A music video for the artist Maris. A depiction of holding onto something so tightly that you crush it.
Run time: ~3 min
This music video was developed in 2019 between Maris Ward and K.Tone. The whole video was shot in and around NYC in three days. The video depicts the two parts of Maris as conflicting lovers, one being the possessive and almost strangling part of her and then the strong and confident part of her. Tarot cards, religion, and nature are big visual metaphors in this video to express this delicate balance between love, support, and nurture versus suffocation and possession.
