Daniel Marciniak’s “dao” Is a Heavy Dose of Downtempo

Drawn from the character 道–”the road connecting Heaven and Earth”–of Taoism fame, Polish animator Daniel Marciniak created the animation dao to depict a meandering, ethereal path of its own. Set to the track “Hole” by Jakub Nox Ambroziak and Kinta, a song reminiscent of Portishead-style trip hop with a slight speedup, the video’s own atmospherics are well-crafted as Marciniak uses repeated motions and a minimal color palette to craft the clip’s (and thus the viewer’s) mood. When you can’t exactly describe the feeling of sitting at home while listening to music in a daydreamy haze, point to this clip.
