Death Grips — Eh

I was approached by long time collaborator and friend, director Sean Metelerkamp to produce key visuals for the Eh music video. The entire video is passed through various filters and motion effects, which degrade and distort the graphics heavily. So the biggest challenge was to create graphics that would still be discernible throughout the video. In keeping with the ethos of the group, the graphics are intended to be jarring, violent and contemporary. Found imagery is used to create tension between themes of cunsumersim, globalisation, sex, violence and the occult.

Generation of key graphics for motion
