Plunge yourself into the mad, mad world of Images of Edessa

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Well this is just wonderfully weird. Geoffrey Lillemon (who you may remember from this enjoyably insane look book we posted last year) has teamed up with Evan Roth for a new project called Images of Edessa. They describe it as an exploration of “the notion of worship, the Internet and identity” and it comprises two manic GIF-based videos and an oddly addictive interactive website. I’m not going to pretend I totally get the point Geoffrey and Evan are making, but hot dang did I enjoy the ride.
