Souvenir de Chine by Körner Union

Sorry to post two videos in a row, a personal pet peeve, but this video is so weird and wonderful I have to. It was created by the Swiss group Körner Union, and features a ton of mirrors and lots of fuzzy and feathered little friends. The idea is simple, set up two mirros at an angle, throw a bunch of animals in it, tape it from above so it looks like a kaelidescope, and voila! Instant awesome art.

My favorite part comes in around the 2 minute mark when they throw in the parakeets, which in turn makes the mice scramble like crazy. A very random video, but beautiful and creative nonetheless.
