Video Artist Greg Barth Visualizes Today's Society with 'Essays on Reality'

1/25/2013 9:38 AM Eastern

Greg Barth's Essays on Reality is a series of short films that visualizes some of today's most topical issues: ranging from the Arab Spring to pornography. Says Barth, "I want to express how I relate to our humanity. Its themes, situations, cultures, events. Reading the news regularly, an inspiring event would often spark a quirky visual interpretation of it in my mind, a caricature of its existence."

Barth uses no CGI to create his pieces, relying on old-fashioned stop-motion or camera tricks. Watch some of his work below and read more from him here on Cool Hunting.
