two of the most intriguing videos I found via the web this weekend are

BCC by motomichi nakamura -----> http://www.motomichi.com/bcc/bcc_window.html

and

SUPERSMILE by YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES ------> http://www.yhchang.com/SUPER_SMILE.html

BCC is an interface of web objects resembling arms/hands/fists each links to an animation that reflects upon the disaffection of the contemporary techie/nerdly user. The CSR (customer service rep), in bondage gear monotonously supplying rote answers, struck me as completely fuckingly fascinatingly appropriate reflection of the lives of those poor bastards. Technically the film is beautiful in it's direct and graphic form. This only further compliments the mood and story of disaffection and angst. Bad ass shit!


SUPERSMILE is also a direct graphic beauty but, that elegant simplicity is its' only relation to the former. It is a peppy stream of consciousness that will make you guffaw out loud "what the fuck!!". I loved the soundtrack and stayed through the entire animation; I had to find out how it ended!
