    What a trip.

    That’s a buttload of Bouguereau!

  • Yhusch Furjix

    This is great! I couldn’t help myself from wanting to see a 2nd version with Terry Gilliam style animations.

  • Maya Uma

    I don’t agree with the end! Otherwise magnificent technique, very inspiring

    Why does the guy have to bring up the whole “look at me, I dropped acid in the MoMA!” bit?

  • Ione

    Hypnotic. Thank you.

  • Marie Godfrey

    Awesome – made me realise how much, and how little, is captured in paintings and photographs. One minute movement makes a whole lot of difference. Amazing!

  • Rhyli
