Wild Beasts – Surreal Music Video Created Using the Droste Effect

Watch a surreal and trippy music video for the song ‘Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants’, the second single from the British band Wild Beasts debut album -  Limbo Panto.

The visual effect in the video is known as the ‘Droste Effect’, a technique pioneered by graphic artist and illustrator M.C. Droste. The directors of the video, OneInThree, were able to adapt the technique  and apply it to the video.

Visit this huge Flickr gallery to see some cool imagery created using the technique.
