David Knight - 8th June 2016

The third collaboration between New York-based singer/songwriter Benjamin Scheuer and director Peter Baynton depicts the artist’s autobiographical view over his struggle with cancer - stage four Hodgkin lymphoma – at the age of 28.

It's depicted in the video with his near-naked body progressively covered with huge schism-like cracks, via pixellation. It's suitably overwhelming, yet subtly executed as Scheuer's predicament becomes clear, and we wait to hear the outcome of an important consultation following his treatment.

Powerful, gripping stuff, and the subject of an article in the New York Times recently.
