Beck and the Chemical Brothers Go Transparent in ‘Wide Open’ Video

The Chemical Brothers and Beck collaborated last year on the Born in the Echoes track “Wide Open,” and today they released a video to go with the song. Directed by Chemicals favorites Dom & Nic, the clip features a dancer moving to and fro around a warehouse, only as she undulates, her body begins to… well, change. Here’s the vision behind the “Wide Open” video:

Dom&nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team created a full CG model of the dancer, Sonoya Mizuno, comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance.
