These videos of rubber humans are good?

Is it crude of me to say I know the sound of dozens of rubber bodies slapping against each other as they collapse in a boneless pile on the floor? That flesh, when stacked up against more flesh will create a noise similar to that of a foot slowly being pulled out of very wet mud?

These are the questions raised by the work of Albert Omoss, a computational artist who creates software and uses it to make visual art. A recurring element in his work is these naked, squishy human bodies. The rubber people can be stacked into impossibly straight columns, or tangled in a spidery, pulsing mass of skin and Speedos.


Maybe, while watching these videos, you'll be struck with the desire to reach out and dig your hands deep into the elastic, vaguely human forms in front of you. But you can't do this; all you can do is watch, on a loop, as the rubber people drop from the sky and gather together with no resistance, over and over again.
