The human race is drawing in more and more of its information visually, through the filter of visual mass media. This fact becomes clear as one individual discovers, acknowledges and succumbs to the reality of visual media as the major form of human information and communication. For better or for worse "we are the visual race."
Featuring the artist's performance, film images, layered video-processed images and original digitally sampled score and lyrics.

Vidéoclip expérimental combinant des extraits de films et de vidéos. The Visual Race donne à voir les couleurs de la mer traitées en cadence avec des voix générées digitalement, d'austères paysages urbains en contrepoint de textures sonores ou de séquences de la performance musicale originale.
Les successions d'images stratifiées, les chansons sur les valeurs de la société moderne et la toute puissance des media y apparaissent finalement comme la réaction du personnage au monde moderne. Une journée métaphorique donc, commençant sur la plage d'une mer originelle et finissant par l'observation narcissique, à travers l'oeil déstructurant de la caméra représentant l'image médiatique.
