Zola Jesus – ‘Vessel’ (video)


Serial music video collaborator Jacqueline Castel provides the rich visuals for Zola Jesus‘ ‘Vessels’ video. Shot in the New Mexico desert, it was “inspired by the Sphinx moth, who passes through metamorphosis in underground chambers and whose natural habitat is the desert.”

“In Vessel, science fiction, wave phenomena, and the abstracted metamorphosis of the moth life cycle are visually manifested in the surreal landscapes of underground mineral caves and icy, remote dunes. Themes of duality and transformation weave throughout, with Nika’s own voice revealed as vibrational patterns in water through the microscopic observation of Cymatics.”

So there.
