Scissor Sisters tone down their glam disco selves a slight bit with this romp into surreal psychedelia. I guess this is the trend of the hour, and this video takes it all the way there with images of wolves, crucifixions, coffins, and burials joining hands with geometric shapes and nonsensical hallucinations. Hmm! I’d say this is one of the more impressive video outputs of the year, though I wouldn’t have expected this from Scissor Sisters.
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
