Fractured faces assemble and reassemble, singing as Franken-instruments blast through the beats in this stop-motion collaged animation. Created from images culled from magazines and newspapers, Tulipomania: Blinks First is composed of thousands of individual collages on black construction paper, held together with over sixty rolls of tape. The music video was directed and animated by musicians/filmmakers of Tulipomania, who are based in the Philadelphia area.
