Explosions in the Sky

The Ecstatics.

Explosions + Shape and Shadow

A stop-motion animated music video for one of my favorite bands, Explosions in the Sky. Everything was shot in camera using paper, projections and translucent materials like plastic and glass. The band’s brief was to create something inspired by “wilderness of the mind.” I thought of the beautiful chaos that is in the mind space and how that space has a multitude of transitions, whether it’s a transition from life to death or going from unknowing to knowing.
