Two from Max Hattler: 1923 aka Heaven & 1925 aka Hell

David Knight - 26th Mar 2010

After his tour visuals for Basement Jaxx and the mesmerizing Aanaatt for Japanese electronica artist Jemapur, experimental animator Max Hattler's latest work is this remarkable pair of films - or animation loops - inspired by the work of French outsider artist Augustin Lesage.

After his tour visuals for <a href="http://www.promonews.tv/2009/07/06/basement-jaxx-wheres-your-head-at-visuals-by-max-hattler/" target="_blank">Basement Jaxx</a> and the mesmerizing <a href="http://www.maxhattler.com/aanaatt/" target="_blank">Aanaatt</a> for Japanese electronica artist Jemapur, experimental animator Max Hattler's latest work is this remarkable pair of films - or animation loops - inspired by the work of French outsider artist Augustin Lesage. Both films, 1923 (aka Heaven) and 1925 (aka Hell), were inspired by paintings by Lesage created in those years with the same name - A Symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World - and were created with the help of CG students at the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark over a mere five day period in February this year. In 1923, Max has refashioned the Lesage <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/14029976@N08/2051112750/sizes/o/" target="_blank">painting</a> as a stunning, futuristic metropolis, composed of countless separate moving elements. It is beautiful and hypnotic, and as one reviewer has already noted, like Las Vegas would be if it was pretty... 1925 aka Hell is a much darker proposition, darker in fact than the infinitely detailed Arabic style of the original <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/14029976@N08/2051112756/sizes/o/" target="_blank">painting</a>, and faintly disturbing sound design by Adrian Dexter. But its just as compelling and hypnotic, and like 1923 can be set to loop indefinitely... There's an interview with Max Hattler about the making of both the films at <a href="http://motionographer.com/2010/03/16/max-hattlers-1923-and-1925/" target="_blank">Motionographer</a>, and Max will also be featured in a one-person show at <a href="http://lumeneclipse.com/" target="_blank">Lumen Eclipse</a> starting April 1st.
