Rinpa Eshidan amazes me. Despite the fact that I can't find a link to any articles, I clearly remember discussing them on Vice, but their latest creation "Cube" just came onto the internet.
 
The group is based in Japan, but for a word on their style I will refer directly to them.

The Rinpa Eshidan is a team of artists brought together by a common creative expression...
-The group's main activities are performing in live-art events and creating videos of art in action. Instead of focusing on the finished project, we believe the process of creation itself is where art comes to life and our videos aim to engage our audience in that process.

How super awesome nerdy is that? As a theatre major I can tell you that my attraction to stage performances comes from that same sentiment. "Cube," is actually a bit different, rotating the cube gives them new canvasses. Thus, a lot of the play comes from being able to intersperse the other works they were creating into the current one. So cool.
 
Under the precaution you are not familiar with their works, I've included the gateway drug, a project where they encapsulated a weeks worth of painting and repainting at a Japanese street corner.

The music in the cube video is very hypnotic. It was a very cool process to watch as well.
