Some Video Art Fo Yo Ass

So, I came across this video on the Fader [insert omnious Fader echo] blog--> This shit is for the tru art geeks. Its called "Civilization" by Marco Brambilla. I would keep typing but here's what Fader had to say about it to save me some energy:

"The Standard NYC opened a couple of months ago and it’s a gorgeous hotel, a feat of architecture and ideation. Its attention to indulgently avant-garde detail is fully embodied in Marco Brambilla’s “Civilization,” an ominous video installation depicting the long march of mankind towards something like sci-fi purgatory. It’s transfixing and freaky just watching it in an office chair, but when you consider this thing is airing INSIDE the elevators, you might want to A. book a penthouse room so you can watch the whole marvelous thing or B. hope and pray you don’t have any kind of height/closed spaces phobia this thing might trigger. Seems worth checking it out in its natural habitat, though–the sensation of motion with the churning pyres of the piece will probably amp the godliness factor like 900x."
