Following Hanne Lippard‘s video for ‘MIMOSA’, Rachel Reupke directed Heatsick‘s ‘CLEAR CHANEL’, lifted from the Berlin-based artist’s RE-ENGINEERING, released on PAN, November 26.
Premiered on XLR8 and running along a similar aesthetic as ‘MIMOSA”s slightly skewed stock imagery for the home user, Reupke’s expanding and contracting tree bark and an endless stack of envelopes playfully echoes speculative realism’s fetishistic relationship with the material. As aid to the undulating one-minute instrumental named after what Heatsick calls “the smell of modernity“, ‘CLEAR CHANEL’ proposes a sight and a sound for it too.
