The breathtakingly gorgeous Icelandic landscape comes to life in the Bon Iver ‘Halocene’ video. Australian photographer and filmmaker Nabil Elderkin directed the incredible piece, just under 6 minutes long, that shows a young boy exploring some of Iceland’s most beautiful countryside scenery. It’s hard to believe the landscapes aren’t computer-generated; it's like a scene from a fantasy film. Animation is used in the final seconds of the video, but the rest is Iceland in its natural form.
Stunning works of art like the Bon Iver ‘Halocene’ video show that the age of incredible music videos is far from over. Elderkin’s shots look like they could be from an episode of Planet Earth, and almost act like a tourist promo for Iceland. Combined with Justin Vernon’s haunting voice, the video becomes a powerful and moving piece of contemporary art. ‘Halocene’ definitely solidifies Bon Iver as one of 2011’s strongest and most influential artists.
