ANIMATION BREAKDOWN: "Beyond The Mind's Eye": A Tribute (feat. PBDY, Matthewdavid & special guest!)

“A surreal voyage bridging the gap between reality and imagination. Travel through the inner depths of the human psyche to the outer reaches of the universe. ‘Beyond’ explores worlds that may exist in alternate dimensions — or only in the minds of the world’s leading computer animators.”

Groundbreaking in both its capacity to soothe the savage, ponytailed beast and in its presentation of the most cutting-edge CGI created up to that point, the Mind’s Eye quadrology of ‘90s home video “albums” represent as big of a turning point as Jurassic Park, Terminator 2 or The Lawnmower Man in the way we relate to computer animation onscreen. These compilations are a vast, rippling pool of flowing, morphing dreamscapes, featuring excerpts from both big-name product and underground artists — and, these days, viewing them can simultaneously take you outside of time in a psychedelic sense, and directly to a time when these works represented the apex of digital achivement. For this special tribute show, we’re teaming up our friends PBDY, Matthewdavid & a special guest — all artists on the L.A.-based record label Brainfeeder (also home to Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus and so many more) to give you a guided tour through the most blissed-out moments in the Mind’s Eye canon.
