Luke Bather - 7th Nov 2016

Bonobo soundtracks The Rapture in this head-spinning, hyper-detailed video by Dave Bullivant, aka BISON.

With erratic, repetitive cuts showing a panicked woman, played by Gemma Arterton, running through London during what appears to be The Ascension, you could be forgiven for thinking that the video starts and ends with this clever editing concept. You would, however, be very wrong.

Buried within the frames of this video are tons of visual curiosities, Easter eggs and elements of supernatural foreshadowing that show both an incredible attention to detail, and Bison's smart willingness to exploit the average viewer's inability to notice subtle changes on a first viewing.
