Video of the Day is going arty in 2009. To get you started, here is an animation made out of close-up details of Sumi Ink Club's recent exhibition at SiteLA. The show - "Shadow Out of Time" - has moved on to Boston, but you can still catch a glimpse on the inter-webs.

Viewers are invited to tease out what themes they may, but the never-wrong Wikipedia notes that, [H. P. Lovecraft's 1936 short story] "The Shadow Out of Time" indirectly tells of the Great Race of Yith, an extraterrestrial species with the ability to travel through space and time. The Yithians accomplish this by switching bodies with hosts from the intended spatial or temporal destination. The story implies that the effect when seen from the outside is similar to spiritual possession." No relation to Los Angeles, whatsoever, right?
