Outer Osmo Ghost Mode

1 December 2012

Earlier this month L.A’s Museum of Contemporary Art teased us with their avatar futuristic animated piece “Outer Osmo Ghost Mode”, something that looked like one of Disney’s 80s underground projects, a week after we finally have the 10min piece…

The story is that of Elda and Dell Banner, two online avatars stuck in the home map of a proto-virtual internet exploration program, Osmo. Unfortunately they’ve been left behind in this ghost world by their physical creators, an actual married couple.

A project pushed by MOCAtv and Gleam House is the perfect expression of two artists obsessed with psychedelia… on one side our admired Alan Palomo (from Neon Indian) who had to add that futuristic-but-outdated score; and on the other animtator Johnny Woods who is no stranger to these parallel universes, nor Alan’s own psyche. A project worth saving in your datadrives.
