We don't think there is only one 'visual style' in all the Pleix films. But there is an ambience, an atmosphere working on the edge of things.
The Pleix touch could be a common theme on limits, contradictions and accidents that show the fragility of the digital world and the world in general. We all like producing tension by joining together heterogeneous graphics, videos and sounds. Netlag
combines footage from over 1609 live web cameras around the world. The music to Netlag
is composed by Henrik José aka BLISS. The title of the track is Do You Remember How It Felt?
