Cloud Replace
Should a Cloud Replace a Compass? (2001, 5.5MB 2:45 min)

Joey Foreman translates the soothing, pulsating song Should a Cloud Replace a Compass? by Circulatory System wonderfully into this waving animation featuring the paintings of William Cullen Hart (Circulatory System’s lead singer).
The seductive color palette and organic shapes of the paintings lend themselves well to the synaesthetic experience that is this video.

The rhythms of the song and the speed at which we pan over the paintings recall blood flowing.
Watching with headphones has the potential to warm the extremities.
