Süveyda

‘Light and dark, noise and calm, beauty, decay, pain and hope–these are the shattering contrasts that propel our lives ahead in the boundless, throbbing river of existence. None of us knows what the next moment will bring, the raptures and terrifying discoveries born with every choice. And yet, in the alternation of day and night, in the ebb and tide of the oceans, in the constant expansion and quiet contraction of our lungs in and out with each breath–we know our journey is not random chaos but a journey where every shouting supernova, every trembling cell, returns to the one perfect mystery from which we all come and go.’

Ariel

Our friends at Field have just created a digital dance performance exploring the eternal struggle of good and evil, for Stateless‘ latest single Ariel, which is soon to be released on Ninja Tune.
FIELD animated the two opponent characters of the song as surreal human figures, drawing dynamic sculptures into space. They collaborated with professional dancer Dominic North to record an impromptu interpretation of the song in a motion capture studio. There is a really interesting ‘making of’ video which can be found here.
The work was commissioned by Oscar&Ewan.
