.
