Airy Me is a beautiful little animated video for the ethereal songstress Cuushe and animated by artist Yoko Kuno. The animation in the video is so fluid, constantly shifting and swirling like it’s a liquid, but it also supports a surprising amount of detail. At first the video seems almost slow or repetitive, but about half way through it takes a sudden surprising turn which totally grabbed me.
The story is set in a world where a insidious doctor is doing monstrous experiments on his patients. Kuno’s animation and story reminds me of the style of the late Satoshi Kon, who had similar tendencies towards the realistic yet absurd.[via Vimeo]
