Great to see Wangechi Mutu on a roll.  After the beautiful video she directed for Pegasus Warning, we now see her latest work, a collaboration with singer Santigold for the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.

The animation is described as follows:

The 8-minute video, “The End of eating Everything,” marks the journey of a flying, planet-like creature navigating a bleak skyscape. This “sick planet” creature is lost in a polluted atmosphere, without grounding or roots, led by hunger towards its own destruction. The animation’s audio, also created by Mutu, fuses industrial and organic sounds.

“The End of eating Everything” was commissioned by the Nasher Museum as part of the new exhibition “Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey,” the first survey in the United States for this internationally renowned, multidisciplinary artist, and her most comprehensive and innovative show yet. “The End of eating Everything” can be viewed in full, in person, at the Nasher Museum through July 21, 2013. This version is also shared at http://nasher.duke.edu/mutu/art.php.

First, check out a three-minute excerpt of the video:

And here’s a conversation between Wangechi and Santi talking about their collaboration:

Congrats, Wangechi!
