Martin de Thurah’s videos have a mystery to them that I think is amazing. At times, it’s very much on the surface: a strange costume, elements of sci-fi. But often there’s just something indescribably beautiful and weird in the way he frames an apple tree, in the way he launches you straight into a story without exposition, in the way he makes you feel as if something is off but you can’t figure out what it is.
