Elijah Wood is featured in the hauntingly beautiful music video for Flying Lotus' track "Tiny Tortures." Pulse Films' director David Lewandowski takes us on a twisted journey into the mind of a recent amputee played by Elijah Wood, whose possessions slowly self-assemble to build him a new arm. Check out the video below!

Elijah Wood (The Hobbit) convalesces in bed with a bandaged stump in place of his right arm. Maybe it's magic, or meds, but his room slowly comes alive to create a bionic replacement and transport him into a fractal fantasy where his limb fully regenerates. It's all a dream, maybe the result of watching Akira too often — but he wakes up to a change in his condition that proves something happened in his altered state.

"The impetus for this idea was from a director called Jaume Collet-Sera," said Lewandowski. "He was slated to direct a live action version of Akira. I really liked the idea of someone doing all this telekinetic, hallucinatory, visual stuff on a big budget level. And then the project got cancelled. The thought of seeing that all photo-realistic really excited me, and then the project went away so I said I just have to do that kind of animation. So I wrote an idea from that despair of really wanting to see really interconnected, mechanical, psychic floating objects."
