“BIG BANG BIG BOOM” — BLU’s stop-motion graffiti masterpiece
Continuing with today’s Big Bang theme, we turn to a ten-minute animated video by BLU, the famous Italian street artist.
The video, called BIG BANG BIG BOOM, is a time-lapse animation of various wall-paintings and street art that traces the evolution of life against the background of (and at times incorporating) a colorful cityscape. BLU, who continues to hide his real identity, says it is an “an unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life … and how it could probably end.”
I know it’s ten minutes long, and that’s just impossible for internet viewing, but, really — watch the whole thing. The climax, beginning with the water tower scene at about eight minutes, is phenomenal.
