Photographic artist from NYC. None of his work uses Photoshop, all is collaged, rephotographed, xeroxed, etc. This piece was used on Tortoise‘s fifth album, It’s All Around You.

Please note: this post was not entirely accurate, and has been clarified in the comments section. Thanks Oliver.

Some seriously amazing animation. Be patient, it really gets going about half way through. Fantastic.

If you have any further info on this, the animator, maybe a translated version, or where I can buy 10,000 copies, let me know.
