Those Real

Those Real is the second collaboration between Austrian animator and director Marco Fontan and London based act Kinkajous for their latest release 'Being Waves'.

This video originated from a frame of a few seconds that was created while Marco was working on another music video for the band. It moved them in such a profound way and seemed to embrace the essence of the record so perfectly that they decided to create an entirely new piece around it.

'Those Real' feels both intimate and immense, a highly evocative piece inviting to reflection. In it, we witness these otherworldly monoliths slowly forming, grabbing us and growing until there is nothing left but silence.

Director Statement

When exploring visual concepts with computational tools, art can get very sterile and artificial. As an observer of natural phenomena, I am interested in bringing turbulence into my work. I like to explore the edge of clean mathematics and chaos, merging the artificial and the natural.

'Those Real' is an exploration of reality and perception, an ever evolving world inviting us to reflect on ideas of certainty, belief and identity.
