Big fan of Cunningham's work, and would love to see information about it from across the subforums centralized here. I have several interviews scoured from the web over the years that I will post here shortly.

Another Man magazine's latest issue (A/W 2014) has a new interview and notes that a new work is "on the brink of release." Their website includes this excellent playlist of selections by Cunningham.

Also, to tie in with the recent Star Wars teaser, here's Cunningham's visual remix of Empire Strikes Back:

There's already a good site that sums up Chris' body of work:

no update for over a year though, despite the Jaqapparattus thing being fairly recent...

 

edit: business beat me to the business

That site (which was great) hasn't been updated in over a year, as far as I can tell?

Yeah, that's true - despite promised updates, they still haven't put up anything... the nerve! *ducks*

I like how in every interview he is working on something that no one in the public ever sees. Nuromancer, spectral musicains. His music he produces. The warpaint documentary from last year. Now software development. Most likley a syro video sitting on his shelf. :D

I can't fathom how this guy makes a living, when nothing he works on ever gets released!

wait a sec guys, he made a warpaint music video (in my opinion the only bad thing he ever made) than the Jaqapparatus for a CAR COMPANY and some live shows in the past 2-3 years.

He could also be some consultant for movie/commercial companies and he sure owns some equipment to borrow.

here you have his income.

He seems to have moved into the same strange circles as Mira Calix, having convinced higher ups to "commission" their work. Must be easier in EU with all the grants, govt funded artwork, etc.

I swear this guy doesn't age.

Uses the same Cien moisturiser as Bryan Singer and Pharrell. Night cream and day cream.

Financially, I think Grace Jones gave him a lot of money when he photoshopped her naked body into different shapes.

The Director's Label DVD is a great collection of his work (That whole series is awesome) but it doesn't have anything he's done since before the video for The Horror's and Rubber Johnny... it's also missing a couple of his stuff from earlier like the video he did for the Auteurs and "Flex" in it's entirety.

      Chris Cunningham's debut at the Royal Academy of Arts of his short film/video Flex, with music by Aphex Twin. This was part of the exhibition, Apocalypse: Beauty and Horror in Contemporary Art.

      "From his formative years sculpting alien heads to his recent "jaqapparatus 1" robotic performance-art installation, seminal music video director-turned-artist Chris Cunningham retraces his varied and critically acclaimed career in this personal, self-directed short. One of an elite group of directors alongside Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Jonathan Glazer who redefined MTV in the 1990s, Cunningham elevated the pop promo to a burgeoning art form with daring and disturbing music videos for the likes of Aphex Twin, Björk and Madonna. While his peers graduated to the big screen, Cunningham went underground, quit making promos and commercials, and spent the best part of a decade experimenting with fusions of film, music, art and technology that culminated in a string of live audio-visual performances at festivals in Japan and Europe. For "jaqapparatus 1", his first installation unveiled last month at the Audi City London high-tech concept store—a shadowy, sci-fi set involving two laser-firing robots locked in what seemed like a brutal mating ritual-cum-war—Cunningham cast two Talos motion-controlled camera rigs as his anthropomorphized protagonists. “Mounted on the robots heads are powerful lasers which they use to attack, repel and communicate with each other,” explains Cunningham, “a kind of duel, a surreal mating display which sees each machine trying to dominate the other."
