Video: 'The Architect' by the Belgian (Antwerp) band Deus from the album 'Vantage Point' (April 2008); video by Arnaud Delord, Caleb Krivoshey and Frank Seiler from ADN Factory. The song was inspired and contains voice samples of the American architect, author, designer, futurist... Buckminster Fuller (1895 – 1983) who had also ideas for quantifying information - perhaps this was the inspiration for the electric set theory graphics and numbers which are overlaying the music video.
