Music video for Sydney band No Art's single 'Forest'.
In a retro futuristic urban landscape, three characters anxiously suffer the claustrophobia of the urban setting; longing for something they can't vocalise. Escape manifests itself first as a hologram dream-scape and finally as tactile reality, much to the protagonists' delight and ecstasy.
