Space Above is the atmospheric-electronic project of New Zealand music producer Aaron Short, formerly of The Naked And Famous. After an experience shared with McCarthy aka Boyboy during a time of earthquakes in Los Angeles, McCarthy was inspired to lyrically explore the fear, helplessness, and inevitable acceptance one goes through when overwhelmed by forces much greater than our own.
I came into this project as an external collaborator, to help visualize the key concepts of the track. The idea of surrendering and overcoming, not only to the world around but also yourself, were the main staples of this video. We wanted to speak of the transcendental human nature and how space and time can fold when realizing the life’s loop within which you build, destroy and evolve.
