Sound and Vision//David Bowie – Love is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA) (Full Video)
The release of the budget first video for the recently released Hello Steve Reich Mix of Love is Lost was a good example of what minimalism and good lighting can do in film making. But today saw the release of the full length video that features a far more high tech concept.
A virtual world is created over the course of the video that eventually merges into the form of a man and a woman kissing naked. Love is the theme in this digital world and just as in any other point of his career; Bowie keeps us intrigued with modern yet timeless renderings of his considerable work. A minimalist video uses white walls to great effect, matching the approach taken to the parent album The Next Day’s packaging design.
