From Above

This piece plays with the perception of audio-visual relationships, and how emotionally opposed media, when connected rather than contrasted, can be more loaded than the separate works. The video joins the lyrics about "heaven" and "angels" sent "from above" with pictures of bombs falling to create a different perception of the weapon.

Music: "Angel Love" by Samantha James
