Chris Cunningham where are you now?

Chris Cunningham has skills. And his vision is DARK. The work he did for Aphex Twin in the late 90's was way, way, way ahead of its time. Flex, a piece from 2000 is not to be missed either:

CC was born in 1970. Which means he was making huge, kick ass work in his late 20's. After watching his
DVD (trailer above), which covers his work from 1995 - 2005 I was curious to know what he's been doing since then.

From what I can find online....not much. He made a scary/disturbing short in 2005 called Rubber Johnny. A music video for the Horrors in 2006. Then a commercial for Gucci in 2008. A quick photo shoot with Grace Jones for Dazed and Confused in 2008, then a live video/music set at the Big Chill Festival this year.

For someone this talented and accomplished, it's strange to see him slow down so dramatically. It seems like people this creative have no choice but to keep creating. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places, but I wish there was more of Mr. Cunningham's amazing work out there.
