Civilization

I can't say I begin to understand this video from Marco Brambilla, but the sheer scope and intricacy of it takes my breath away.
This interpretation of Dante’s Divine Comedy is precisely the experience video artist Marco Brambilla (director of Demolition Man) and Toronto-based studio Crush were striving for in Civilization, a video mural created for the new Standard hotel in New York City.

The entire mural uses over 400 video sources, including samples from several films—something Brambilla is well-known for in his work. This particular project came with some special technical challenges, though.

THAT is a work of art.

A wonderful case for the relaxation of copyright for transformative sampling in art.

I am a movie whore and i only recognized a handful of the source material.
