concept and candy
Video by Koerner Union for Larytta. Both out of Switzerland.
Viewed without sound I found myself thinking about ideas like math and science, the natural world vs. the created world.....the pulse of chaos..overpopulation, and the so-called "natural state of things," Also wondering how they got all those animals in there, and the implications of the use of animals detached from their natural environment...And so on...
Viewed with music the meaning of the video transformed into a more audio-visual experience - almost feeling commercial. Reminding me to never underestimate the power of music and its absence.
