Luke Bather - 25th July 2017

Jon Emmony created a hideous, pulsating thing of beauty for The Horrors.

Wiry synapses fire in a blue expanse before the insect-like metamorphosis begins to take over. This 3D animation shakes, writhes and pulses into some truly visceral looking places, yet keeps a gorgeous colour palette in its armory at all times. Like an acid-laced journey through the mind of HR Giger and at least subconsciously informed by Chris Cunningham's work with The Horrors many years back. Just as unsettling, but with a whole new set of weaponry.
