The Quays’ familiar puppet animation is here enhanced by the use of animated iron filings, which suggest the rapid formation of frost over every surface, the swaying of the individual particles suggesting a hefty buffeting by a keen, piercing wind.
We invite you to peer through the peephole into the Gothic and disjointed universe of the Quay Brothers’s own strange imaginings. In this dark, two-minute micro-short, the vivid textures of metal filings, animated by the force of a magnet, fuel a strange doll’s breakfast. Heady and evocative.
