Koda’s White Dove music video was tasked with exploring a complexity of an inescapable toxic relationship. After a few conversations with Koda, the raw, stare-you-in-the-face honesty of Vito Acconci’s performance work kept coming to mind, at least his performative explorations of the darker elements of love. In collaborating, we wanted to fuse that textural performance work with something more dream-like and ethereal. We found our setting in Morro Bay, California. The sunrise over the dunes there had the openness and built-in sense of release that we were looking for — the way Koda found respite through music and ultimately the strength to walk away.



I think your video is really, really good. By showing less - the power of the music comes through - in general it plays with our imagination. I also like that I get lost in it… the feeling of falling and all that.
