N. Lannon 'Another Love' by Michael Langan and Najeeb Tarazi
California-based artist N. Lannon has released this gorgeous and trance-inducing piece by Michael Langan and Najeeb Tarazi for his track Another Love, which immerses the viewer in an ethereal 3D world, basking in the light produced by a pregnant woman's head, with blissed out dancers at her feet, in the middle of an endless ocean with puffy, Magritte clouds overhead. It's like a power-nap in video form, a wonderfully soothing four-minute long holiday.
The video was premiered on The Creator's Project, with a blog post providing some information on the concept and technique. And as it turns out, the video was made using some hi-tech yet accessible equipment: "three Kinects, each paired with a 4k color camera."
"What we're trying to do with the aesthetic of 'Another Love' is invert the uncanny valley – your brain knows you are looking at a pleasant artificial world, but it also senses that the characters you are seeing are actual people," Tarazi told The Creators Project.
Langan added: "Video games of the early 90s are a big inspiration for the video. You can feel Sonic the Hedgehog in the golden rings of lyrics. The color palette, dolphins, and environments are a nod to Wave Race 64, slowed down to a delicious pace." Indeed. An absolutely lovely video.
