Negatives

In early celebration of seeing Metric in concert tomorrow (or actually today, since it’s 2 am now), here is the new video for lead singer Emily Haines’ song “Our Hell” off her 2006 solo album. Everything is a negative image–that creepy effect where skin glows white, teeth look black and noses, cheeks and fingers seem frostbitten–but the result is beautiful. I especially love how poured and splashed liquid looks like white-hot metal and people’s eyes take on a washed-out, Modigliani-type look.
