You Never Know How the Past Will Turn Out

Wading through answers about gods in the form of a video, digital book, and prints

A video wading through a bunch of answers about God. The video is meant to overwhelm by layering with conflicting exterior and interior frames. The interior frame is an e-book generated using every image from the Wikipedia pages for ‘God’ and ‘Deities’. The videos filling the exterior frame are the most popular free stock videos available on a high-quality royalty-free stock video website, acting as a sort-of catalog for humanity’s current cultural moment. The texts adorning the top and bottom frame are two separate streams of consciousness, changing with each page turn of the interior frame book. The top slowly reveals text from the Wikipedia articles the images are from, while the bottom offers personal individual reflections.

Random frames from the video are printed and create some real fun images.
