Art x Film: Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic x Diplo - SCRIPTURA VITAE

I'm completely obsessed right now with Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovicdesigner, calligrapher, artist and creative director of the music and arts collective Earnest Endeavours.

Having previously collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, Beams, Heineken and Kenzo on their eye-poppingly wild and vibrant SS13 show, the innovative and experimental visual pioneer has now presented a trailer for his directorial debut, 'SCRIPTURA VITAE'. 
Commissioned as part of Channel 4's Random Acts series, the short film explores his own artwork through a cryptic journey of life vs. death and art vs. artist, with themes of duality and folklore fused into a poetic visual performance.

Starring famed Japanese actress Miho Nikaido and Butoh performer and dancer Maki Shinagawa, the film is set to a soundtrack by Diplo, Brit electro-DJ Actress and avant-garde London duo Plaitnum
Shot in stylish black and white, the project also includes director Shane Annas' signature editing style.

SCRIPTURA VITAE premieres in full on October 22 via Random Acts.
