Lernert and Sander

this video from lernert and sander really shouldn't make me sad. i think it is because i assign human emotion to the bunny's eyes.

i may have posted about them before. this video became viral a year or so ago, but i couldnt find any discussion of it on the blog. anyway, lernert and sander are lernert engelberts and sander plug, two dutch artists that collaborate on art projects, films and commercials. they have a very distinct aesthetic. here is a sampling of their work:

a series of short videos as part of a 2 hour documentary about revenge for VPRO television

a short for MTV europe

and my favorite: part of a new 9 part documentary series for limboland tv in which abstract artists explain their work to their parents. unfortunately, this is the only one subtitled for english, but hopefully there will be more. this is beautiful.
