Ian Cheng's amazing video for Liars' Brats deconstructs animation in a wonderful and slightly creepy fashion in the manner of CGI-deconstruction pioneers David O'Reilly and David Lewondowski. Looney Tunes' devotees will love the easily identifiable storyline and character interplay... - and then he slaps in Liars, who are always up for it.

Ian says: "For "Brats", I used a familiar animated narrative - hapless hunter vs. terroristic rabbit- as a format to grow a garden of signature motions. This collection of motions becomes material to recompose a new non-narrative choreography that animates the bodies of Liars. The Brats video documents this entropic haunting- from the ingredients of familiar meaning arises the terror of reckless non-meaning. A dog wanders indifferently through the animation, true to its nature."
