Kanye West enlisted the amazing Marco Brambilla to create his latest video, “Power”. If you’ve stayed at New York’s The Standard Hotel, you maybe familiar with the artists work from the video screens in the elevators. Watch the video to find out more about the artists process and this particular video with Kanye West.
“POWER shows a continuous camera move from extreme close-up of Mr. West revealing an a neoclassical video tableau showing characters and creatures surrounding him in an abstract environment – all moving in extreme slow motion.
Inspired by Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the piece depicts a faux historical moment – an empire on the brink of collapse from its own excess, decadence and corruption.”
