Cyriak’s Chimps on Chimps on Chimps

February 3, 2014 | Andy Cush

Cyriak, master of psychedelic, fractal animal animations, returns today with Chimpnology, a celebration of the titular furry primates. What starts as a relatively straightforward video of a bunch of monkeys dancing in suits quickly becomes characteristically grotesque, a apes sprout extra limbs upon limbs and eyes become mouths become eyes. Its all set to a wonky, vaguely jazzy electronic soundtrack that may or may not have been influenced by the animator’s work with Flying Lotus. Watch it above.
