New cover art made for Sergei Tumanov – Under The Surface (video installation), published by UNDER SOUND (Melbourne, Australia).
The given visual installation by Sergei Tumanov is dedicated to the world of 2020 and represents a feeling of being in limited space with lots of pressure from all directions and as a metaphorical representation of the concept, the main object in the video is water. Even though water might also represent the flow of life, it creates pressure that might be unmanageable for those who are not equipped. The right mental state might be the equipment to stay safe and thus find an exit from any situation and that is the main idea of the video.
For the video, Sergei is using an underwater action camera (under the surface) to create a feeling of pressure which is, however, decreasing closer to the end of the video to represent the hope of finding an exit and letting all the water (fears, anxiety) go away.
