If you’re not familiar with the work of Carl Burgess then here’s the 101 – Carl Makes insanely cool 3D digital and video works in which the main inspiration is web culture. Remember those glitchy vectors that proliferated the video games of your youth? Carl loves them. And stock video and photography that you just can’t quite see the use of (why ARE all these people in suits weeping?) – he can turn that stuff into a killer music video.
Kenzo have caught on to Carl’s impressive creative prowess and commissioned him, along with collaborator Thomas Traum, to produce a promo piece for their F/W 2012 collection, which is densely packed with his trademark trademark visual styling. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a Burgess newbie this is well worth a few minutes out of your day.
