Astronautalis - Forest Fire (Official Video)

A couple of weeks ago, my manager got an email out of the blue from an artist named Zuzana Mazacova in the Czech Republic, with a youtube link attached. ”I don't know if you remember how we talked about the Cut the Body Loose album and how I like Forest Fire the most? How I kept having pictures in my head while listening to it? Well .... since I study audiovisual arts, I've created a video for that song. It's a personal projects - the "actors" aren't actors at all - it's my best friend and my boyfriend. I had no budget, no film crew, it was totally punk shooting”. She certainly had our interest with that, but the video she made, was magical, and strange, and so beautifully shot, i felt it had to he shared.

Artwork never comes out of the ether, work is created after a lifetime of inspiration, and technique piles up inside of you, and in some serendipitous conspiracy those two disparate worlds collide and some creation is pulled out of the rubble. It is rarely an easy process, and often so reliant on outside forces, and inspiration, that when i see my work has inspired someone else in their process, it is almost as thrilling as having created a piece on my own.

I love knowing that my work excites people like this, and getting to share this with you is such a thrill.

I hope you enjoy it as much as i did, and that it excites something in you!
