Human decomposition as a thing of beauty and wonder. It’s so profound (and frankly, just a bit icky) that it takes a while to even begin to think how they achieved it.
Dirty Projectors 'Up In Hudson' by Daren Rabinovitch
Daren Rabinovitch of Encyclopedia Pictura addresses the tricky business of love in his video for Dirty Projectors. He charts the classic stages of a relationship, from beginning to end, through a cast of characters who all share a common distinguishing feature.
Dirty Projectors' song Up In Hudson is a personal story. Rabinovitch and his associate director Isaiah Saxon have opened it out, and added the magic and fantasy, and brilliant colour palette, of which their creative collective are rightly renowned. Recognisable modern settings become the domain where the characters (the descendants of characters from The Hobbit?) find and enjoy, stumble and lose love, and then find themselves.
Every shot is imbued with the familiar EP pink and blue-hued superreal look, and each stage brings new wonders - none less than the brilliant final sequence, at a busy intersection in Manhattan.
