The Corruption Of Maya Deren
This is a weird one. The best I can do is tell you what I think it is. The actual title of the above embedded video is CORRUPT.Maya.Deren by an entity called Videogramo. What I believe it is, is a corrupted or digitally manipulated version of Maya Deren‘s classic underground film Meshes of the Afternoon. However, the original film is completely unintelligible and what we have is a hypnotic swirl of digital blurs, squares and flashes of light.
Although it’s virtually impossible to tell what we’re actually looking at, I believe through certain sound cues — the sound doesn’t kick in until a few minutes in — that this is Meshes of the Afternoon. But, the soundtrack to the original film by Teiji Ito doesn’t match up exactly as I believe the audio has been as corrupted as the video, so I can’t say for certain.
I also don’t know anything about the videomaker Videogramo. However, I do suggest checking out his/her/their official website as it features a very funky, vector-ish design and lots of groovy gif animations that you’ll mistake for Flash graphics. Plus, Videogramo has lots more videos on Vimeo to watch.
