“1923 aka Heaven is one of two animation loops directed by Max Hattler, inspired by the work of French outsider artist Augustin Lesage. 1923 is based on Lesage’s painting ‘A symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World’ from 1923.”
If we ever get time travel sorted out it’d be wonderful to go back to the 1920s and show Mr. Lesage what kind of art we’re making in the 21st century. I’d imagine he properly flip out.
Max also created a companion piece – 1925 aka Hell – that you might be interested in seeing as well. Oh, and before I forget…PROTIP: After you click play, right-click (or control+click if you are using a single-button mouse on a Mac) inside the video and select ‘Turn Loop ON’ for an infinite journey. Enjoy!
