2013, HD, Cityscapes II : CHICAGO

This work is the second installment of a series of videos paying tribute to the skyline of cities where the artist has a personal attachment to. Kai-Duc LUONG first created 'Cityscapes I: Paris' paying homage to the city of light from his childhood's apartment balcony in the 18th district of Paris - a video which featured an ethereal Parisian Skyline transformed into a Rorschach of colors and emotions as time passes by.

'Cityscapes II : Chicago' portrays in a unique fashion the city where the artist grew up as an adult - Chicago. And so as the series goes, childhood gives place to adulthood and this second installment of cityscapes features an enlightened, fast paced, contemporary urban setting where the skyline evolves and morphs as time passes by yet again. Featuring a hypnotically haunting musical score specifically composed for this piece by composer/singer/songwriter Brett Callaway.

This piece reads like a symphony in three movements in relationship to the artist's life path (youth and discovery, corporate adulthood and the illusion of happiness, concluding with the artistic life hereafter)...
