WL//WH is pleased to Premiere the awe-inspiring DIY video by Karen Vogt herself with footage from Virginia‘s multidisciplinary artist Anthony L. Childs.
Floating emotive-charged oneiric dimensions wavering between incantation and lingering dread, organically coalesce in atmospheric droning modulations and impalpable hushed vocalizations, whilst caressing synth waves and vibrating outflows merge into an ethereal realm of cool spatial airs cast in shimmering rains and glistening chimes to stir magical mercurial moods into a timeless head space where hot and cold sensibilities meet along cathartic sentiments of growth and reflection.
Magnificent, high-definition video captures the breathtaking beauty of moths. Surreal yet crystalline visions inspect the vibrant hues, fragile textures, and rare personalities of each specimen to conjure universal symbols for wisdom, direction, and insight. Time lapsed momentums, blurry backdrops, and fantastic camera angles hone in on the unique patterns and unseen connections made manifest by the union of winged segments, to sync seamlessly with the arousing trembling sentience of the ambient soundtrack.
All proceeds from Volume 3 will be donated to Eden Reforestation Projects, to help continue their work sustaining important local environments, and providing jobs to those that restore and maintain them.
