Alongside Clinic's multi-disciplinary performance events, which aim to integrate poetry with other artistic practices, they occasionally publish books and pamphlets showcasing the best of these collaborations. Their latest anthology 'Clinic Presents: Can I Borrow A Feeling?', named after Kirk Van Houten's demo tape and painfully cringeworthy attempt at reconciling his marriage, is an impressive anthology of poetry and illustration inspired by 'The Simpsons'.

Lisa Simpson by Jack Sachs


Homer Simpson by Harriet Lee-Merrion

Fred Burdy: Forest Lights

Alone in a petrified, long dead forest, a strange creature looks for a last spark of life...


Mimi Leung: Balls

London-based animator Mimi Leung has unveiled 'Balls', an animated short inspired by athleticism, the sports-loving nature of people and... balls!


Silkie - Love Affair

This new music video for Solomon Rose, more widely known as the London Grime turned Dubstep producer Silkie, is accompanied by another flawless piece of animation from Simon Landrein!

Typical of Simon's recent style this latest video encapsulates an epic sci-fi narrative with an odd smattering of sexually suggestive imagery, all achieved with his trademarked square-framed aspect ratio, a minimal colour palette and a pared-down visual aesthetic.


The Risks Of The Everyday

Accompanied by gorgeously animated visuals from Andrew Khosravani, Jared Diamond shares what he learnt about risk and everyday life from the tribes of Papua New Guinea.

Pullitzer Prize-winner Jared Diamond discusses how insights from the lifestyles of far-removed cultures can impact the way we think about our own lives. Is it worth worrying about the risk of everyday actions like falling in the shower or tripping on the street? Each time you do these things, the risk of mishap is low, but we do them every single day. Over time, does that mean these tiny risks accumulate to become almost inevitable?


Delta Heavy - Ghost

Delta Heavy's animated music video, for their new single 'Ghost', features an endless stream of computer-based nostalgia for users of Windows operating systems.

Remember Clippit, the irritatingly chirpy paper clip that endless popped up to offer unsolicited advice on writing a letter? The video humorously follows this renowned 90's icon from contemplating suicide in the dark recesses of forgotten software, through 20 years of digital progress, before finally seeing him hack into the global network and wreaking his terrible revenge.


Earl Sweatshirt - Off Top

Earl Sweatshirt has unveiled an animated music video for his track 'Off Top', which comes from his album 'I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside'. The Ralph Bakshi inspired visuals, depicting Earl travelling through an increasingly hostile city complete with rabid dogs, masked assailants and porcine police officers, were directed by Taylor Johnson and animated by Alex Barrella, Taylor Johnson & Tara Sinn.

Hiraoka Masanobu: My New Animation

'My New Animation' is the latest mind-meltingly surreal and fluid short from Japanese animator Hiraoka Masanobu. Despite it's unimaginative title, the animation still remains as incredible as ever!


Will Blood: Book Of Bare Bones

NETWORKS - SIZQ

We first encountered the zany work of independent Japanese animator Kohei Yoshino in a music video for PACO, which featured a distinctive style of GC animation devoid of shading, lighting and outlines, focusing purely on colour, shape and movement.

This new music video, a collaboration with Osaka-based minimal dance outfit NETWORKS and their track 'SIZQ', features a similar aesthetic and a beautifully surreal narrative centered around a pair of humanoid-microorganisms. 


Dono: Tribute to Hayao Miyazaki

French animator Dono pays tribute to Hayao Miyazaki by seamlessly blending 2D animation elements spanning Miyazaki's accomplished career, including everything from the pre-Ghibli 'Castle Of Cagliostro' right up to 'The Wind Rises', alongside his own Ghibli-esque 3D environments!

It works surprisingly well as a celebration of the characters and landscapes from the beloved Japanese master, blending the varied Studio Ghibli output into one cohesive whole.


Rory Waudby-Tolley: TUSK

Rory Waudby-Trolley's 'TUSK' tells the tragic tale of a mammoth defrosted into an unrecognizable future. Forced to live like her evolved decedents... walk upright, cut her hair, wear clothes and get a job, she yearns for her ancient herd lost in a snow storm hundreds of thousands of years earlier.


Malcolm Sutherland: Deathsong

'Deathsong' by Canadian animator Malcolm Sutherland depicts the final meditative moments of a Buddhist Monk. In his vision his body begin to lose cohesion and form, he envisions reaching into a dark primordial ooze which makes his flesh wither and die, before final birthing new life in the form of a single plant seed!
