This is dedicated to non-photography artists. I believe you need to research the art of all disciplines to make yourself a better artist.
First artist is from the interactive web design/ animation world...
Hoogerugge is a digital Dutch artist who resides in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Hoogerugge's animations* are weird, dark, disturbing and most of all - addictive and fun! Go to his website to see more animations, installations and video of his work .
*the hyperlink is a animated series call NAILS (2002-2006) each part has a interactive role with your cursor. Either clicking or moving it around hotspots. I recommend you to explore. Then, if you want, check out the Hotel series after.
