Mind Blowing and Mind Numbing at the Same Time (video)

So yes, it’s a bit on the experimental side, but this new short film “Artificial Paradise, Inc.” by Jp Frenay is too visually stunning to be ignored. Not sure exactly what’s going on? Don’t worry, no one is, but the description Frenay gives may help a little, or not:

“an experimental film anticipating a future where a major corporation has developed an unique software, based on organic virtual reality, which holds all the lost memories of humankind. A user connects to this database of the forgotten…what is he searching for?”

Aside from incredible work in computer graphics wrapped in some vague notion of plot many post-modern video artists are notorious for, I’m not really sure what anyone is searching for in this film, but it is somehow beautiful just the same.
