Zen and the Art of Tom Sachs’ Vimeo Account

I was introduced to artist Tom Sachs about a month ago, when Jason Kottke posted Sachs’ short film “A Love Letter to Plywood” on kottke.org.

Sachs’ Vimeo account is comprised of a collection of videos that serve as a primer for prospective visitors to and employees of his studio.  The films he makes have a strange zen to them, that I find incredibly appealing.  This is how art should be made.  Here, craft and art combine.

My favorite is COLOR.:

I’d imagine these videos would be excellent viewing for those interested in ASMR.
