On November 18th, Justice will return with Woman, their first album in five years. The 10-track effort serves as the follow-up to Audio, Video, Disco and is being supported today with a visual for the latest single “Randy”.
Though the clip is without the electronic duo of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, it does feature 25 television sets, which are all interconnected as part of an art installation by Thomas Jumin. Working in tandem like one gigantic TV screen, they display the song’s lyrics as well as stately footage of nature’s many wonders, such as waterfalls, canyons, flora and fauna, and even a solar eclipse.
In a statement, Jumin, who also served as the video’s director, talked about the piece:
“The idea for this screen installation came from an inclination for an aesthetic in live show lighting that is both powerful and minimalistic. The object itself, the CRT Trinitron by SONY, is iconic for people of a certain generation for its design and for its specific rendering of the image. The idea was to build an installation made of 25 screens from 1987 and to use them with video controllers and analogue converters. We simply filmed it like one would film an art installation, so as to retain the object’s authority and repetitive simplicity.”
