Luke Bather - 16th Mar 2017

Dan Emmerson collaborates with Actress in the high-fashion dystopian video for X22RME.

The clip follows a figure in a welder's mask as he wanders through a brutalist world of minimalism, sculpture, football pitches and models on pedestals. The finished piece is a haunting exercise in style and communication.

"This quote from Darren [Actress] was the inspiration for this video. It's also about the language of communication and interpretation: ‘translucent ambience coming from an incognito slightly on the edge but eternally fixed paradigm.’"
