Luke Tierney - 6th Aug 2014

Taking inspiration from the medieval Dance Of Death paintings, Nick Rutter creates a dark and eerie promo for Vaults' Lifespan.

Much like "Death from Lübeck" (roughly speaking, the Danish version of 'looking like death warmed up') the video is a series of still life portraits depicting people from different parts of society. Unlike the painting, death does not explicitly show itself, but it's relationship with life is examined throughout.
