L. Adam Fox talks about the inspiration behind the clip:
“I love working with Parker. We actually spent a couple of weeks together in close quarters at an artist residency at Banff Centre last fall, where I finished writing and recording the material that ended up being this record. I’ve always been attracted to the aesthetic of his visual art, and I thought that it would be a good fit with some of the themes I’d been preoccupied with. Tensions between technology and progress – antiquity and modernism. The way he manipulates dated technology to create these new ideas is really inspiring to me. I think there’s an echo in the dichotomies and questions that informed a lot of the direction of the album.”
