Marco Brambilla

If you checked out our Facebook yesterday you would of seen that we posted an incredible video from Brambilla.

GHOST is a study of model Natasha Poly. An investigation into the obsessive behavior of the public eye and it's lingering effects on those chased and caught by it. The piece utilizes multiple shots, all presented head-on, giving the audience an opportunity to experience the deconstruction of an icon as it strips the beauty out of fashion.

FLASHBACK deals with the collective subconscious and memory using film iconography, the work is presented in a thirty-six block video matrix spanning six distinct phrases. Mirroring the arc of life, each phrase evokes specific psychological responses depending on the associations each individual makes between the video loops . The effect is akin to watching a video Rorschach test.

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.
