NYC-based artist dynamic duo Mike Bailey-Gates and Claire Christerson, aka Mike and Claire, blend their love of performance, costume design, and film in their zany videos and gifs, creating a whole slew of characters, from humorous to disturbing. Their inspiration? Artists including Ryan Trecartin, Cindy Sherman, and Nina Hagen, as well as New York City nightlife with an emphasis on queer, subculture events. They tend to use themselves in their work with props they’ve collected, as well as costumes that Claire creates. They met as students at the School of Visual Arts and have been collaborating ever since.

You can see much more of the nuttiness on their site.
