Porter Robinson 'Worlds' Tour Visuals

Dreamscapes, loneliness and cat masks.


'Worlds' Live – Themes and Concepts

 

Porter wanted a set of visuals that had a quality of ‘found-tumblr-gif’ feel to it, imperfectly looping vignettes which would echo the enormous spectrum of emotions invoked by the music itself:  V A S T N E S S. Surrealism. Emotion.

Every 'found' vignette was built from scratch by the PICNIC team. Tapping into the concepts of rapture, frisson and far out goosebumps induction, we explored made worlds, inexplicable visual events with a great sentimentality and nostalgia.

Ultimately creating a set of visuals which were able to be mixed and edited for the show where people literally *died of joy by the aural-visual stimulation - they said.

Characters

Alternative-­fashion ­inspired character designs. With doses of dreamlike solemn sadness, and a quiet cigarette-smoking romance.

Dreamscapes

Awe­-inspiringly pretty scenery, relentlessly beautiful wide shots - the dreamscapes frequently conveyed a sense hugeness, importance, and grandiose beauty.
