I just spent a ridiculous amount of time on Bristol-based artists John Wood and Paul Harrison’s website and found myself smiling throughout.

Working together for almost 20 years, these two straight-faced Brits explore the physical and psychological parameters of the world around them through a series of drawings that lead to their constructed video works. Initially their videos were more single-shot studies, but they have since evolved into longer pieces with a sequence of actions taking place within a confined space.

If you like what you see here, and you’ve got some time, work your way through the alphabet on their site; you’ll be in for guaranteed amusement. Or, take a look at the video interview below that includes several of their works in motion.
