By The Crimson Bands of Cyttorak

Posted January 14, 2012

Wasn’t able to dig up a lot of information about this piece of video art from 1978. The directors names are Tom DeFanti and Barbara Sykes and you can check out the Vimeo posting for full credits here. I definitely have a weak spot for video work of this nature and am always amazed at how difficult it is for modern video artists to fake this aesthetic. This video is walking a fine line between something psychedelic and something trying very hard to be modern. Great score as well.

    The title of this video is an obscure reference to a Marvel comics character. That in an of itself is cool, but the visuals themselves are brilliant
