The six synchronized video channels showcase music videos in a carefully orchestrated yet randomly ordered sequence across flowing streams. These videos manipulate familiar pop song lyrics, initially delivering messages of love, hope, and dreams. Guided by video script ideas, the rearrangement of these lyrics reveals concealed and feared aspects often overlooked in conventional narratives.
