The Chemical Brothers’ 2015 album Born in the Echoes ended with a sublime collaboration with Beck titled “Wide Open.” 

Today (Jan. 25), the British electronic duo shared a similarly enthralling video to accompany it. Members Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons commissioned frequent visual collaborators Dom & Nic to bring the song to life. Check out the results below:

According to a statement from the artists, dancer Sonoya Mizun’s transformation was inspired by Dom & Nic’s interest in cellular structures. In order to make the gradual cyborg metamorphosis possible, they created a full CG model of Mizun. The results are dazzling, and it certainly helps that she brought some serious moves to the warehouse.
