LEA PORCELAIN Unveil Expansive Visuals for ‘Clock Of Time’
In case you forgot that we’re over halfway into the year already, Lea Porcelain remind you of the quickly slipping time with their newest video.
If you’ve ever felt even the slightest ounce of disbelief that we’re already 8 months into 2019 (seriously, where has the time gone?), then the newest video from Lea Porcelain is for you. The Berlin-based duo share the visuals for Clock Of Time, lifted from their newest EP Love Is Not An Empire and it follows the narrative of three different actors to emphasise the importance of time.
Speaking more of the accompanying visuals, the duo explains:
Clock of Time was the first video that we shot in Morocco and it pictures (similar to Love Is Not An Empire) a young girl in the streets of Morocco. Here the little girl symbolises a time-travelling being that is on earth to analyse people and their use of time. The sand that runs through the hands symbolises time and that individuals and societies can hardly cherish it and are unable to realise its value. Only something meaningful can show us the value of time. We then introduced two more characters “The Berber”, one of the native people of Morocco and the woman in the hijab. These three people are all from a separate age, generation and origin and the only thing that unites them is time. We took a lot of inspiration for the video from Ephraim Lessings book “Nathan the wise”. In this book, the two main characters discuss which of the 3 main religions is true – and we took a lot of that for the 3 characters in Clock of Time. Nathan compares religions, saying that each of us lives by the religion we have learned from those we respect. And our message for the viewer is: It doesn’t matter where you are from, the only thing that connects us is time. So, RESPECT YOUR TIME! Don’t Waste it. In 5 months its 2020.
