Watch a piece of cinematic beauty from Ólafur Arnalds.
A rotating camera tenderly visualises a family’s dinner table over the years, capturing dramatic moments in time including an empty chair signifying the loss of a loved one. Haunting stuff.
Taken from the revived and reissued ‘Eulogy For Evolution 2017′ album edition
Words from the video director Eilifur Örn:
“We travel through the circle of life from a family’s perspective by watching them at the dinner table over decades. The idea came instantly after I heard the song. I met with Òli and pitched him the idea. He told me that more or less I had just described the concept of the album, so we went ahead and started planning. In the end we ended up shooting the video in Òli´s childhood home where he wrote the very same song.”
