   03 Sep 00:00:12  |  ThisIsColossal

Circulatory Systems,” a mesmerizing short film by Worldgrapher and the Hong Kong-based production company Visual Suspect, deftly compares major highways to human arteries and veins. Made by simply cropping and duplicating real footage, the dizzying video twists and turns through complex interchanges that are repeated in patterns and emblazoned with headlights and the city’s glow.

   30 Aug 00:00:19  |  ThisIsColossal

In her animated short Towels, Prawta Annez explores her frustration and concern with global tensions as a rollicking ocean-side battle for prime towel space.

   29 Aug 00:00:05  |  ThisIsColossal
