Bedtime Story



This is a video by one of my favorite directors, Mark Romanek. His music videos bring cinema to another level in terms of its imagery and artistic integrity.

Just as "The Fountain" was a film I enjoyed for its Symbolist "moving painting" qualities, I find similar pleasure--and guidance on my own path as an artist with a vision--when I view this video (which was based on the paintings of female surrealists; the song was written by Bjork) and other works by Romanek (which is on a DVD compilation my brother so thoughtfully gave me as a gift last year).

Enjoy, but be aware that some of the images may disturb (I think that's a good thing, but you choose what you want to put in your head, okay?).

Invite Beauty,

I.
