VANS Europe rounds off its collaboration with French brand ÖCTAGON by releasing a special video project set in the heart of Paris, France.
CODEBASE continues to adopt ÖCTAGON’s methods of blending Sci-Fi with black and white visuals. With the software enabled the video proceeds to showcase Yeelen Moens, Valentin Bauer and Joseph Bias exploring and skating new terrains across Paris, France.
Deep in the highest security labs of the ÖCTAGON system headquarters, scientists from the Vans unit have been busy with a new confidential program known as “Codebase”. They are the gatekeepers of the system built to keep individuals under control. Their role is crucial to maintain order by making human beings comply with the data they receive.
Codebase is conducted by the corporation in an attempt to create a new version of plugs aiming at improving surveillance within the system. Technological progress made in this post-modernist era now enable these plugs to be mounted straight onto individual’s feet in order to precisely track their movements.
