A body with undulating skin, coallesces into a figure that floats, grows and becomes huge, barely contained by the warehouse building that surrounds it, in Máni M. Sigfússon's mesmerising video for the equally hypnotic Odyssey Pt II by Talos.

Created in photorealistic CGI, accentuating the eeriness of the piece, Sigfússon has revealed that the video is loosely based on a quote from the classic Andrei Tarkovsky film Stalker:

"Weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it's tender and pliant. But when it's dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are death's companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened will never win."
