Vid Picks of the Week: The YouTube Play Biennial, Part 1
(Above) Meet the YouTube Play Jury: Takashi Murakami
Earlier this year, YouTube joined forces with the Guggenheim Museum to create YouTube Play, a Biennial of Creative Video. The first-of-its-kind Biennial aims to unearth and showcase the very best creative video from around the world.
Artists were called to submit their works by June and a "shortlist" of 200 curated videos was posted on YouTube last week. We stayed up and watched all 200 videos so you wouldn't have to. Without further ado, we present our 10 favorite YouTube Play videos.
Part 1, #s 10-6 today, after the jump. (5-1 tomorrow)
10. A Braided Beaded Balls Suit
London textile artists Dana Haim and Learke Hooge Andersen were inspired by glowing deep-sea creatures and the human body to create this, one of the most visually stunning videos on YouTube.
