Lost in the Woods - Kanye West (WIP)

This is a kinetic type piece of Kanye West's "Lost in the Woods." This is meant to be an artistic interpretation of the melancholy feeling the listener gets from the song. the resulting aesthetic is a "visual Rothko" that builds up in intensity just like Kanye's voice. This was created by a combination of tools such as Cinema 4D, live action, still image, and hand painted/drawn elements.

This project visualizes the growth in intensity and emotion that the song has already captured in sound. I drew inspiration from Rothko, and implemented the use of a split screen to represent two colors that capture the melancholy of the song.
Sometimes we have to try thinks that are a little risky. This project was one of them - rather than present a commercial, marketable product I wanted to produce something that was emotional and artistic. This piece features 3D, hand-painted elements, live action footage, and other elements. Ideally, this project would include datamoshing, which would explain certain elements in the piece that do not fit.
