Son Lux 'Cage of Bones' by Jean-Paul Frenay

Son Lux 'Cage of Bones' by Jean-Paul Frenay

Jean-Paul Frenay's Son Lux video is a haunting indictment of over-consumption of modern life. With vignetted scenes gliding from uber-dark to pitch-black we get windows into a dystopian sci-fi world that's so close to our own it's chilling. 

Each scene - be it a couple of scientists syphoning sweat from an overweight woman, or a complacent couple being fed a meal by their robot friend, happily staring into the uncanny valley - is composed beautifully, like an art installation. It all feels incredibly meticulous - there doesn't appear to be a single extraneous element here. It all adds to the cold, harsh and efficient atmosphere that Frenay is trying to put across.
