Shape Up

we see dvd!

Life gets complicated. Today it’s burpies and bottles, but tomorrow you’ll be navigating the gray areas of white lies and the birds and the bees.

Savor the innocence of infancy, where everything’s black and white, with Wee See videos.

The DVD series, created by Rolyn Barthelman (known for his groundbreaking work in vectorized video) and Dallas musician Tim DeLaughter (front man for Tripping Daisy and then The Polyphonic Spree), is part art installation, part pacifier.

The hypnotic animations are a collection of bold, graphic, black-and-white shapes that move methodically across the screen to soothing scores by DeLaughter. The shapes engage little minds, and the trippy sounds might hark back to your hazy days of college.

Without being off color.
