B.C. Art for – Metallica

Wondering why Metallica’s music video for their new album and film is posted here?

It’s because the stunning environmentally themed imagery of Victoria artist Kelly Richardson is included in the video, produced for Metallica’s 72 Seasons, the title track on the American heavy metal band’s latest album. 

Origin Stories, (detail, channel 3) 2023, 4k video, multichannel, seamless loop, silent

Richardson, a visual arts professor at the University of Victoria, creates futuristic video installations of devastated landscapes using computer-generated imagery, animation and sound. Metallica projected three of her works, including HALO (III) and Origin Stories, at a massive scale as they performed the title track.
