    Gotta love dystopian imagery. I love it when the visual narrative of a music video gives a song which I would otherwise find uninteresting a certain level of depth.

    • What happened to the other video for this song?? I preferred it. I’ve been searching all over the internet but it seems to have disappeared… shame.

  • Joel

    Beautiful.

    But yes, definitely weird. I love Royskopp.

  • Hmmmmmmmm apocalypse….my favourite.

  • Ramona

    I think it’s too photographic… Some scenes are there just because they look good, they don’t mix well with eachother and don’t even build a story. I guess we let us impressed of things too shallow these days. The song is very nice, though.

  • Kris di

    Though I very much enjoy the strange and apocalyptic feel, a part of me can’t help but take offense that all but one of the unsettling images of distorted faces seem to use people of color. I don’t like the sinking suspicion that it was intended to help induce a feeling of dread.

  • sick mark

    i don’t think it’s apocalyptic, it looks as dilapidated as eastern europe at the moment, and i think that’s it’s merit. plus, how more present can you get-they’ve got spraybooth tees!

  • SWIN

    Great video !

  • uh? I’m so lost. But I love the dog. He’s pretty 😀

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing on them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life. After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
