Stickup is a code-based generative lyrics video I directed and programmed for the track Stickup by Karma Fields & MORTEN featuring Juliette Lewis. The entire lyrics video consists of multiple stages that are programmed and generated using Processing.
The system for generating the visuals is partially derived from the one previously used in Build the Cities. Lyrics are parsed, making each layer of quadtree structure subdivide itself to a corresponding pattern.3 hearts

I know none nobler; and I pity him
In his misery, albeit he is my foe,
Since he is yoked fast to an evil doom.
My own lot I regard no less than his.
For I see well, nought else are we but mere
Phantoms, all we that live, mere fleeting shadows.
Peter Nejedly, Rimavská Sobota, Slovakia.

For it was in attending her funeral that my wife was seen by this man, who in time corrupted her. He looked out for the servant-girl who went to market, and so paid addresses to her mistress by which he wrought her ruin.
