In 2015, British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers collaborated with Beck on “Wide Open” – a track on the 2016 Grammy Award nominated Born in the Echoes. The song has just been given a video, directed by Chemical Brothers collaborators Dom & Nic.

Five minutes and thirty-three seconds long, the video features a dancer performing in an empty warehouse while her body goes through a metaphysical revolution. As of time of writing, the striking video has reached nearly 40,000 views in a matter of hours since publication.

According to an official press release:

“Dom & Nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team at The Mill created a full CG model of the dancer, Sonoya Mizuno, comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance.”
