The 1975 - Rindon Johnson responds to ‘Don’t Worry’

‘Don’t Worry’ from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Out now -

The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from ‘NOACF’.
06 Rindon Johnson responds to ‘Don’t Worry’

Like a couple other artists in this exhibition, Rindon Johnson was inspired by ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ to produce a vision of utopia. “In almost all my work,” he says, “I like to make sure that if I’m animating a different type of reality, it speaks to the possibility of a different state of being and relation. So I wanted to set this film in a permaculture city; one that lives harmoniously with the earth and encourages the slow stillness of being in direct dialogue with one’s natural surroundings.”
In Johnson’s computer-generated city of tomorrow, the sidewalks are made of packed earth and orchards grow on the street providing healthy food for all. Clean energy come from wind turbines and solar panels on the roofs. It’s a greener, more socialist vision of urban society, but also a charming and sexy one.
The film’s narrative came to Johnson organically upon hearing the song for the first time, he says: “I closed my eyes and sort of felt the movement of a really gentle dance and thought it might be a nice way to speak towards that sensation. To think about different forms of closeness. I also didn’t want to do anything too over the top because the song demands something quiet and straightforward; a kind of direct address to another person.”
His character takes a walk through the neighbourhood one evening, listening to the uplifting piano ballad ‘Don’t Worry’, and looking up at a window, happens to catch somebody dancing on their own. The two strangers share a moment of intimacy together through the window. It’s a moment of empathy and perhaps erotic frisson; a socially distanced romance.
During this time of crises, particularly in urban centres and in the United States, many of us have been thinking about how modern cities and societies can be improved; and Johnson has not only been dreaming of what these cities could look like, but also of the kinds of lives we might live within them.

  • blur.

    Before saying that Matty is on crack people should read the description of these videos. IG stans are complaining about every single one one these videos like it's that hard to read the description? I know that not everyone studied art and not everyone is interested in video arts but please have some respect for the band and for the artists's work before joking about Matty being on drugs. Period. We can't expect them to make videos like the old ones, they're grown men now.

    I feel like these visualisers had so much potential like they could have been so cool and told more of a story, gone more with the song, meant more, I really don’t like any of them at all... and I don’t even think they’re artistic I think they’re lazy ngl because with proper art you want to express something you’d want to express this song in a perfect way, but it’s just, how can you call that visual it’s visually displeasing, kinda sad cu I love noacf and I think so much more could have been done, like I really don’t think you can feel that way listening to taht song like it’s such a beautiful song and the characters in this are so fricking ugly hahaha wtf like they could have done SOOO much more cuz their talent is obviously there in the scenery don’t understand why they applied in that way it could have been soo much more expressive and visually pleasing :(

    I'm literally crying right now. I am suffering from anxiety this past few days, then I ended up listening "don't worry" repeatedly. It feels like this song can save me from drowning, drowning from the thoughts that I couldn't handle. This will help a lot. I love you so much matty and the whole lot of crew☹️💖💖
