Sixth Chapter In Sigur Rós’ 'Valtari Mystery Film Experiment'
Ryan McGinley for "Varúð"
The 'Valtari Mystery Film Experiment' carried out by Sigur Rós continues its course. We remind you that the idea of the project was to bypass the process of artistic supervision and approval that usually takes place in the majority of this type of commissions, giving the filmmakers involved total creative freedom, to the point that not even the band itself has any idea what direction the videos will take until they see them entirely finished, without the chance to veto the results. After Ramin Bahrani’s visual poem for “ Ég anda”, this time it is Ryan McGinley’s turn, with his interpretation of “Varúð”. The photographer invites us to take a magical journey through the streets of New York alongside a strange, golden-haired girl who is crossing the city unaware of the dangers of traffic.
