Below is the beautifully animated new video from Andrew Bird for the track Eyeoneye…taken from his recently-released album Break It Yourself
The video was debuted on the Etsy website earlier this week, and here is what they had to say about the Yu “Ewan” Morita directed video…
‘When director Yu “Ewan” Morita first read the lyrics to Andrew Bird’s “Eyeoneye,” he was immediately reminded of the magic that occurs inside the human body. Using the concept of antithesis, Ewan decided to play with textural contrast for the video, using soft, fuzzy felt pieces to construct internal organs. Working together, he and Andrew also incorporated the space outside the body, drawing inspiration from lyrics like “wear it inside out” and “wring it out.” The final concept expanded to include additional contrasting themes: day and night; black and white; micro and macro.
When asked to reflect on the handmade nature of the “Eyeoneye” video, producer Chika Yamaguchi said, “Handmade never has perfect lines; unevenness and roughness are everywhere. Ewan loves imperfections because we ourselves are made from those, and the world we live in is filled with them.”
