That would take SO LONG to DO! I just spent like two hours painting a tree that's taller than me and I thought that was annoyingly time consuming. Heck simply painting a room in a house takes such a long time - this person not only painted a whole wall of a building - they painted it multiple times and multiple buildings! Gads! This must have taken like...a year at least.

Thanks for posting it, Thorn!

I'm amazed!

I once saw a presentation about "Animaatiokone: an installation for creating clay animation" by Perttu Hämäläinen. They made a small installation which allowed movie theatre visitors to make stop motion clay animation while waiting for their movie to start. The authors collected a lot of little amateur animations and run some statistics on them.

I remembered this because they observed that majority of all the animations repeat one plot over and over - a new character comes, kills the previous character (typically by devouring it), walks a bit around the scene and metamorphoses into something else. Then the animator runs out of time, just to set up the scene for somebody who will do the exact same thing.

That's what this animation reminds me of. It plays the obvious first idea over and over and OVER. Are there papers on the wall? Uhh... let's eat them. Err... how? Well, chameleon tongue of course. WHAT ELSE? If you tire of walking, well.. duhhh, you go on puking. This can be done horizontally and vertically, on the wall, but also on the ground! What is inside a skull? A walking brain. WHAT ELSE? Oh yes, bugs, of course you can never omit the bugs, right? And everybody dies, and there are skulls. If you run out of ideas, put death in. Death is profound and artistic.

If you ever think again that everything can be considered art, have a look at this video. It is a perfect counterexample.
