Puzzle 'Little Black Book' by Ruslan Pelykh

Puzzle 'Little Black Book' by Ruslan Pelykh

Ruslan Pelykh's performance video for Puzzle is a piece of minimalist cool with a heavy post-production flare.

Featuring many hands clawing their way from the edges of the frame throughout the video, the images created here with a limited but well-used colour palette of red, white and black are wonderful collages with considered composition. A full frame never appears cluttered, and a stark frame never empty.

Costume and make-up conspire here to make Puzzle seem somewhat otherworldly, which is only enhanced when he dissolves into nothing at the end of the track.
