Rainbow Narcosis

source: jonmonaghan

Rainbow Narcosis is a 9 minute 3D animation following a headless lamb through a series of otherworldly environments. With a visual style that shifts between photo-realism and video games, the work highlights the increasing disconnect between whats real and whats mediated. From the Palais Garnier to a modernist loft, the subject matter references wealth and power, while maintaining an unsettling ambiguity.
