Director Matteo Zamagni – also known as øøøø – created landscapes of imagined planets by manipulating photographs of cabbage, plastic bags and broccoli in his video for TSVI’s song Malfunction.

Zamagni’s video for Italian artist TSVI is based on a narrative about a group of planets decaying in the wake of a passing asteroid breaking apart and releasing a destructive organism.

The director created the topographic images by using a technique that involves photographing an object from multiple angles and feeding the images into software that then creates a 3D computer model. This model can then be manipulated, shaped and edited. Zamagni used this method with images he shot of cabbage, broccoli and plastic bags laid out on a table – the uneven surfaces of these objects suiting the kinds of textures and terrains he had in mind for the planets.

In other words, the music is pretty rad too.
