Adult Swim + Encyclopedia Pictura + Dirty Projectors = “Earth Crisis”
In one of the most surprising (and striking) collaborations of 2020, Encyclopedia Pictura director Isaiah Saxon conjures a magical and melancholy tale for Adult Swim anchored on music from Brooklyn indie rock band Dirty Projectors.
Encyclopedia Pictura has featured prominently in Stash over the years with their video for Panda Bear “Boys Latin” gracing the cover of issue 110.
As for proof of Adult Swim’s commitment to visual experimentation and support for artistic risk-takers, you only need to watch a few of the short films from their eclectic Smalls series.
