Best known for his music videos for Björk and FKA twigs, artist and director Andrew Thomas Huang works across mediums, from animation puppetry to virtual reality.
“We did our first collaboration [for] ‘Mutual Core’ from her album Biopholia, so that was my first music video for her,” he said.
For the collaboration, Huang shot Lily Chan and the Doom Girls, inspired by his mother’s childhood growing up as an Asian-American teenager in Los Angeles in the 1960s.
With the project, Huang re-created scenes and imagery similar to those that his mother and her friends experienced in the ’60s, while also highlighting the Asian LGTBQ+ community during the era.
“The music video is basically a story about the strive for perfection and the fall from grace,” Huang said.
