A datamoshing video that operates as a kind of moving painting, Takeshi Murata‘s Monster Movie (2005) is all about color. One of our favorite video art pieces of the last decade, Monster Movie‘s colorful pools of pixels stream across the screen, blanketing clips of old-school monster flick with a chromatic intensity as brilliant as the piece itself. An exhibition of Murata’s new work is currently up at San Francisco’s Ratio 3 through June 11.

Visually the video was interesting, conceptually, I’m not so sure it delivers. It was really hard to watch.

I meant that comment to be about Murata’s video
