Enter Sam Tudor’s universe as reality falls apart in his New Apartment. A surreal trip into the ideas we conjure of who or what inhabited our spaces before we arrived. A one-take visual effects dance through the walls and voids of Tudor’s psyche.

Director’s Statement

The lyrical jumping-off point for the New Apartment video was this loaded passage from the song: ‘who are we but the floating remnants of a collision at the start of all time?’ I began to think of the objects that are discarded in the process of a person moving and the picture they paint for a new tenant about who or what came before them. Exploding this idea to a larger scale, I sensed a parallel in the hints left to us by the universe that allow us to piece together an understanding of reality. As the camera floats through a freshly-rented space, the remnants of a previous tenant become increasingly clustered and organized, like molecular structures or celestial bodies, revealing a strange reality behind the empty walls of a new apartment.
