Young Experimental Animation student Skyler Brown’s music video for musician Brian Parkhurst’s song “Ultrasalient” is a hypnotic visual treat. Check it out after the jump!
This work by *Brown* is interesting enough, but what really caught our attention was the materials he used in creating it. What looked like an animation completely rendered digitally was actually done with the use of commonly-used and easily-accessible items such as flashlights, salt, charcoal, acrylic paint, food dye, milk, water, ink, and even 35mm film!
I didn’t make much of an effort to limit the materials themselves, but I did try to aesthetically restrict them to only a couple distinct visual styles for the purpose of consistency and rhythmic repetition – namely, there’s the fast colorful neon stuff and the slower monochromatic ‘space’ stuff (and a few elements in between). That way there’s something of an overall visual consistency despite the fact that the images themselves are changing literally every few frames.
We’re still curious as to how he incorporated all these items cohesively, but in the meantime, join us as we marvel at Brown’s final output for “Ultrasalient” by *Parkhurst*.

Film swaps often produce the most exciting photographs. More than physically exchanging rolls, it is a collaboration of ideas and stories between two people who share the same love for experimental photography.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
The young photographer friends set out to America’s West to reconnect with nature. It all began as an individual documentation of the world around them and organically formed into a collaborative project over the course of their trip. The result is a self-published art book that explores the relationship between nature and their bodies.
