A double video for Dutch singer Reindier - aka Reinier Van Harten - by Tanja Busking takes us from idyllic nature to a technology-filled world and the impact when the artist becomes overwhelmed by the latter. 

Busking says: "The video for Aphrodite symbolizes a perfect symbiosis between nature and technology: a place in which these two opposites are in harmony. Later, in Tentacles, we see a technological misbalance, which slowly takes over the protagonist, forming a new alter-ego.

"Feminine versus masculine energy is a main theme - as one of the central topics is the struggle of a human being with the oppression of his sexual orientation by both society and himself - leading to his eventual transformation into a robot void of emotion."
