David Knight - 23rd Jan 2018

A young man, carrying a bagful of loose audiotape, becomes embroiled in a surreal cycle of repetition, with timecode flickering on and off screen and the image fragmenting, in RUFFMERCY's hypnotic video for Nightmares On Wax.

Throughout RUFF's handmade strokes lick around the young man - the trademark visual motif of a director adding a interesting new layer of narrative to his usual work.
