Well, the video was really cheap to make, but somehow, we found a nerve at the club, and Agnes really took the job seriously. The song became a worldwide hit, and the video played all over. We had a club and a van and some great dancers and we basically just improvised the whole shoot.
This 'Making Of' video showcases a project that started over two years ago generating dynamic textiles made from liquid, vapor and air. 1.2 kilometres of transparent plumbing tubing was knitted with fishing wire to skin Robyn's body. 40 litres of glycerol pumps through over a kilometre of tube, powered by drill pumps that connect to valves releasing air intermittently between the liquid. Gradient colors pulse through the tubes at different speeds, the effect is a living, breathing dynamic skin that traverses the landscape of the body.
