Jake Fried has boggled our minds before with his additive 'animations,' a process of continuing to add to one base image and taking picture of every layer added on top. Coupled with the dissonant ambient sound treatment always present in his videos, the result is consistently unsettling. The creation of each of his retro-futurist flip books is comprised of around anywhere from 1000-1500 iterations of each painting and take around 4-5 months to complete.
Headspace was executed using ink, gouache, coffee and white out to deliver the final result while under the fine influence of musicians including Flying Lotus and Nicholas Jaar. Enjoy the trip.
