"He go!" by S; digital story
Ahhh, the music video. Contrary to popular belief, video didn’t kill the radio star, just the imagination! Until this digital effort or lack thereof, S had shown promise as an artist’s artist producing a series of pieces absolutely percolating with possibility; humid, contemplative works that managed – if just barely -- to withstand the power of their own weight. Was the burden too great? Or is this simply a punchy artist having a laugh at our considerable expense? Either way, if this vapid candy is any indication, video is capable of killing many things, including a once promising career. Can he rebound? Watch this space, I know I shall.
