Video artist Jennifer Juniper Stratford has directed the video for Condemnation, a single released in memory of music video and film director, musician and artist Travis Peterson. Travis died in January 2017 after being reported missing by his wife, visual artist Emilie Halpern.
Depeche Mode’s track has been covered by Ramona Gonzalez, Julia Holter, Cole M.G.N and Nedelle Torrisi, who all worked with Travis on music videos. The director was known for his music videos with Ariel Pink, Glass Candy, Geneva Jacuzzi, Vivian Girls and Nite Jewel, and short films Salvation Mountain, Indio, USA and Circus.
The subtly emotive video for Condemnation uses Jennifer’s techniques of image manipulation and multi-layered visuals. Proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services in Los Angeles.
The artists commented: “Aside from being an authentic and talented artist and collaborator, Travis was a great friend beloved by many in Los Angeles and around the world. Known for his infectious laugh, sense of mischief, and passion for art, music, and architecture, Travis was simply a pleasure to be around. We hope you will check out a link to some of his work.”
