This music video for Akwasi is about combining two of my favourite interests: art & technology. By surrounding the rapper with his own lyrics I pursued a world where he could perform in sync with the animations and become one with his own words and thoughts. The multiple layers and experimental visuals in the imagery reflects the high energy and edgy sound of the music.
