Published Dec 07, 2015"Do you claim to drag your net through deep waters," Mac McCaughan questions in the opening line to Non-Believers number "Your Hologram." A new video takes the lyrics at face value, presenting a watery scene, as screened on TV.
As you'll see below, Toronto artist Emmie Tsumura's video is a hand-drawn extravaganza meshing fluid scenes and calligraphy with the synth-warmed tones of McCaughan's contemplative original.
"My work is influenced by Chinese and Japanese ink wash painting, ukiyo-e art, and calligraphy, and of course the magical worlds of Hayao Miyazaki," Tsumura explained in a statement.
She added: "What stuck with me about this song was the idea of trying to access something locked away in a different time, and the heart that continues to dream in the present tense. I played with the distance between three planes of time and reality, starting with a Sharpie, and finishing nearly 1800 frames in total with digital hand-sketching to create a 'down in the basement' studio vibe."
