Images, Distant Thoughts

Uploaded on Wednesday 26 June 2013


This film took the title as a starting point, then created a cine poem about the unknown spaces we pass on the train as it was created. It is unfinished I feel and will be updated with new video when the time allows.

In 2011, Maps and Diagrams approached Daniel Hopkins to see if he'd be interested in making four music videos to coincide with the release of two new albums on Ian Hawgood's Nomadic Kids Republic label, based in Japan. As a result of this request Daniel Hopkins has produced four videos for the Maps and Diagrams songs: Images, Distant Thoughts / Circa / One Kind of Blue and Found Objects. The songs feature on both the Lights Will Call On You and The Town Beneath The Sea albums on Nomadic Kids Republic. Each visual segment takes inspiration from the music and track titles which, combined with Daniel's cinematic interpretation assembles both the music and visual form into four unified but also contrasting pieces of work.
