"Lay Down Your Weapons" by Strange Freedom

In Strange Freedom's newest video for their song "Lay Down Your Weapons," Austrian video artist Christian Stangl infused a sense of humaneness into a bleak atmosphere. Stangl says, "In particular we focused on the most common feature of identification: the human face. At first, it seems defenseless, even motionless, dead, fading into the background like stone. It looks like endless layers of dust and debris smothering every pore, every twitch of expression. All blessings and wounds paint traces onto faces. 'Lay down your weapons' describes a long battle to survive.
This music video is based on thousands of single macroscopic and microscopic photographies."
