Michelle Blades / Midnight Special Records
The title of Michelle Blades' latest release, Amor sin destino (meaning Fateless Love), can be interpreted literally or poetically. To express that notion, we decided to take on the vanitas concept with a very down-to-earth and contemporary approach, depicting a slow wandering around a desktop on a sleepless night. Various personal objects from the artist are featured, along with classical vanitas symbols such as the iconic skull or bubbles. The video contains multiple Easter eggs that call for a contemplative viewing, evoking nostalgia, romanticism and/or introspection.
