We hope you enjoyed our Lights Out video in response to the artistic creation from Jimmy Guthrie. He was given a fox’s head to decorate in response to Viral Pandas. His creation is beautiful and complex, so we wanted to make sure you got the chance to see what we see up close. Here’s a wobbly film of the inside of the eyes.
Take from it what you will.
We felt that perhaps the inside of the fox’s head represented the digital self, hidden behind the real face. The mirrors and gems are a distraction like smoke and mirrors: a dazzling, glistening, but disorientating view of the world that takes some examination to comprehend and find some truth in.
This reminds us very much of the work of Yayoi Kusama, below.
