Music Video Review: ORACLE, USA

 Bright, vivid and surprisingly sensual, ORACLE Directed by Jessica Baston is a sharpe and creative music video. A woman slowly paints herself in textured gold paint throughout the song.

Boasting sharp camera work and playing with use of light and focus, ORACLE is a spellbinding work of visual fluidity. Not to go unrecognized is the subtle (and not so subtle) metaphors running through the work, calling to mind ancient myths and legends of Greek and Roman times, such as Midas or the Oracle of Delphi.

A highly polished performance with stunning execution of form for the genre, ORACLE is a spectacle that will delight the senses.


Short Film played at the EXPERIMENTAL FEEDBACK Film Festival in December 2017

Review by Kierston Drier

ORACLE, 3min., USA, Music Video
Directed by Jessica BatsonAn art collaboration between a film collective and band. A beautiful short, visually stimulating and emotionally conflicting. A woman being consumed by gold.
