The Afterdark

Best Music Video
The album film follows the narrative of a fictional expedition of five Antarctic explorers. Their expedition dwells between anthropocentric approaches of measuring and data collecting and the futility of such explorations. Pieces of ice are examined for microorganisms, distances are measured, and soil and water samples are taken, but what the data is used for is not made clear. This futile data collection reveals the absurdity of such an expedition, which follows a very Western, science-oriented, and anthropocentric approach to surveying a world characterized by environmental change.
The film’s calm filmy language leads through the film and alternates between the virtual and the real, floating in past futurity.
