Haven't heard of director and artist Xavier Chassaing? Perhaps this will put him on your radar. For his short animation, "Dry Lights," Chassaing created a glowing desert that gradually comes to multicolored, luminous life. The film's style exemplifies the young French director's surreal and otherworldly vision, and includes computer-rendered landscapes based on an actual ethnobotanical garden in Oaxaca, Mexico. The video isn't just a frenzied psychedelic trip: lines of illumination traverse and scan the desert, suggesting a detailed analysis of the topography and its flora.
