Moving beams of light are projected onto Random bookshelves from MDF Italia, creating a three-dimensional kinetic landscape as the camera pans across.

The singer's face appears to break into pieces as the camera moves, creating a distorted collage effect.

"The video visualises the song's arc by using colours, camera movement and a slowly intensified motion of the actors, reaching the song's climax as the two lovers approach each other," says Haraldsson.

Other bookshelves we've published lately include a three-storey bookcase that spans the height of a house and shelves that spin round to form a circle or a grid.

Here's some information from the designer:


Icelandic Artist Harald Haraldsson creates a music video from empty bookshelves

Featuring the music of Reykjavik-based house music duo Baarregaard & Briem, visual artist Harald Haraldsson releases a music video to the song "Love With You" using empty bookshelves as a dynamic canvas for video projection.

The video was shot over the course of one night, using Random bookshelves from MDF Italia as a projection surface, emphasizing the sharp geometry of the well known bookshelf design. Using custom software, Haraldsson controlled the minimal visual effects through delaying color channels and generating slowly rotating lines that break upon the edges of the bookshelves.

The video visualises the song's arc by using colors, camera movement, and a slowly intensified motion of the actors, reaching the song's climax as the two lovers approach each other.

This is Haraldsson's first venture into music videos, having until now created interactive installations and directed commercials, with one of his projects featuring giant industrial robots - in line with Haraldsson's technical approach to visual arts.

About the music:

Baarregaard & Briem is the musical collaboration between the Reykjavik-based producer B.G. Baarregaard and singer/actor Alexander Briem. "Love With You" is their second output, released through the independent Icelandic electronic music label Imola Nights.
