We can’t help but viewing 2011 in terms of artistic losses—from Lucian Freud and Cy Twombly [sigh!] to John Chamberlain and Helen Frankenthaler—and don’t even get us started on Hitch. This perspective makes our own 2011 highlight reel about as uplifting as the annual Academy Awards death montage, and so we defer to Mac Premo and Oliver Jeffers of The Daily. The video artists have whipped up this two-minute video recap of the biggest stories of 2011, from the January shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to the end of the Iraq War, all in a whimsical stop-motion style that recalls the interstitial programs of Sesame Street. Happy New Year!
