Nature intertwines with the artificial in Matthew O'Connor & Martin Blanco's video for New York duo .kofi + Narayana. 

Painted with abstract colours and patterns, the pair start off in a natural wonderland under bright blue skies, set against miles of lush scenery. Artificial glitches start to distort the visual, matched by increasingly offbeat conceptual setups, leading to a striking climax in Times Square. 

The quickfire edit and spiralling eccentricity create a high-energy, contemporary aesthetic, which is elevated by DoP/co-director Blanco's distinctive composition and eye for detail.
