More work by Collecting California artist Allison Schulnik

Allison Schulnik is one of the artists featured in the Museum's current exhibition Collecting California: Selections from Laguna Art Museum.

Video: Grizzly Bear: "Ready, Able"

You'll never look at Gumby the same way again 'Video:

Setting: A bucolic, woodsy landscape. Characters: Emotionally expressive claymation blob things. Plot: Something about being sucked up into some sort of polygonal spaceship. This is a weird one, folks!

Director and artist Allison Schulnik's video for Grizzly Bear's "Ready, Able" is online now, and its mesmerizing and hard-to-place sadness almost makes the all-out creepiness of Patrick Daughters' "Two Weeks" clip look like a picnic at the beach.

Why is that one blob thing melting? Why are those faces turning inside out? And why do I get so depressed watching all of it?

View the video.
