Recently I had the pleasure to meet with local artist Saben Kane. Along with two other artists, he rented a storefront downtown Wilmington for one month to exhibit their work in. After speaking with Kane further, it turns out that we share similar views on art, and how modern media has become integral in its evolution.
When I visited his website, at www.saben.tv, I found a wonderful example of this. More specifically, he has created a short film inspired by anime. This short is demonstrative of how anime and gaming subculture continues to influence artists of my generation.
The short itself features stop motion animation of Lain and Armitage, with voices from other anime. It's quite a brilliant piece of work, and I encourage you to go right now and donate a few minutes of your time to Fata Morgana.
