I'm not an artist of any kind, but I thought some of you might have some discussion to share about the Mind's Eye series from the 90s.

I used to see these shorts on YTV in Canada as a child between shows. They introduced me to surrealism, and I have extremely vivid memoreis of watching them. Many I actually thought were dreams I had, but it turns out they were actual childhood memories I had of creepy early 90s CGI. Rewatching these as an adult was a crazy experience.

Cool stuff.

Pretty much the exact reason I enjoyed Xavier Renegade Angel. Noice.

You forgot my favourite. Gate To The Mind's eye, with music by Thomas Dolby.

I loved these as a child. Really got me interested in CGI. Of course I only had an Amiga but dreamed of SGI machines. But most of these seem to predate even SGI. So what did they use? Symbolics?

Fuck.

I just grew a mullet watching these.

Honestly they're not all that good.
The animation is pretty outdated, and everything presented can be easily imagined.
Hardly "beyond the mind's eye."
It seems like people testing the limits of cg before realism was even possible.

seem like you are not aware of the limits of 80s hardware and software

I think I still got the movie cd release of this

They were a "best of" student demo reels for various animation schools in the 80s. Computer animation students would submit their demo reel and the company would pick the best of the bunch and make a compilation out of them.

If you got to see these in the era when they were current it was pretty awesome.

I remember watching Imaginaria quite a bit as a child, which used a lot of the clips from it with mostly original music.

>>I have no understanding of the use of the word aesthetics.
