Xaver Xylophon & Laura Junger: Joy of Destruction

I sometimes experience fleeting moments of recklessness; you know that feeling when you’re on a bridge and you stand a bit too close to the edge, or when you’re holding something ceramic, and you think it might be fun to let go. I think we all have had those moments of morbid curiosity. Perhaps they will be satisfied by this short paper collage & stop motion animation by Xaver Xylophon and Laura Junger, which is a composition of destructive and dark moments, presented in a beautifully-naive way. Put simply, it embraces ‘the human drive to destroy and the absurd entertaining value that’s attached to it.’
