Boats * Cars * Dollars * Girls * Helicopters * Jewellery * Skylines (2010) – Thomas Traum
Music by Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor – 04 – IV. Commissioned by Grok Institute for the “En Avant” show. From the Artist's Statement: "A typology of rap videos and an attempt to construct the most generic Rap and R&B video out of many ... I am fascinated by their highly aesthetic visual displays of objects. Through their likeness they seem to be almost ‘classic’, just as classic theater or opera. I am also fascinated by their focus on objects and how they portray them in a very aesthetic and often minimal way, which reminds me of techniques used mainly in art."
