MOMENTS | Mash-up: FKA twigs x Google Glass Collaborate For Digital x Reality Bending Short Film #throughglass
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
FKA twigs (Tahliah Barnett) made #throughglass, a conceptual short film she directed for and made via Google Glass. We have to say, the way she uses Google Glass is genuinely inspired. Known for her highly-regarded choreography, twigs puts on Google Glass before bursting into dance routines inspired by the videos streamed directly to her eyes.
If that wasn’t cool enough, things get surreal when twigs is joined by her doppelgängers, who dance and perform for the audience and a bemused twigs. #throughglass also, appropriately, features remixed versions of “Video Girl” and “Glass Patron”. The short film is the most artistic use of Google Glass we’ve seen yet, and it’s an interesting exploration into how the increasingly digitized world has on identity.
We didn’t think anything could make the Google Glass cool, but if anyone can do it, it’s breakout artist FKA twigs. Watch the short film below.
