About the Work

Plains Of Yonder conceived and created the opening title sequence for Mike White’s HBO series The White Lotus. The social satire takes a hard, tropical stare into lives of the overprivileged the chasm between those being served and those doing the serving. To capture the peculiar spirit of the show, we conceived of a series of idyllic wallpaper patterns inspired by the resort suites within the show (Palm, Hibiscus, Pineapple and Tradewinds). These patterned chapters become little worlds where monkeys frolic and leopards snooze on giant leaves. But as the gaze moves closer, all is not well in paradise; A chameleon transforms, testicular fruit rots on the vine, a snake lays in wait, insatiable caterpillars decimate their own scenery, a fish finds its end in a tangle of venomous tentacles, and traditional outrigger rowers battle an unsurmountable wave. The scenes hold hidden clues to themes and storylines within the show. The scenes are treated with physical wallpaper effects: real-world light reflections, mis-registered paper seams, hand held camera movements, mold growth and ink-bleed animations.
