Our director interview today is with Robin Van Rijn whose work was first introduced to me through the stunning visuals he created for Bride of the Atom’s live gigs. His mixed media motion graphics piece, Cities of the World was inspired by a quote from the recently deceased French cultural theorist and philosopher Jean Baudrillard and stands as a fine tribute to his ideas and concepts.
Cities of the World (2006)
