The Ninth Wave 'Human Behaviour' by Ainsley Bowman
Ainsley Bowman's video for Glasgow band The Ninth Wave, shot in an old shipbuilding warehouse in the artist’s hometown, is a dark and surreal visual that places the artists centre stage as they slowly entangle themselves with rope.
“Human Behaviour struck a chord with me from the first listen. As well as loving the track, I really resonated with the message and feeling behind the music. Using rope to visually explore disconnection and separation, I wanted to create a surreal portrait of a relationships journey and the self sabotaging lengths people go to for connection.
"Playing out in reverse chronological order, a cruel and absurd irony presents itself - the more entangled they become physically, the less connected they are emotionally. There is a visceral and unregulated honesty within the song that I wanted to bring into the performance. Millie and Haydn made this really easy, throwing themselves unreservedly into the performative elements of the video and really going for it which wasn’t always easy when bound by and trailing nearly 1km of rope between them!
"Incorporating Shibari (Japanese bondage) into the styling, elevated the rope from being a functional means to an end, to an artistic element loaded with symbolism. We shot this in a gritty warehouse by the old shipbuilding docks in Glasgow. There was a great energy on set and everyone went above and beyond to manifest this vision into a reality, so massive thanks to my collaborators for helping me make this happen.”
