The inspiration for this Tid video is a mix between John Bauer’s art and our favorite movies from the 70’s and 80’s; Fairy tales and sci fi - the lands and worlds of wonder and mystery. In order to get the right feel the video has been transposed to VHS and then back to digital - a form of true filtering to obtain a true VHS quality. As with the idea for video, this is a sonic landscape telling mystic truths and esoteric visions. The constructed dawn: Aurora Surrealis - Mankind’s own sunrise.
