Kish says of the video, “Spark is about keeping a fire lit within yourself. I directed the video out of necessity. The last video for “Bite Me” Justin Potter (DP) and I had a lot of setups and props and puppets. This time we decided we wanted a completely simple video where the majority of the change comes from the lighting. We start in full sun and move to complete darkness with a single flashlight and it’s beautiful the way the landscape changes. A lot of time there’s a focus on making cuts quicker and having more scenes to make things constantly engaging to viewers. Personally, I enjoy a slow build or even the anticipation of something happening that may not. I obviously like a bit of oddness in the films I make. Due to the passage of time, spark really feels like a long, long walk searching for something you may or may not find – which is the whole basis of the song.”
Redux marks Kilo Kish’s fourth collaboration with producer Ray Brady and explores Kish’s varying musical influences, including electronic, synth, alternative, hip hop, and dance-punk. The title Redux is emblematic of Kilo Kish’s career, marking a revival of creative power and personal authorship, bringing her and listeners an increased freedom and boldness.
Kish, who Vogue has called “a true Renaissance woman,” recently debuted BLESSED ASSURANCE: a dream that i had, an immersive audio-visual installation at the HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles. Flaunt described the exhibit as “an immersive exhibition critiquing the interactivity between spiritual and creative spaces. At its core the sacrificial nature of the artist’s way is explored.”
Kilo Kish has also collaborated with Rodarte, Maison Kitsuńe, and Vice, is known for creating vivid visual and wearable art. She’s co-directed several of her music videos, crafted a video game interface, presented a myriad of multimedia installations. “Kilo Kish is the type of multi-disciplinary artist you can never quite pin down but wouldn’t want to anyway lest you risk clipping her wings,” noted Paper.
