Subprime by Mike Winkelmann

subprime from beeple on Vimeo.

This two and a half minute stop-motion animation takes you back to the excessive building during the realestate boom to the eventual crash of the housing market.

“The video was meant to illustrate the cyclical nature of the economy,” explains Winkelmann, “which at its root is fueled by an insatiable push for ‘more, bigger, better,’ until it becomes no longer sustainable, and the bubble bursts—as we have recently seen.”

Mike Winkelmann, aka Beeple will be showing his film Simple Extraction at the Dead/Live Video Festival as part of the Boston Cyber Arts Festival May 2nd at the Massachusets College of Art.

  6. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the reviews that this is working for you as well.
