Wide open

This music video from The Chemical Brothers is incredible. A single-shot sequence of a lone dancer moving around a grungy industrial warehouse space. So far, so normal. But gradually parts of her body become like wireframe, see-through, and that’s when the magic happens.

It’s just so detailed and intricate. That you can see her leg through her other leg. That the red pants are wrapped around an essentially non-existent body by the end.

And such a simple idea, with huge implications. When I watched the behind the scenes video, below, I really loved it even more. So much work going into a five minute video, but worth every second.

The song’s not bad either!
