A standout track from Objekt's debut LP, Flatland, the lopsided "Second Witness" has been given a video treatment. The result of a collaboration between Objekt, Swiss visual artist Rachel Buehlmann, and photographer Joe Dilworth (with additional help from French-Japanese artist Nine Yamamoto-Masson), the clip is said to further expand on one of Flatland's main conceptual focuses, specifically "the idea of seeing a complex scene from every angle at once" as the video "explores the theme of vision and the limitations of sight, probing the desire to escape one's own restricted point of view." What we're left with is a grainy collage of moving images which spiral around and amongst an array of shapeless film strands, floating spheres, and swaths of other abstract imagery.

Objekt's immersive clip for "Second Witness" can be watched in full below; the Berlin-based artist's XLR8R Pick'd debut full-length is out now via PAN.
