Deserted Eyes is a song, animated music video and WebGL project by the Greek multi-instrumentalist Oh. (Olivia Hadjiioannou).
The song takes the listener beyond the vicissitudes of relationship and love – beyond the criteria of reciprocity and togetherness.
It casts a light on the individual within the relationship rather then the relationship itself. Expressing how one’s state of mind — if left unchecked and allowed to settle too long in dark and despondent moods —eventually wears away at the soul of the other — casting an immutable spell unwittingly upon the one you love.
The video was filmed during the late summer of 2017 in Greece where a tragic oil spill occurred causing an ecological disaster in the waters of the Saronikos and irreparable damage to the interpersonal relationships of the coastal community.
During post-production, we could not ignore the correlation that tragic event had to the song and so incorporated the visuals into the final clips.
The music video was created with traditional hand-drawn, 2D, 3D and motion graphics. The project also includes an innovative online WebGL experience embedding YouTube video, music players and animated elements to create a 3D web experiences using three,js.
