KRIS YOUNG – Sense and Nonsense

Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

KRIS YOUNG: Sense and Nonsense - MPEG-4 clip
The origin of this project came from linguist, philosopher, political activist, and author Noam Chomsky’s statement: “Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.” Chomsky chose this sentence as an example of a grammatically correct statement that meant nothing logical.

After some research, illustrator and motion artist Kris Young came across a work who commented on that sentence: “Why is this nice bit of poetic imagery cited by its author as a quintessentially meaningless sentence?”

So, he took his own turn at this statement by merging word, image, and sound into Sense and Nonsense. The notes from Michelangelo, by my beloved Astor Piazzolla, complete the work.

Kristopher Young studied graphic design from Appalachian State University and motion graphics from Savannah College of Art and Design. He’s a Senior Motion Graphic Artist for TOKYOPOP Digital and also freelance, always looking for new ways of taking flight.

Questo progetto ha origine da una frase del linguista, filosofo, attivista politico ed autore Noam Chomsky: “Verdi idee senza colore dormono furiosamente.” Chomsky scelse questa frase come esempio di peiodo grammaticalmente corretto ma privo di un senso logico.

Nelle sue ricerche, l’animatore ed illustratore Kris Young si imbatte in un’opera che commenta quella frase: “Perché questa bella immagine poetica viene citata dall’autore come la quintessenza di cio che è privo di senso?”

Così, decide che è il suo turno ed assembla parole, immagini e suoni in Sense and Nonsense. Le note di Michelangelo, del mio beneamato Astor Piazzolla, completano l’opera.
