Julien Mier & Magical Mistakes - Divide, Multiply from Keita Onishi on Vimeo.

Porcelain polygons and muted mannequins abound in a cosmic assembly line in director Keita Onishi's music video for Julien Mier & Magical Mistakes' "Multiply, Divide." Inspired by the infinite proliferation of mathematical images and Borges’ “Library of Babel,” Onishi sets to rhythm a metaphysical factory where individuals are boxed up and sent off into a floating universe of Euclidean geometry. "It is difficult to explain what is happening in detail because I have not set a clear story…" Onishi tells The Creators Project. "Rooms containing people with black boxes continue to proliferate indefinitely. They seem to be able to monitor the world through black box."

Created using only Cinema4D's default objects for Canadian Label King Deluxe's four-year anniversary compilation, YEAR FOUR, the result immerses you somewhere that may or may not be an all-powerful creator's factory floor. "I want to leave it to the imagination of the viewer," explains Onish. So, what do you think?
