2-channel music video (4’12”, 2016)
2x 1.66:1 spherical widescreen
The music video for the song “Is She Worth It?” by Viennese band Vicious is an experiment to combine lessons I learned from filmmaking and installative video art. It features the two most common archetypes of music video style: the narrative music video and the performance music video, both of which I see usually heavily intercut.
What would happen if I treated it as 2-channel video installation to separate the band from the story and hence separate the narrative spaces to bypass the rapid-fire editing most common in commercial music videos?
How would the person they sing about would react to the song? What if “Is she worth it?” becomes “Am I worth it?”
