Allison Schulnik just released Mound, her latest claymation work.
Bittersweet, ghostly, melancholic creatures interact in the scene as the notes from It's raining today by Scott Walker play in the background. The result is an absolutely perfect synergy. Characters slowly fade and melt into each other, appearing and disappearing, joining and separating, combining themselves in a spooky mound.
A world in which those likely Burtonian characters seem to wander constantly looking for something, emanating a sense of loneliness and abandon that seem to find rest only within contact and fusion is what can be observed in the Allison Schulnik Mound clip. Definitely an amazing, unusual, peculiar work and I'm sure there will be a lot of buzz around it.
