She looked strangely young, yet worn, exhausted. Her eyes were a peculiar glassy green, rather small, shrinking. She was no beauty, with eyebrows and lashes so pale a red as to be nearly colorless, and a translucent skin showing a tracery of small blue veins at her temples. Yet there was something fierce and implacable in her. A stubborness, almost a radiance. Like she had been wounded, real deep. Humiliated. But she was going to see it through, every drop of it.
video: Jamie xx - Sleep Sound
London based artist and poet Sofia Mattioli got the idea for her video for Sleep Sound by Jamie xx on the train: while she sat there listening to music through her headphones, feeding her brain and body with the sound, a deaf woman came up to her and told her that she could almost feel the music by her movement. With this chance encounter, she came up with a touching and beautiful video that somehow perfectly matches the rich palette of Sleep Sound, highlighting the fine beauty of music.
