Robot High School

I can't get this song out of my head. Every time when I listen to this song in my ipod, I can picture this video in my head. The limited use of color made this video simple and eye-catching. I love to use black, white, and red in my illustrations to get straight to the point. This video has used the same strategy.

"The music video address the issues of how perspective can manipulate our view of reality." ~Robot High School.
The viewer is able to focus on the black ball because the background is white (with black line patterns and polka dots). The ball hits and breaks the red balloons as a man in the red suit spins the wheel. In my opinion, the black ball represents "our view of reality", the red balloons portray "reality" and the man in the red suit symbolizes "perspective." Really simple and gets straight to the point.
