Published Oct 05, 2016Most of us are pretty set on watching just about anything on a smartphone screen, but the new Justice video recalls the oppressive A/V power of a bunch of old-school TVs stacked onto each other. The vintage kick supports previously premiered single "Randy."
Director Thomas Jumin rigged up a bunch of old Sony TVs to flash and blip along to Justice's latest tune, with the screens displaying lyrics and a few more natural scenes. The clip was captured in real time.
Jumin explained in a statement:
The idea for this screen installation came from an inclination for an aesthetic in live show lighting that is both powerful and minimalistic. The object itself, the CRT Trinitron by Sony, is iconic for people of a certain generation for its design and for its specific rendering of the image. The idea was to build an installation made of 25 screens from 1987 and to use them with video controllers and analogue converters. We simply filmed it like one would film an art installation, so as to retain the object's authority and repetitive simplicity.
