Emma K - 3rd Sept 2018

Dave Meyer's creates the Gospel of Travis Scott in his video for the rapper's new track Stop Trying To Be God.

Combining outlandish VFX and various explicitly biblical visual concepts, Meyers creates a brilliantly executed performance piece that while arguably blasphemous and calculatingly crude, appears to underline the iconography and worship surrounding modern-day celebrities. 

An idea reinforced by the brief cameo made by Scott's partner, Kylie Jenner, who appears as a glowing, Madonna-ish figure.
