Bendito Machines

by Rachel Gertz

Bendito Machine IV - Fuel the Machines from Zumbakamera on Vimeo.

Jossie Malis makes stunning videos that feel like Indonesian shadow theatre while telling the demise of a simple human-like species. The species’ own love of machines earns its demise every time. This film IV (above) is my favourite.

Malis has created several of these almost-architectural moving marvels. He also recently launched a Kickstarter campaign so he can finish the set of twelve.

Check out the rest of the videos here, and listen to Sxip Shiley. He sets the ominous musical tone for the videos.
