Stunning Pixel Show video by HelloHikimori

Created as a personal project for the Pixel Show 2011 exhibition, 011.Pixelshow x HKI, tells the story of a pin-up model (Jil Knezevic) who enters a tattoo parlour to receive a Pixel Show 2011 tattoo.

As the film unfolds, the thoughts, feelings and actions of the twin protagonists are described onscreen using tentacle-like motion graphics and floating ID tags -- the result is beautiful, captivating and mesmering.

Commenting on the ideas behind the video, director and HelloHikimori co-founder David Ronhel told Computer Arts:

"Nathalie [Melato] wanted to do something with a tattoo artist and I wanted to do something with a pin-up, so we merged the ideas and made the tentacles as a result."
