Smoothboi Ezra 'Stuck' by Arthur Studholme
In Arthur Studholme's imaginative video for Irish singer-songwriter Smoothboi Ezra, a man made of flowers invades the home of a couple as they sleep, and soon causes emotional havoc.
The song Stuck is about the point at the beginning of the end of a relationship, and Studholme uses the powerful vision of the Flower Man as the agent of another strong visual device, to represent that painful moment. One of the couple is woken to carry out the intruder's bidding - which is to paint herself out of their photos. Then the 'whited-out' technique is repeated with the couple's home movie footage, where the Flower Man figure also starts to appear.
Studholme fuses these graphic elements together into a very satisfying whole. It's a quietly powerful video and in this case, the fact 'it was all a dream' is no cop-out.
