VIDEO: Apocalypse Rhyme – A Typographical Poem
This short work from British filmmaker, artist and animator Oliver Harrison is powerful – and nominated for Best Motion Graphics in the 2014 British Animation Awards. Harrison describes it as “a black and white, kaleidoscopic, multi-layered, hyper-kinetic typographical poem.”
Using the letters of the word APOCALYPSE, Harrison explores areas of life that have been eroded by recent events: war, the degradation of the environment, the rise of corporate greed. The film suggests a quiet “apocalypse” has already occurred, affecting all of us.
