"Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity." (Eccl. 1:2; 12:8) ‘Vanitas’ portrays four idle characters in the future: a singer, a what-naut, a gamer and an office building. Revolving around the characters’ observations, it wonders about the transient and often meaningless seeming nature of human activity. The video was shot in an empty office building situated in the center of a Dutch city. It uses science-fiction-inspired methods to discuss the relation of human lives to technology and the disappearance or radical redefinition of work, while also exploring broader and timeless matters such as loneliness, alienation and mortality.
