SYNOPSIS

A music video for a song - collage I've seen that … Like it is by a music group 2227 from Ljubljana blends shots of the group's performance with projections of graffiti by Strip Core group. Usage of lights and postproduction create chaotic and expressive atmosphere, which follows the dramaturgy of music. Scenes of one part of the video are shot in a smaller space with walls covered in graffiti. Lights and projections make the space flat and almost two-dimensional. Projections of graffiti draw an outline of the singer's figure, making him isolated figure on a black background. Projections onto human face seem like tattoos and the singer becomes some sort of supernatural creature using his facial expressions to intensify the dramatic affect. The second part is a combination of animated graffiti and multiplied images of members of the band. With editing the author makes collages of these elements on a basis of complementary contrast between black and orange.
