Transfer of Energy [Feelings of Power] — 2015
Music video for Egyptrixx
This is the fourth collaboration with Egyptrixx [David Psutka] after Start from the Beginning, Old Black and Ax//s. David had sent me a picture of some heliostats in a desert before we got started which resonated well with me as an iconic man-made structure. The 3d model in this scene actually belongs to the ISS, which I repurposed as the reflecting panels and the tower where the water is being heated.
The planet environment is something that was left by a civilisation which is now extinct or has shifted to the next phase of being. This ties in with the non-narrative narrative tradition, which has been a part of our collaboration since 2011.
Fluids and fluid simulations are another icon from the visual language David and I developed over the last few years and this the Ouroboros version of this recurring theme. The high-viscosity snake feeds on itself referencing the different states of liquid in medieval alchemy.
