Cirque Obscure

The creator of Cirque Obscure recently shared his puppetry work with me, and these creatures are right at home here on SWS. One look at this, and I was sold:

All of these puppets have a distinct darkness about them; a sense of emptiness, melancholy…they are the misunderstood and the damned.

The aesthetic reminds me slightly of Tool’s “Sober” video (one of my all time favorites), which along with NIN’s “Closer” helped open me up in my early teens to dimensions of dark surrealism beyond what I had seen as a horror-obsessed child.

Watch the trailer for the latest release. I can’t wait to see the complete film:
