Essence is the Future/Atomic – Countif
Extract from the music video I’ve done for the track Essence is the Future from the EP Atomic by Countif
Video part of the audiovisual EP. a collaboration with also 3 others visuals artists BenSmith @anotherbensmith, Emily Bailey @emilybaileyvisuals, Tom Brown @tombrownvisual to create a video for each of the tracks of the release. We worked together to explore the themes and used as a base, the same set of footages.
Music video done mixing different techniques, content created in cinema 4D and after effects, then visuals recorded live with madmapper and modul8, and final edit with premiere.
Project inspired by the work of Timothy Morton and the concept of hyperobjects.
‘Atomic’ is about the tension in the relationship between the individual and the bigger system within which they’re a part. This is inspired by Timothy Morton and the concept of hyperobjects, things that are vast in time and space but within which we are a part and are affected by all the time, such as climate change.
