A post-minimal collaboration between designer Douglas Filiak and composer Joel Pickard, Nightm0ves is animation reduced to it’s most basic principles. Focused on the art of simplicity through geometric forms and analog synthesizers, the videos become a hypnotic display of looping compositions that are as much intended for a gallery wall as they are for a mobile screen.
