A surreal video for Saro by Los Angeles-based director Alex Cook (previously featured here). Inspired by the lack of privacy experienced in the digital age, “Please” explores the idea of getting lost in the labyrinth of the personas we create:

“In the visual, we follow Saro through a strange, shifting maze full of obscured figures and gazes that follow his every move, though in the end it’s all a creation of his own projection… [It’s about] How it feels like every movement is being surveilled at all times. Voyeurs casting judgment through peepholes with their identities veiled.”
