Keynes Woods 'Tim Burt' by Luke Tierney

David Knight - 17th July 2020

Rapper Keynes Woods tussles with his alter-ego, and the strange goings-on in a deserted factory, in Luke Tierney's impressive video for Tim Burt, from his EP Kongo Kane.

With Keynes Woods running through the corridors of this abandoned building, he takes a breather, and begins performing, before we notice a second, bare-chested Keynes - a more playful, manic version. The work becomes a series of stylish set-pieces in a weird game of cat and mouse, showcasing the rapper's assured presence in both his guises. And Tierney increasingly employs a simple yet highly effective visual device, where the original Keynes's movement trips the lighting of a room between red and blue.   

With fabulous cinematography by Joel Honeywell, the use of composition and colour make this a properly cinematic experience, steeped in the atmosphere of horror, but confidently veering into comedy and the surreal. A hell of a ride.
