GIFs by Becky Chung In a tiny dim studio, Brussels-based artist Olya TsoraEva painstakingly created a mold of Thom Yorke’s face out of plasticine for her stop-motion film Plastic Crash, a work deeply rooted in Radiohead’s “Creep.” It took four months to get all of his features right, and an additional nine months to handcraft the animation.
