It’s no secret that Robyn is increasingly becoming one of the most interesting pop artists in the scene right now. And music videos like this one will only solidify her status as such. Here’s Indestructible, directed by Nils Ljunggren and Max Vitali. It somehow follows the concept of the installation Fluid Dress by Charlie Bucket and Ratatat. As the directors explain, it showcases a project that started over two years ago generating dynamic textiles made from liquid, air and vapor. 1.2 kilometres of transparent plumbing tubing was knitted with fishing wire to skin Robyn’s body. 40 litres of glycerol pumps through over a kilometre of tube, powered by drill pumps that connect to valves releasing air intermittently between the liquid. Gradient colors pulse through the tubes at different speeds, the effect is a living, breathing dynamic skin that traverses the landscape of the body. And the result is striking indeed.
