Dave Hayes knows how to make screen tests look elegant. People are beautiful creatures and technology heightens that beauty. Angles can be explored outside of the face to face. Upwards, downwards, in shades of neon, people are versatile creatures. Soundtracks to life used to be the sounds of wildlife and traffic in unequal doses. Thanks to the ubiquitous nature of the personal soundtrack for personal journeys headphones make it happen.
Colors and textures are brilliant things. In the video the individuals stare blankly at the camera. They might have had a say in what song would play on their behalf. Perhaps they did not. Dave Hayes has nothing to say about the soundtrack selection. Rather than say anything Dave Hayes is into showing the oft-neglected world of digital nostalgia. Digital nostalgia is becoming a thing with the almighty never-ending journey down the path of progress.
A mellow song introduces the individuals doing fairly little. Their carefree attitude matches up nicely with the sleepy song. Fashion shows in the future will look like this: disjointed, discolored and downright delicious. Honestly with so many techniques available it is foolish to believe that people should present themselves in such ordinary light. Digital light allows for much more. People can stare blankly and be beautiful. Machines do the hard work for them. All they need to do is possess enough semblances to a human being to make it work.
Playing with hair, turning from one side to the other, they are content with the world that has embraced them. Beats try to keep time. The rhythm for the most part stays on course. Akin to the images the drum machine has elements of the human and the machine. Programmed to be slightly off it accentuates the power of the warm sound.
This is an ongoing series with Dave Hayes. He has more and more shall come forth bursting out of his mind onto the Internet. Facebook presence, Twitter Presence, VIMEO presence (VIMEO once more being the go to platform for artsy movies that YouTube users will never understand) the AVD78 project offers the world so much. Hopefully the world can begin to give back to him, show him the ways of a world sans digital sheen.
