By 3D scanning the band Woman, Cologne-based creatives Dmitry Zakharov and Jake Harrison Meyer explore the various types of modern reality.
Where exactly do time, physical reality, and the digital world connect? It’s hard to say, but the Cologne-based duo of Dmitry Zakharov and Jake Harrison Meyer explore the question’s possibilities in a dazzling new music video for the band Woman’s track “Marvelous City.” Combining 3D scans of the electronic three-piece with VHS footage shot in Cologne, Zakharov and Meyer take viewers on a virtual camera flight around statuesque versions of the band members, whose black forms become the reflective canvases upon which animated psychedelic lights flash, bend and descend in various patterns.
“‘Marvelous City’ deals with the representation of various reality forms which are influenced by our contemporary society,” says the duo. “Do we seriously question and work towards our dreamlike concepts and expectations, or are we at risk [of getting] lost within them, without ever fulfilling our needs?”
