A Spiritual Guidance Spread
The concept for the video is based on the narrative of a classic tarot spread, guiding you through the emotional quest of the artist and experiencing an abstract journey through a modern adaptation of that old symbolism and its value of storytelling. The Spiritual Guidance Spread, a rarely used spread which is gaining new popularity, will help to understand the artists possible path from the present to a desired future, based on eight cards, that were carefully chosen to portray the narrative in an eloquent way. Each of the cards is framed and filmed as a painting-like vignette with only little motion to honor the traditional design of the cards and thereby their meaning. The cards chosen are as followed, The Empress, Three of Swords, Two of Swords, The Fool, Strength, Death, Knight of Cups and The Lovers. The video is shot on 16mm film using an old Bolex H16.
