Memory Maze – Modern Spring

Memory Maze’s “Modern Spring” starts off featuring a close up of different types of flowers on a white background. After the high contrast of the flowers, the camera fades to a person sitting in a completely white space as well, and it starts to turn into a much more calm, meditative image. Whether that is because the woman on screen has her eyes closed and is moving slowly and calmly, as if she her self is meditating, or because of the slow tempo of the music is anyone’s guess, but the images and song work together as they cut back and forth to make a slow, pensive image. It begins to show different sides of her emotions, from calm to impassioned, back and forth, from her to just still images of flowers and plants and petals, until eventually she is covered in flower petals and leaves, as if combining her with nature. It is a very artful, interesting metaphor to watch on screen.
